Fans of the adorable Llama Llama books by author and illustrator Anna Dewdney, it's time to rejoice! Netflix Family has announced that an animated new show based on the beloved series will begin streaming on January 26. That alone is exciting, but wait, it gets even better: A celeb mom we can't help but adore is the voice behind Mama Llama ... Jennifer Garner!
And Garner is part of a top-tier team: The show's creators include include Oscar-winning director Rob Minkoff (The Lion King), director Saul Blinkoff (Doc McStuffins), showrunner Joe Purdy, art director Ruben Aquino (Frozen) and Emmy-winning producers Jane Startz and Andy Heyward. Amazing.
According to a Deadline.com, "The show tells heart-warming tales about childhood moments and adventures, as well as the special connections between lead character Llama, his family and best friends.
