“I only wanna be a knight to help people in need,” the semi-valiant Patrick says, “because the king is a terrible ruler.” Sounds innocent enough. But this is a king who smiles as he asserts, “We need a public execution! You go down to the dungeon for me and pick out a real all-star.”
Here is the first full trailer for Crossing Swords, Hulu’s new stop-motion adult toon created and written by Robot Chicken EPs John Harvatine IV and Tom Root. Check it out above.
Directed by Harvatine, Crossing Swords follows Patrick (Nicholas Hoult), a good-hearted peasant who lands a coveted squire position at the royal castle. But his dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when he learns his beloved kingdom is run by a hornet’s nest of horny monarchs, crooks and charlatans. Even worse, Patrick’s valor made him the black sheep in his family, and now his criminal siblings have returned to make his life hell.
War, murder, full frontal nudity — who knew brightly colored peg people led such exciting lives?
The voice cast also includes Adam Ray, Tara Strong, Tony Hale, Luke Evans, Alanna Ubach, Adam Pally, Yvette Nicole Brown, Maya Erskine, Wendi McClendon-Covey and Robot Chicken‘s Seth Green and Breckin Meyer.
All 10 episodes of Crossing Swords Season 1 will bow Friday on Hulu.
