An early teaser for Starpets, a new animated series in development by Ubisoft Film & Television, released yesterday, featuring an older and wilder version of the Rabbids. The two-minute teaser features a stop-motion-inspired animation style, and was animated in VR using Quill software. In the trailer, intergalactic emperor John LeDouche threatens to destroy a planet inhabited by cute talking bunnies.
In Starpets, LeDouche learns of a prophecy from his mother, the Oracle. According to the prophecy, a Chosen One will soon end LeDouche's tyrannical reign. But as the Chosen One is about to die, 25% of his brilliant brain is transferred into a Rabbid's body, and our hero Ken is created. With the help of Queen Maya, Ken will try to save the Rabbids and the universe.
This sci-fi comedy for young adults was created by director Stéphane Berla (The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart). Starpets is being written by French comedy star Eric Judor (Represent, Weekend Family) and his long-time collaborator Hafid Benamar. Judor will also voice some of the main characters.
