Neo Yokio Animated Series Teases Christmas Special for December 7

posted on by Karen Ressler
Original 6-episode series premiered on Netflix last year

The official Twitter account for the animated series Neo Yokio posted a teaser for a Christmas special titled Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas on Tuesday. The teaser ends with a note that it will be on Netflix on December 7.

The Tweet was in response to another Tweet from the official Toblerone Twitter account. The post shows a screenshot of the series protagonist Kaz Kaan and his giant Toblerone, with "More Neo Yokio?" written on the Toblerone.

The original six-episode animated series premiered on Netflix on September 22, 2017. Vampire Weekend band vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig helmed the series, and Nick Weidenfeld is serving as writer and executive producer. Production I.G and Studio DEEN provided some storyboards for the series, and South Korean studio MOI worked on the animation.

The story takes place in the North American city Neo Yokio. Kaz Kaan is from a family of “magistocrats” – pink-haired demon slayers who once liberated the city – but his main concerns are shopping for luxury fashion, bemoaning his ex-girlfriend, and defeating his rival for the title of Neo Yokio's most eligible bachelor.

The series stars Jaden Smith, Susan Sarandon, Jude Law, Tavi Gevinson, Jason Schwartzman, Desus & Mero, Richard Ayoade, Ike Barinholtz, Steve Buscemi, Alexa Chung, Stephen Fry, Katy Mixon, Annet Mahendru, Kiernan Shipka, Willow Smith, and Amanda Stenberg.

Thanks to Rukiia for the news tip.
