All Hail King Julien: Exiled trailer

David Rodriguez
David Rodriguez

Meh. Not as interesting as Penguins of Mad, and considering it's a netflix show it's probably gonna be shit.

Grayson Ward
Grayson Ward

Show's been plenty shit so far. A lot of leftie propagand in every episode. Even I think a diaper fetish episode….

Logan Perez
Logan Perez

Is this trend for DreamWorks/Netflix cartoons? Rebrand them as a new show after it gets too many seasons?

Christopher Russell
Christopher Russell

Meh. Not as interesting as Penguins of Mad

I'm still mad they cancelled penguins for this mediocre turd.

Anthony Long
Anthony Long

That's more due to the Nick deal ending

Lucas Gray
Lucas Gray

Puss in Boots is better.

Jason Russell
Jason Russell

Well, its got to be better than Fruit Ninja Frenzy Force.

Jace Hughes
Jace Hughes

Is Dragons:Race to the Edge good?

Gavin Watson
Gavin Watson

Given that they re-branded Veggietales in the House to Veggietales int he City, it kind of seems like it, doesn't it?
I feel like we need one more of their shows to do it before we know for sure.
Not Dragons though, Dragons was rebranding between seasons when it was still on TV, so it's allowed to do that. And probably will given that the latest season of Race to the Edge ends with the Edge in question being destroyed.

Blake Perry
Blake Perry

they're still making veggietales
does it actually still have christian messages? Or did those get CURRENT YEARed away?

Landon Morris
Landon Morris

This version is by Doug TenNapel, meaning they still have religious-themed morals at the end, but focus more on gag writing

Eli Bailey
Eli Bailey

For god's sake, let this franchise fucking die already.

Logan Reed
Logan Reed

If by Christian messages you mean the moral of every episode is cited from the bible, then yes.

Blake Lopez
Blake Lopez

Very subtle message right there

Daniel Bennett
Daniel Bennett

It's a four movie franchise.
Even if it isn't a high tier franchise, Madagascar is still one of their big ones.
So when Netflix gives you a bunch of money to make whatever you want, you dust off some of those big franchises and see if anyone still likes them.

Nicholas Taylor
Nicholas Taylor

I like the art style on The Peabody & Sherman Show cover, anybody seen the show?

Jack Murphy
Jack Murphy

Penguins of Mad
good
not even remotely canon with the movies and nothing but terrible plots and characters

Christopher Sullivan
Christopher Sullivan

It's kind of zany.
Like the animators are playing a game to see who can create the wackiest faces.

Austin Lewis
Austin Lewis

Even I think a diaper fetish episodeā€¦.
Yeah, that was a thing. Lots of shitty toilet humor and everyone showing off their 'hot' diapers.

Its still pretty true to itself surprisingly and its probably one of the few shows that have actually improved as they aged.

I'm still pissed they didn't go with the 2D path. They went 3D and just keep Puss confined to the same boring village in a magic bubble every fucking day when it should about him traveling the world and going on wild adventures damn it.

William Scott
William Scott

I like the music.

Bentley Johnson
Bentley Johnson

Maybe they just like that kind of mind turn off silliness.

Evan Long
Evan Long

He said Penguins were more interesting than Julian, not interesting period.

Noah Rogers
Noah Rogers

This isn't half bad, I might just watch it.

Brody Martin
Brody Martin

Nice, too short though.
We need this in the music video thread.

Lincoln Campbell
Lincoln Campbell

Well, Penguins already had their big movie, I imagine they wanted to try someone else.
Don't ask why the actual main characters of the movie franchise are never up for these kinds of things.

Kayden Morgan
Kayden Morgan

Are they still planning a second Puss movie?

Jackson Kelly
Jackson Kelly

It's not currently on the table right now.
I think maybe the TV Show is them trying to see if there's enough interest to greenlight Puss 2?

