If you’re a parent, you know all about the Llama Llama books by children’s author and illustrator Anna Dewdney. These books about a lovable little Llama and his childhood adventures have inspired children and parents alike for years and now they’ve inspired Netflix to create a new animated series.
Netflix has been a staple for parents who need a quick, quiet activity for kids since the video service first began streaming in 2007. Once the streaming giant opened the doors to their own studio to produce original products, they knew they had a captive audience in parents and kids and have capitalized on that market.
With a number of original kids series like The Adventures of Puss in Boots, DinoTrux, and a successful reboot of The Magic School Bus, creating a new series based on one of the best selling children’s book series is a natural next step.
Like The Magic School Bus, Llama Llama has tapped into the Hollywood elite to help lend their voices to the cast. Jennifer Garner, best known for her roles in Alias, 13 Going on 30, and Juno, will play Mama Llama, the matriarch for the story’s main protagonist and namesake, Llama Llama.
