If you love it when worlds collide and actors from your favorite shows star in new projects together, I have some great news for you. Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard and The Witcher's Anya Chalotra are teaming up for an upcoming sci-fi series based on a Marvel Comics title.
According to DigitalSpy, the animated series is called New-Gen and is set in a futuristic utopia of the same name. Finn and Anya will be voicing teenagers who are tasked with defeating a demonic overlord when their world is threatened by a nano-tech war.
The series is aimed at the family-friendly seven+ age group and will feature a multi-platform technological experience, including an augmented reality app that allows users to activate their own nano-tech powers. It will be produced by the animation team behind Rick and Morty. Avengers Assemble's Eugene Son is set to write, with Star Trek: Enterprise's Brent Friedman acting as showrunner.
New-Gen's distributor lauded the series as a "thrilling sci-fi adventure."
"We intend to take you to a visual place never seen before in the futuristic utopia of New-Gen," an official statement reads. "Finn Wolfhard, Nick Wolfhard, and Anya Chalotra [will] breathe life into the relatable lead characters as we move from comics distributed by Marvel to animated series and other multimedia platforms."
Even if the show is aimed at a younger audience, I'm excited to see what New-Gen has to offer! With talent like Wolfhard and Chalotra, anything is possible.
