I’m not sure how this one slipped by me, but when I was at the theater this weekend watching Fantastical Beasts and Where to Find Them, there was new trailer for the Netflix series A Series of Unfortunate Events.
The new series is based on the books by Lemony Snicket and follows the Baudelaire orphans as they try to escape the grasp of their treacherous, conniving relative Count Olaf.
Fans are hoping that, unlike the previous 2004 movie, the series will stay true to the books and follow through on the complete series.
The series stars Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes and Presley Smith as the Baudelaire children, Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snickett and Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf. Other names include Joan Cusack, Catherine O’Hara, Aasif Mandvi, Don Johnson, and Alfre Woodard. Netflix has the series scheduled for release on January 13th.