Blake Scott
Blake Scott

It is neat how almost all the stuff in the trailer is from past episodes.
He's going full story mode for the show's finale so it'll be interesting to see how he attempts to weave every random thing that's happened so far into one big thing.

Alexander Thompson
Alexander Thompson

It's alright. It's not bad but it's not great.

Brody Parker
Brody Parker

spirit reboot
modern day setting
Legit triggered. Why the fuck would they do this?

Aaron Nelson
Aaron Nelson

Well, little girls love horses, and they weren't going to do anything else with that IP

Luke Parker
Luke Parker

If it makes you feel better, the setting actually is still old-timey.
The main characters just look like they stepped out of the present day to be more relateable, I suppose.

Connor Cruz
Connor Cruz

You know, until the rip in the dimensions in the trailer, I kind of forgot that multiverse shenanigans were on the table.

Charles Richardson
Charles Richardson

I am partially disgusted by the artstyle, designs and the fact that this has to exist when the film was good enough as a standalone. Damn you Dreamworks. Next up you'll be making a 3D tv show about El Dorado with none of the adventurous feel and completely devoid of the charm of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.

Grayson Price
Grayson Price

Well, know I'm even more disgusted.

Jonathan Wood
Jonathan Wood

so they made gentle, sweet cat waifu into another "strong independent". Guess I can't say I'm surprised.

Josiah Bennett
Josiah Bennett

Well they had to given that she's the chosen one destined to rid the world of an ancient evil.

Hudson Perry
Hudson Perry

…. I think I'm glad I stopped watching this show after the first season.

Julian Brown
Julian Brown

I mean, that's what the entire show was building up to.

Jace Richardson
Jace Richardson

I figured it was about Puss doing random adventures.

Logan Martinez
Logan Martinez

Well, that's just the first season's episodic hijinks.
After that it's a serialized adventure about an ancient evil awakening and the cat of destiny.

Cooper Robinson
Cooper Robinson

I think the real crime is there's practically no art of Dulcinea. Not even of the QUALITY variety.

Alexander Hill
Alexander Hill

yeah, I can't say I'm happy they took it that direction but if you enjoy it that's fine.
if anyone has some ideas I might be willing to draw something. I enjoy cat characters.

Ayden Gonzalez
Ayden Gonzalez

Serialized is just kind of the way that works best with Netflix.
The King Julien showrunner even talks about how Netflix kept bugging him to make AHKJ into a more serialized show and that's where we are now with Exiled.

Levi Jones
Levi Jones

I suppose if it works then it works. It's not like being serialized is a bad thing.

Logan Butler
Logan Butler

Only a few days left, we'll just have to see.
I'm curious as to what happens next, in interviews he implied this "Exiled" story was just going to be one 13 episode season, and then season 6 was going to be the last one and written to be the definitive end.
I'll be curious to see if story mode continues into the last season as well.
And if they have to rebrand the show yet again if he stops being exiled after the end of this season.

Jack Anderson
Jack Anderson

She's shit. The black cat from the movie was better.

William Taylor
William Taylor

The show is here, let the fun times roll!

Lincoln Thompson
Lincoln Thompson

So much to work with, but such a worthless job is done. Absolutely disgusting.

Gavin Ortiz
Gavin Ortiz

What does serialized mean?

Ayden Ortiz
Ayden Ortiz

Episodic: Random plots of the day that don't really have a whole lot of connection with each other.
Serialized: There's an ongoing plot between episodes and they're all connected.
In Exiled's case, it's literally one continual 13 part story and the regular opening theme has been replaced with a recap of the previous episode.

Justin Collins
Justin Collins

I understand now, thanks user.

Dominic Sullivan
Dominic Sullivan

I suppose if you put all 13 together youd get a fairly decent summary of the entire arc.
Maybe not a good song though, the melody would repeat too much.

