Disney’s National Geographic has released the first trailer for the upcoming documentary series, “Underdogs”, which will be coming out in 2025 and will be narrated by Ryan Reynolds, who gives the teaser trailer his usual comedy genius!
“Underdogs” will tell the story of the heroic underdogs of the natural world – the good, the bad and the frankly ugly. From their hidden talents to their bold hygiene choices, unsavory courtship rituals, devious camouflage techniques and “tough love” parenting skills, Underdogs will celebrate and champion the unique and unpredictable behaviors of a little known and surprising cast of animal characters.
These overlooked superstars come in all sizes, shapes and smells. They’re the outcasts and the troublemakers, brash, unsophisticated, flatulent, incontinent and often unhinged. But they’re also warriors, team players and evil geniuses. They’re out there 24-7 giving it maximum effort, keeping the natural world in working order for all those showboating polar bears, sharks and gorillas.
Check out the teaser trailer below:
There will be ten episodes in this documentary series.
Ryan Reynolds said in a statement:
“I love nature series and I love making things my kids can actually watch. We’re already having a lot of fun trying to bring a new voice to animal docs. Wildstar has the expertise, experience and cutting-edge film tech to help us chew up that healthy National Geographic budget. We’ll deliver a show that is entertaining, surprising and will do justice to animals usually stuck as supporting cast.”
The series will be produced by Wildstar Films and Maximum Effort. Reynolds executive produces alongside George Dewey for Maximum Effort. For Wildstar, Vanessa Berlowitz, Mark Linfield and Dan Rees are executive producers; and Dave Denny is series producer.
This isn’t the only project that Ryan is working on with Disney, as he is also currently filming the second season of “Welcome To Wrexham” and the upcoming third “Deadpool” film with Hugh Jackman.
