Netflix has debuted a new teaser for A Series of Unfortunate Events. In a hilarious spin on the events of the teaser, the new trailer is narrated by Lemony Snicket himself, portrayed by Patrick Warburton.
“I’m Lemony Snicket. The cinematic tease before you is full of disturbed plots, villainous frightful deeds, and an absurd amount of child endangerment. Do you really want to sit through every horrid episode? Be a dear, and look away.”
You can watch the teaser below!
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events will debut on Netflix on Friday, January 13.
The series also stars Neil Patrick Harris and Joan Cusack among many others.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler.
