At a point it was obvious that the beautifully-styled and difficult Cuphead was making it way to Netflix, we just got a leak at what the animated show will look and sound like when it finally comes.
Relative newcomer Tru Valentino is set to voice Cuphead himself, while brother Mugman will be voiced by Frank Todaro, who you might recognize as Starscream in a number of Transformers series.

The clip above suggests the show — of which there will be 11 episodes of 10 minutes each — has a slightly cleaner style than the Cuphead game, while still retaining that old-school cartoon charm.
As executive producer CJ Kettler says, “Reimagining the Fleischer style with these incredibly relatable siblings is gonna be pretty fresh and new.” Still no word on when the series will land, though, although a Q&A with the team for the 2020 Annecy International Animated Film Festival revealed it will be “soon.”
But truth is, we don’t know exactly how long the soon will be.
