WATCH: Trailer lands for Genndy Tartakovsky’s new animated series Primal

August 29th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Samurai Jack and (original) Clone Wars creator Genndy Tartakovsky is back with an all-new animated ten-part series for Adult Swim and it looks beautiful and intense in similar measure.

Primal tells the story of a caveman living in a savage world of monsters and dinosaurs just fighting to survive. It has no dialogue and Tartakovsky had this t say: “Forget about the violence and stuff, there’s plenty of that to go around. It’s these serious themes. The biggest thing is that we trust the audience. It’s 10 episodes, no dialogue, and some of it’s pretty intense, so we are going to rely on you the audience to understand it and to pay attention.”

Sounds just about perfect. Could us in.

Primal features a caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.

All 10 episodes will air across five nights in a row on Adult Swim, starting on October 7 and running through October 11

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
