There’s a lot we don’t know about ancient Egyptians, but a new animated series dares to wonder: What would Cleopatra have been like if she’d been able to time travel? Cleopatra in Space, based on Mike Maihack’s graphic novels, imagines the historic figure as a sassy teen who happens to be “the savior of the galaxy.”
DreamWorks TV just dropped the first trailer, featuring a haughty cat guardian, at least one toilet joke, sinister robots, elaborate handshakes, friendly and not-so-friendly aliens, space battles, and more—all aimed at kids, but the show looks like a fun ride for geeky grown-ups too.
Cleopatra in Space hits Peacock on April 15.
