The series stars Jonathan Groff, Mary J. Blige, Tim Blake Nelson, Gina Rodriguez, Jake Johnson, and Kesler Talbot.
The four-episode limited series is a live action/CGI animation hybrid. Inspired by the William Joyce book Ollie’s Odyssey, the series tells the story of a lost toy on an epic adventure. Ollie searches across the country for the boy who lost him, but this is a story about a boy who lost more than a best friend.
Lost Ollie comes from creator/EP Shannon Tindle (Kubo and the Two Strings, Coraline). Plus, ILM (The Mandalorian) created the CGI characters. So you know this one is going to look pretty impressive.
