The Madagascar series launched in 2005 and quickly became a hit with audiences, going on to earn not only multiple feature-film sequels, but also a number of specials, shorts, and even a spinoff movie, with the latest entry into the franchise being the TV show Madagascar: A Little Wild. The new series is a prequel, chronicling the adventures of beloved characters in their earlier years, which has earned the above all-new trailer. Check out the fresh trailer for the series featuring Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria before Madagascar: A Little Wild lands on both streaming services Hulu and Peacock on September 7th.
