Watch a Trailer for Netflix's 'Neo Yokio' Anime Series, Starring Jaden Smith, Desus & Mero and More
Starring Jaden Smith, Jude Law, Desus & Mero and more
Set in a slightly-dystopian future city that marries the best of Tokyo and New York, the show centers on the romantic and supernatural trials and tribulations of adolescent “magistocrat,” Kaz Kaan (portrayed by Jaden Smith) as he wades through heartbreak and demons in a city once liberated by elders of his superpowered bloodline. It’s an ode to classic anime series, according to a press release, and looks the part. The trailer also features appearances from co-stars Jude Law, Susan Sarandon and Joel Martinez (better known to most as The Kid Mero, of VICELAND’s Desus & Mero,) with Willow Smith, Steve Buscemi and others slated to make cameos and fill out the cast.
Neo Yokio was created by Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig and is a collaborative production between Production IG and Studio Deen. Watch the trailer up top and tune into to Netflix for the big reveal later this month.
