Netflix began streaming a trailer for its upcoming Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas special on Friday. The trailer reveals that the cast will include Jamie Foxx, Rashida Jones, Angélique Kidjo, Ray Wise, Rowan Blanchard, and Julian Barratt.
The special will premiere on Netflix on December 7.
The original six-episode animated series premiered on Netflix on September 22, 2017.
