Netflix has released a new trailer for their upcoming new series Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. We get a full dosage of Neil Patrick Harris’s interpretation of Count Olaf all throughout the trailer, especially in all of Olaf’s various disguises. You also get a hint of the tone of the series, which is a lot more entrenched in dark comedy than what I remember the 2004 movie having.
The official synopsis is below:
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, 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.
Take a look at the trailer below and let us know your thoughts.
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events will premiere worldwide on Netflix on January 13, 2017.
