“At age four I attempted my first art project by devouring a 10 pack of crayons thus turning my diaper into a Jackson Pollack. I enjoy floundering about & painting pretty pictures, & I still eat crayons now & again just to remind myself of my roots & how I ended up like this. Some day I hope not to be famous.”

Stock up on rice and iron, because Pulgasari is back! Netflix announced today that the streaming service will revive the famous North Korean kaiju for a new thirteen-episode animated series titled Pulgasari: The Legendary Adventures.

Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said:

With the recent worldwide success of the smash hit comedy ‘The Interview’, we at Netflix think the world is ready for another dose of North Korean craziness. ‘Pulgasari’ is among the great North Korean films, and ‘The Legendary Adventures’ will honor its legacy. Each episode is an exciting fantasy-adventure, which makes watching ‘Pulgasari’ an event the whole family will enjoy.”

Netflix will drop all thirteen episodes on the 22nd of August. Voice talent for the series is yet to be announced. Supreme Leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un will act as executive producer, continuing his father’s monster movie legacy.
