Stunning Animation Revealed In ‘The Liberator’ Trailer From Netflix

Netflix has given us some of the best animated series and movies of the last few years. Every now and then, I see a trailer that just makes my jaw drop visually. That’s what happened when I saw the first trailer for The Liberator. Perfect for Veteran’s Day, this four episode event also premieres on November 11th.

See the trailer:

The events of the series are based on a true story. In the synopsis from Netflix, it says: “On September 9th 1943, over three thousand naval vessels and 150,000 troops began Operation Avalanche, the Allied invasion of Italy… In an attempt to achieve tactical surprise, the allies forgo naval and air bombardment. But the invasion surprised no one and was met by fierce German resistance. By the second day the Allies had committed all of their reinforcements and by the end of the fourth day the operation teetered on the brink of failure. The German Army, sensing an American defeat, rushed over 40,000 reinforcements to Salerno to drive the allies into the sea. Faced with potential annihilation the Allied high command considered the unthinkable. Evacuation. In the midst of this debate a commander of a National Guard regiment from Oklahoma made this announcement: ‘Now’s not the time to leave. Now’s the time for some hard fighting.’ This is the story of those men. Men known as the Thunderbirds.”

The story looks very interesting, but I feel like it is just so visually striking. There could be no dialogue at all, and I would still be glued to my screen.

The Liberator comes from creator, writer and showrunner Jeb Stuart. Alex Kershaw will also co-produce. The list of executive producers includes Unique Features EPs: Bob Shaye, Michael Lynne (Lord of the Rings) and Sarah Victor from Unique Features. L.C. Crowley, Grzegorz Jonkajtys, Brandon Barr, and Mark Apen from Triscope Studios. Barry Jossen is also on board from A&E Studios. Grzegorz Jonkajtys (Sin City, Pan’s Labyrinth) serves as director.
