Sneak Peek: Major Lazer's Animated Series on FXX

Posted at April 10th, 2015 | by Sneha | in

Major Lazer is ready to take their musical theatrics to the small screen. The trio consisting of Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire finally comes out with their animated series as part of the Animation Domination segment on FXX.
 


 
Taking almost 5 years to create, the series has been developed as an ode to the ‘80s and forms an extension of the cultural brand that Major Lazer has come to represent with their music. Made for music and cartoon fans alike, the series also boasts of an all-­‐star roster of voice-­‐overs from the likes of the Academy Award winning J.K. Simmons and guest appearances by singer Charlie XCX, Riff Raff, comedians Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari and many more.
 

The show is an artistic celebration of superhero cartoons of the Eighties infused with Jamaican culture and electronic music. Watch the preview here and get to know the ideas, cultural influences and creative processes that went down during its making. The cartoon series will premiere on Thursday, April 16th as part of FXX’s regular Animation Domination programming block.
