After nearly 2 years since it’s announcement, we finally have our first look at Hulu’s Hit Monkey.
Check out the first trailer below!
Hit Monkey Announcement Trailer
The series stars Fred Tatasciore as protagonist Monkey, Jason Sedukis as Bryce, George Takei as Shinji, Ally Maki as Haruka and Olivia Munn will voice Shinji’s niece Akiko. Quite an impressive cast for a cartoon.
Hit Monkey Official Synopsis
Along with the trailer, we got an official synopsis.
Monkey’s peaceful existence in the Japanese alps is shattered by the tragic loss of his tribe—setting him on a course of revenge and violence in the very world of humans that are responsible for his plight. He’s a killer of killers with a bit of a rage problem. Throughout the series, he must learn to navigate the struggle between his inherently sweet nature and the evil acts he must commit. It’s through his complicated friendship with the Ghost of Bryce (a former assassin and now, Monkey’s unwanted conscience), that will determine whether Monkey will be consumed by his rage or channel it for good. This is the story of Hit-Monkey.
This show has potential to become a fan favorite cartoon and bring this beloved, yet niche character to the spotlight. Here’s hoping that Hulu does this justice.
Hit Monkey releases all 10 episodes November 17th on Hulu. What did you think of the first trailer for the series? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below or over on our social media!
