There’s a new animated original series coming to Hulu in JuneZ
The Bravest Knight will air on the streaming service, a new division of The Walt Disney Company.
The show is based on a popular children’s book by Daniel Errico: The Bravest Knight Who Ever Lived. It chronicles a young pumpkin farmer’s adventure as he attempts to become the bravest knight who ever lived.
The Bravest Knight is breaking boundaries, featuring a household with two dads (Sir Cedric and Prince Andrew), making it one of the first children’s television series with an openly gay main character.
Sir Cedric shares his story with his adopted 10-year-old daughter Nia, on how he transformed from day-time farmer to full-fledged knight.
Nia, who is training to become a brave knight herself, learns important values such as honor, justice and compassion; proving that knighthood is much more than slaying dragons.
