According to Slashfilm, new details of the upcoming animated Netflix adaptation of Green Eggs and Ham have been released! Based on the children’s book of the same name by Dr. Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham will feature the main two characters of the book, Sam I Am, and the newly named, Guy Am I. And like all Dr. Seuss adaptations, the plot is incredibly expanded with the official synopsis being:
“The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Plains, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home. Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher. A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery. Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t). Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins. Our fakakta foursome are also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who’s out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy.”
Sam I Am will be voiced by Adam Devine, whilst Guy Am I will be voiced by Michael Douglas. Other cast members include EB (voiced by Ilana Glazer), Michellee (voiced by Diane Keaton), Snerz (voiced by Eddie Izzard), McWinkle (voiced by Jeffrey Wright), Gluntz (voiced by Jillian Bell), Goat (voiced by John Turturro), Fox (voiced by Tracy Morgan), Mouse (voiced by Daveed Diggs), and the Narrator (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key).
The thirteen-episode series is set to premiere in the fall 2019.
