Dreamworks has released the official trailer for Abominable and the Invisible City, a new, animated series centering on their take on the Abominable Snowman, which is coming to Hulu and Peacock in October. The project was announced earlier this year as part of a broader slate of animated programming, which included an upcoming spinoff from the film Megamind, and a second season for Babble Pop!. The original film generated $188 million against a reported budget of $75 million, which was enough to keep Universal and Dreamworks interested in the franchise, even if they didn't leap headfirst into a new theatrical follow-up in the middle of the pandemic.
The new series is looking to bring other magical creatures into the fold, expanding out the Abominable world in a way that can generate more seasons of the show and potentially more spinoffs. Spirit: Riding Free's Jim Schumann and Katherine Nolfi serve as executive produce the series while Tiffany Lo and Ethel Lung are the series' story editors. The core cast of characters is made up of recurring characters from the movie.
You can see the trailer below.
Here's the official synopsis for the series:
