Kanye West and Kid Cudi are following up their collaborative 2018 album KIDS SEE GHOSTS, but not with another album, instead the Hip Hop icons will team with legendary Japanese visual artist Takashi Murakami, to make an animated series following the adventure of Kanye Bear and Kid Fox.
Fans got their first look at what is a visually stunning, albeit slightly confusing first trailer that dropped yesterday. West and Cudi are set to voice both characters, and KIDS SEE GHOSTS is one of their first forays into animation.
The trailer, posted on KIDS SEE GHOSTS‘ Youtube page, follows Kanye Bear, created by West and Murakami in the early 2000’s, and Kid Fox, a new character created by Cudi and Murakami, who are sucked into a vortex that introduces them to some type of a transforming tree/jet/warrior woman and what appears to be a science fiction city, precariously perched over a rainbow waterfall.
The trailer features Murakami’s signature blend of Japanese Manga and Anime inspired visuals, resulting in a trippy-Nintendo look to the series. Kanye Bear and Kid Fox even look like they are straight out of Animal Crossing.
The trailer for KIDS SEE GHOSTS, is essentially the only information on the series at the moment, aside from brief tweets from Cudi and West. However, the KIDS SEE GHOSTS album was a surprise success in 2018, and the collaborative powers between these artists are strong, so fans no doubt have high hopes for this new series.
So, what do you all think about this Kanye’s potential hit series guys? Do you all wanted to watch it?
