Netflix has released the full trailer for its “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” series, which will run for eight episodes beginning on 13th January 2017.
In this trailer we see more of the “legendary” actor Neil Patrick Harris as Olaf (see what I did there). This seems to be more aimed at children and it seems like it could be fun.
Neil Patrick Harris is a great comedic actor as we have seen as Barney Stinson on “How I Met Your Mother“.
Here’s the official synopsis for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events:
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.
