PSA: "Son of Zorn" Begins Today
- Written by Ben
"He-Man vs. Roger Rabbit" is the most basic way I can describe the concept for Son of Zorn. Starring Johnny Pemberton (21 Jump Street, Ant-Man) as the titular son, Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Suburgatory), Tim Meadows (Mean Girls, Suburgatory) and Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, Last Man on Earth) as Zorn, the first episode of this semi-animated FOX series follows the animated barbarian Zorn as he leaves his war-torn village in Zephyria to reconnect with his live-action son Alan aka Alangulon.
It's the classic fish-out-of-water story of a barbarian in the modern day. Creators Phil Lord and Chris Miller are no strangers to animation recently bringing us the Lego Movie, nor are they opposed to off-the-wall concepts, most recently Will Forte's Last Man on Earth, and Son of Zorn looks set to be a combination of the best of both worlds.
