Hulu has just dropped a teaser trailer for Solar Opposites, giving us our first look at Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland’s new show.
Along with Ricky and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, Solar Opposites’ other co-creator is Mike McMahan, the former head writer of Rick and Morty.
The show centers around a team of four aliens who have escaped their exploding home world, only to crash-land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome.
Korvo, voiced by Justin Roiland, and Yumyulack, voiced by Sean Giambroni, only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty. However, Terry, voiced by Silicon Valley’s Thomas Middleditch, and Jesse, voiced by comedian Mary Mack, love humans and all their TV, junk food, and fun stuff.
Their mission: Protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
