You may ask, if you haven’t seen it, ‘What the heck is Centaurworld?’ And you may ask, if you have seen it, ‘What the heck is Centaurworld?’ Because seriously, what the heck IS Centaurworld?
Whatever it is, it’s amazing and we are so very glad it exists. It’s full of joy, songs, wonder, singing, hilarity, more songs, color, and did we mention that there are some songs in it?
The second season of Centaurworld dropped today, and we are so here for the smiles it will bring to our faces.
Created by musical artist Megan Dong, who is also known for her work on Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, and How to Train Your Dragon 2, Centaurworld is a Netflix-exclusive series that follows the story of Horse, (she’s a horse) and her friend Rider. In season 1 of this
animated musical-comedy, a warhorse, Horse, voiced by Kimiko Glenn, takes a fall and wakes to find herself in a strange, colorful new land full of wacky creatures. She realizes that she has lost her rider, Rider, voiced by Jessie Mueller, and sets out to find her. Horse meets Wammawink and her gang, and they help her on her journey to get back to her own world and reunite with Rider. This all sounds like one of those lovely straightforward stories that we’ve all seen before, and it is, but what makes it so different and wonderful are the hilarious, perfectly placed lines from the voice cast, the relationships that grow between Horse and her new friends, and especially, the unique musical numbers, both silly and heartwarming, that help to tell the story throughout the series.
Season 2 is expected to have lots more music and song, absurd characters and adventures, and some very sad news for Horse as she discovers that Rider has a new horse, called Becky Apples, cue a hilarious Becky Apples song, no doubt!
Centaurworld was made for kids, it’s rated PG, but does have some adult themes, and grown-ups will love it just as much – we do! So it’s a great family show to watch together.
