They’re back from the dead and ready to wreak more havoc on the Warner Bros. lot! Animaniacs, the animated sitcom from the ’90s featuring a trio of wacky 1930s characters causing mayhem on the Warner Bros. lot, is getting the reboot treatment. A slew of new Animaniacs adventures are slated to debut on Hulu next month.
Now, the official Twitter account for the series revealed a brand spankin’ new trailer for fans to consume. It centers on our core trio adapting to the 21st century and includes a handful of 2020 jabs. But that’s not all! The Animaniacs are also going the brainy route with appearances from famed (attempted) world dominators Pinky and Brain. Their objective? Why, take over the world, of course! I can appreciate rock-solid motivation even after 25 years of slogging away at obtaining an insurmountable goal.
Additionally, the trailer pokes fun at social media, Hollywood relying on reboots because they’re running out of ideas and Donald Trump. I’m not a huge fan of reboots myself (unless warranted), but I really dig when a show teases itself. Self-aware meta humor is right up my alley. Bring on the Animaniacs!
Steven Spielberg executive produces the series from the mind of creator Tom Ruegger. Jess Harnell, Rob Paulsen and Tress MacNeille are returning to voice Wakko, Yakko and Dot, respectively. Additionally, Paulsen will lend his voice for Pinky. Maurice LaMarche will voice Brain and Dr. Ian Malcolm. Other actors include Andy Milder as Steven Spielberg and Abby Trott as Dr. Ellie Sattler. Yes, we’re getting some Jurassic Park love as well!
You can check out the reboot trailer below. Animaniacs will return for more zaniness with 13 new episodes on Friday, November 20, only on Hulu.
