Undone Rosa Salazar Amazon Prime Video Series

Amazon Prime Video is going to release an upcoming animated series, and this time it’ll be the first original adult animated series for the streaming service. Undone stars Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel) and features techniques like rotoscoping that’s similar to movies like A Scanner Darkly. (The rotoscoping team behind the movie is working on this.) The Amazon Original series has a new teaser trailer, and it shows off the crazy and surreal aesthetic that is possible with the style.

The series will be making an appearance at ATX TV Festival in Austin, TX, where audiences will get to see the first two episodes on Saturday, June 8.

The series is created by Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman) and follows a young woman’s journey as she unlocks her past and solves the mystery of her father’s death.

Rotoscoping has been used in films, but this marks a first for episodic television. The animation is directed by Hisko Hulsing (Montage of Heck), and the team uses all sorts of mediums like oil painting on canvas to render the backgrounds. Submarine, the Amsterdam-based animation studio, is working on the animation and comprises of artists and painters from all around Europe. The rotoscoping team behind A Scanner Darkly, Austin-based Minnow Mountain (Tower), is working on this with co-producer Craig Staggs leading.

Synopsis: Alma Winograd-Diaz (Rosa Salazar, Alita: Battle Angel) takes her mundane life one day at a time until a near fatal accident induces visions of her late-father, Jacob. Through these persistent visions he urges her to tap into a mysterious ability that allows her to travel through space and time with the hopes of preventing his untimely death. This quest challenges Alma’s relationships and brings into question her mental wellbeing with those closest to her.

The series also stars Angelique Cabral, Constance Marie, Siddarth Dhananjay and Daveed Diggs. John Corbett, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Sheila Vand and Tyler Posey guest stars as well.

Undone will premiere later in 2019 on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
