A few days ago, Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig revealed that he has spent the past two years working on an anime series with Jaden Smith titled Neo Yokio. Netflix has finally released an official trailer for the show and announced that all six expisodes will be available to stream starting on September 22.
In the show, Jaden voices Kaz Kaan, a lovesick demon slayer who is tasked with the "sacred duty" of protecting "the greatest city in the world" while he also "navigates the complexities of life." The narrator of the trailer describes the city of Neo Yokio as "the most populous urban agglomeration in North America" and a "diverse labyrinth of cultural and architectural innovation at the forefront of global fashion and finance."
Throughout the series, viewers can expect appearances from Jude Law, Susan Sarandon, Jason Schwartzman, Willow Smith, Tavi Gevinson, Amandla Stenberg, Desus Nice, The Kid Mero, and John DiMaggio as well. Get a glimpse of the world of Neo Yokio in the dynamic video, above.
