A new animated series is coming to Netflix called “Centaurworld.” According to the company, the show will “transport viewers around the world to a colorful and imaginative land where fantastical creatures sing and adventure surrounds you.” The show is from first-time showrunner Megan Nicole Dong, who began as a story artist on DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2” and “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” before becoming a supervising director on Netflix’s “Pinky Malinky”.
The story follows a war horse who is transported from her embattled world to a strange land inhabited by silly, singing centaurs of all species, shapes, and sizes. Desperate to return home, she befriends a group of these magical creatures and embarks on a journey that will test her more than any battle she’s ever faced before.
Netflix also stated that Dong will executive produce the series alongside Dominic Bisignano (Star vs the Forces of Evil) who will serve as co-executive producer. Meghan McCarthy (My Little Pony franchise) will serve as story editor, and Toby Chu (Bao) will be the series composer. Netflix already picked up 20-episodes of the animated musical, and the company stated that “Centaurworld” will offer a mix of animation styles and each episode will include original songs in a variety of genres.
“Centaurworld” is the latest addition to Netflix’s original animated series slate. The other shows are “City of Ghosts” from Elizabeth Ito, “Kid Cosmic” from Craig McCracken, “Battle Kitty” from Matt Layzell, “Maya and the Three” from Jorge Gutierrez, and “Trash Truck” from Max Keane. The announcement came just a few hours after Netflix released a trailer for “The Last Kids on Earth,” and a few days after the platform premiered “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.”
