Enjoy an Absurd Amount of Child Endangerment in New ‘Lemony Snicket’ Trailer
We’re just over a week away from the debut of Netflix’s new Series of Unfortunate Events, but fortunately for you, the wait is getting just a bit more eventful. Here, enjoy the misery of young children in an extra Lemony trailer for your new Series.
Patrick Warburton’s Lemony Snicket leads the new trailer, urging viewers to look away from the horrors inflicted on those poor Baudelaire orphans. Netflix may be famously coy about its ratings, but somehow we imagine they’d prefer you watch all the same.
So reads Netflix’s official synopsis for the series, premiering January 13, 2017:
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and also stars Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire) and Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire). The series premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix.
As developed by Paramount TV and novel series author Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket is a pen name), Netflix’s new live-action adaptation will be directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. Apart from Jim Carrey’s somewhat unsuccessful 2004 take on the material, the Series of Unfortunate Events novels have sold countless copies and spawned a great deal of merchandise, from board games to albums.
Netflix may release more looks at A Series of Unfortunate Events in the coming week, but check out the first trailers below.
