When Cartoon Network released Owen Dennis’s original short, Infinity Train almost two years ago, it was an instant sensation, and fans have been clamoring for more. Earlier this year Cartoon Network announced that the short would be expanded into a full series, and now we finally have the first teaser trailer!
I have to say, so far this show looks like amazing! The character design has changed a little from the original short, but Tulip still looks basically the same, and I like the new style. But for me, the standout thing from this teaser was the backgrounds. The painterly look for the scenery and locations looks absolutely beautiful, and unlike anything else on Cartoon Network right now! Likewise, the music sounds completely unique, and really gives this teaser a sense of mystery and foreboding. I love the overall feeling that the music creates for this trailer, and I really hope it’s indicative of what the show itself will sound like.
Everything about this teaser has me hyped for what’s to come, and I can’t wait to see where this show will take Tulip, and what adventures are in store for us!
What about you? What did you think of this teaser?
Will you be watching when the show premiers in 2019?