Gabriel Powell
Gabriel Powell

This is probably the reason I saw Madagascar cereal in 2017

Parker Green
Parker Green

It's actually pretty cool how this big story turned out.
As promised when he compared it to Mystery Inc, it does have a bunch of stuff that builds up to crazy cosmic events, but it still stays a comedy.
In fact, a lot of the final battle is just everyone watching all the big plans that have been set up throughout the arc and a bunch of extra deus ex machina all happen at once and most of them canceling each other out.
Now it'll be sad to see the show end next season.

Luis Green
Luis Green

And now it's like twice as terrible to think that Julien eventually abandons the kingdom without a second thought in the movies.

Andrew Gray
Andrew Gray

Dreamsworks touches nothing pre-madagascgar, be glad. Prince Of Egypt animated series, jesus

Cooper Gray
Cooper Gray

It's like they want DWA not to sell it to TV networks

Jayden Rivera
Jayden Rivera

Given that they started selling out AHKJ as soon as it "ended" (which it technically did because remember, Exiled is listed as an entirely new show), that's probably a fair point.

Joseph Fisher
Joseph Fisher

Here, I did that.

Isaac Mitchell
Isaac Mitchell

confined to the same boring village
the adventures
That is beyond stupid.

Camden Scott
Camden Scott

Well, it's a mystical town of great treasures that he accidentally broke the protective spell on, so adventure is just sort of drawn to it intrinsically.

Jaxon Harris
Jaxon Harris

It was blatant with the wall and scorpion/gun episodes, but were there any others?

Ryan Carter
Ryan Carter

A supervillain manages to sweet talk his way into office that one time.

Benjamin Martinez
Benjamin Martinez

with a southern accent to boot. Forgot about that.

Easton Hernandez
Easton Hernandez

Oh, and the big bad of Exiled starts spoofing Make America Great Again.

Hudson Brooks
Hudson Brooks

I just got to this, there's not even a set up for why he uses it, he just does. This is the most obvious pull.

Justin Anderson
Justin Anderson

Well it is Dreamworks, you gotta throw in the trendy pop culture reference from time to time.

Kayden Smith
Kayden Smith

Mort's got one of those physically hurts the voice actor to do voices.
I wonder if he appreciates that Mort has gone from a one liner character to a main character with lots of dialogue, often with multiple versions of himself.

Aiden Gray
Aiden Gray

A reference to that other Netflix show?

Thomas Gonzalez
Thomas Gonzalez

I post this only because My Little Pony always describes its adult male horses as "stallions"

Luke Johnson
Luke Johnson

I mean it's not like they are drawn with genitals anyway. Even when not being used as a sexual angle, having the unmentionables in their proper place is seen as icky.

Parker Jenkins
Parker Jenkins

Spirit was always notable in that they did bother to draw a little bump meant to represent genitals on the horses.

Sebastian Green
Sebastian Green

In the end, the most they did with the multiverse is use it to explain Mort's split personality disorder; he literally has other Morts living inside of him.

Tyler Price
Tyler Price

It gets a little off the wall, but that was sort of promised when he said he was going to make it like his past work on Mystery Inc.

Bentley Wright
Bentley Wright

Julien and PiB launched within a month of each other and so new releases of both are generally close together.
I hope PiB is soon because I want to see where it's going with "We defeated an ancient evil from the pits of hell but forgot to close the hellmouth he walked out of".

Connor Mitchell
Connor Mitchell

It's all fun and games until somebody loses an aye-aye.

Jackson Green
Jackson Green

Why all the Madagascar spin-offs? Has the franchise really been that successful?

Ryder Torres
Ryder Torres

Dreamworks mission statement is to create large franchises that can have many sequels.
It has 4 movies now, so they want to see if there's interest for a 5th.
Like how they tried a Croods show when they were working on Croods 2 before deciding maybe the sequel wouldn't work out.

Kevin Fisher
Kevin Fisher

In a darker story, this sequence of events would probably involve a deliberate suicide instead of an accident.
