DreamWorks, renowned for producing top-tier animated projects, has been a driving force behind some of the most beloved and successful franchises in the genre, including Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, and Shrek. While the studio is celebrated for crafting imaginative and captivating animated worlds spanning various genres like comedy, adventure, drama, and action, the realm of horror has remained largely unexplored in their repertoire. This Halloween season, DreamWorks is set to venture into this new territory and fulfill the desires of fans with the release of “Fright Krewe.”
Conceived by the creative minds of Eli Roth and James Frey, this all-new animated series unfolds in the atmospheric setting of New Orleans. The narrative centers around a group of teenagers who unwittingly awaken an ancient malevolent spirit, unleashing its dark powers. Endowed with magical abilities and entrusted by the spirit of a voodoo queen to fulfill a prophecy, this eclectic group, referred to as the “krewe,” must rally together to safeguard their hometown from a host of sinister entities, including demons, vampires, and other malevolent spirits. However, before they can confront these supernatural threats, they must first solidify their bonds of friendship.
While the storyline of “Fright Krewe” may echo classic adventure tales in animation, it is the visual and narrative elements that promise to distinguish this series from its peers in the genre. DreamWorks, known for producing family-friendly content with underlying mature themes, such as in “Kung Fu Panda” and “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,” takes a bold step forward with Roth and Frey at the helm. They aim to position “Fright Krewe” as an entry point into the world of horror, potentially paving the way for future generations of horror enthusiasts. The promotional art for the series hints at chilling and suspenseful moments, balanced with a perspective that resonates with older children, making this animated horror adventure a unique and groundbreaking addition to the genre.
Scheduled for release this October, just in time for Halloween, “Fright Krewe” is poised to offer audiences a thrilling and unforgettable viewing experience.
