On Thursday, during the Dreamworks Animation TV Studio presentation at the Annecy festival, the studio announced a new original Netflix series, Kipo & the Age of Wonderbeasts, from executive producers Radford Sechrist and Bill Wolkoff, and also released a first-look teaser and title for its previously announced Fast & Furious series, also for Netflix.

Here are details on both series:

Kipo & the Age of Wonderbeasts

Executive produced and created by Radford Sechrist (story artist, Penguins of Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon 2) and executive produced and developed for TV by Bill Wolkoff (Once Upon a Time), the series follows a young girl named Kipo who’s lived her entire life in an underground burrow.

Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer on She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) voices Kipo.
We meet her as she is thrust into an adventure on the surface, where she joins a ragtag group of survivors as they embark on a journey through a fantastical post-apocalyptic Earth where everything trying to kill them is downright adorable.

Kipo & the Age of Wonderbeasts will premiere on Netflix in 2020.

Fast & Furious: Spy Racers

Set to debut on Netflix later this year, Fast & Furious: Spy Racers will have Tim Hedrick (story editor/writer, Dreamworks Voltron Legendary Defender) and Bret Haaland (executive producer, All Hail King Julien) as showrunners. They will executive produce alongside Vin Diesel and Chris Morgan. The project was first announced in April 2018.

Spy Racers will expand the action-packed franchise by focusing on teenager Tony Toretto, who follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom after he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a crime organization.
