The first trailer for Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal, the upcoming new show from Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky, immediately throws us into the caveman-versus-mammoth-versus-dinosaur action.
Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal (yes, that’s the full title) centers around a caveman who befriends a dinosaur on the brink of extinction. They bond through a shared need to survive, and the trailer makes it clear that in this harsh, prehistoric world, there are many, many threats. Just in the trailer alone we get mammoths, water snakes, giant spiders, pterodactyls, and some fearsome humanoid creature wearing a dinosaur skull. It’s a tough world out there for one lone caveman — having a dinosaur BFF is sure to make things easier.
Sure, it’s not historically accurate, but it does look awesome.
The show will be entirely without dialogue, focusing instead on the action, music, and animation. Already, the trailer shows a gorgeously animated prehistoric world and harrowing action sequences.
Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal premieres on Adult Swim on Oct. 7.
