Kevin Smith offers an update on the GREEN HORNET animated series

In 2020 it was announced that Kevin Smith was developing a Green Hornet cartoon series. It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on the project, but Smith recently offered some new details

He is developing the show with WildBrain and will be aimed at a family audience. It was previously revealed that the series will be set in the modern era, “following the adventures of a reimagined Green Hornet and Kato – now the adult son of the original Green Hornet and daughter of the original Kato – as they work together to fight crime in Century City . It will also feature the Green Hornet’s ultra-high-tech car, Black Beauty.”

In a recent episode of Smith’s Fatman Beyond podcast, Smith shared some insight into what’s going on with the series and raved about the animation, saying it’s “phenomenal” and that it’s “like that Pixar sh*t.” He said:

“I don’t know if we can say who we’re working for, but the production company announced it a long time ago. We’ve been working with the folks at WildBrain to make 10 episodes of a children’s cartoon Green Hornet. This is where I used to work, Marc. It is fun! The animation is amazing. It’s like that Pixar s***. It’s like they took a 2D design and blew it up. We were working on it. We can “Tell who it’s possible. But, once we turn in our scripts at the end of March or whatever? Then, we’ll know if the people who paid for the scripts want to go ahead with the show.”

When previously talking about the show’s animation style, Smith compared it Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse saying:

“But it’s so gorgeous and kid-friendly. Like it’s a family show. So it’s for the 8-12 group or the family or something. And it’s very inspired by Into the Spider-Verse, too. Deep And actually, like we’re not doing a score, we’re doing a needle in terms of the soundtrack. So it’s not going to be like, ‘Oh, there’s this Green Hornet score.’ We’re going to grab the music, the current music, the kind of give it a certain charm. But also, it’s very … yeah, it takes a lot of elements from Into the Spider-Verse. And the look of it is not … As you look at it, you’re like, ‘Oh, I can see that and there”. Yes, I like this movie.”

It will be interesting to see how it turns out if it does.

The green sponge created as a radio series created by George W. Trendle set in the 1930s, it tells the story of Britt Reid, the wealthy owner and publisher of the fictional newspaper The Daily Sentinel. By day, Reed oversees his newspaper’s reports on crime and injustice, but by night, he dons his green mask and travels the city with his sidekick Cato to fight criminals and villains head-on.
