NETFLIX DEVELOPING GREEK MYTHOLOGY ANIME SERIES GODS & HEROES
Netflix has announced it’s developing an original Greek Mythology-based anime series called Gods & Heroes.
The streaming giant has officially ordered eight episodes of the show, which tells the story of “a young man who, cast aside by his people, learns that he is the illegitimate son of Zeus. He alone can save both Heaven and Earth but to do so he must survive the vengeful wrath of a goddess who wants him dead and the monstrous forces of evil she aligns against him.”
The show will include the vocal talents of Jason O’Mara, Mamie Gummer, Derek Phillips, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jessica Henwick, Melina Kanakaredes, Claudia Christian and Elias Toufexis. Charley and Vlas Parlapanides, who worked on Immortals and Death Note, will serve as the show’s creators, writers, and executive producers. Castlevania’s Powerhouse Animation will be the studio behind Gods & Heroes. A poster for the show can be seen below.
“In Gods & Heroes, we wanted to tell a wholly original story set in the beloved world of Greek mythology. We are thankful for such an amazing cast and for such great creative partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation, who continue to push the envelope and expand the anime genre in a manner we had only dreamed of,” said Vlas and Charley Parlapanides.
“The traditions of global mythology and folklore are fertile ground for anime projects and we are excited to explore the epic settings and characters of Greek mythology in our new series, Gods & Heroes,” said John Derderian, Netflix’s director of anime. “Charley and Vlas have an outstanding track record of telling gripping stories set in fantastical worlds and we are thrilled to bring their unique vision for the Gods of Mount Olympus to Netflix members around the world.”
