Cape Town – Netflix has announced a star ensemble voice cast for its upcoming Ellen DeGeneres-produced Green Eggs and Ham animation series that will become available later in 2019 and released a teaser trailer.

Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Ilana Glazer, Diane Keaton, Eddie Izzard, Tracy Morgan and Keegan-Michael Key are all lending their voices, among others.

Green Eggs and Ham, based on the beloved book by Dr. Seuss, follows opposites "Guy" and "Sam" as they venture out on a road trip to save an endangered animal from a far-off zoo.

Along the way they learn to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.

DeGeneres is an executive producer and Warner Bros. Animation is producing.

"The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Plains, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss," says Netflix in its long synopsis.

"Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home.

"Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world-famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher.

"A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self-discovery.

"Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe ... despite her mother's fears that it will eat off her face (it won't).

"Michellee's walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins. Our fakakta foursome is also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who's out to get the Chickeraffe as his ultimate trophy."
