All Hail King Julien is an American computer-animated television series. It stars characters from the DreamWorks Animation animated film Madagascar. It stars the lemur King Julien (Danny Jacobs) from the Madagascar franchise, which takes place in Madagascar, before the events of the first film.[2] The series debuted on December 19, 2014 on Netflix when the first five 22-minute episodes were released.[1] Season 2 was released on Netflix on October 16, 2015.[3]

Plot[edit]

The plot of the new Netflix Original Series takes place before the 2005 Madagascar film.

When King Julien XII (also known as Uncle King Julien), a very strict and cowardly ring-tailed lemur who forced the kingdom to be quiet in order to avoid being attacked by fossa (spelled and pronounced as "foosa"), is foretold by Masikura that he will be eaten by the foosa, he hands down his kingship to his nephew King Julien XIII, a selfish, notorious party animal, and leaves him with an entire kingdom of lemurs to lead on his own. While Uncle King Julien is gone the new King Julien gets into various troubles. All the while, his devious uncle returns and tries to get rid of his nephew to reclaim the throne.

Production[edit]

The series was announced in March 2014 as part of an agreement between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation.[6] The series is based on the characters from the 2005 film Madagascar, but is a prequel, set prior to the events of the film series.[7] Danny Jacobs, Andy Richter, Kevin Michael Richardson reprised their roles from The Penguins of Madagascar TV series, while Henry Winkler and India de Beaufort joined the cast.[8]

Reception[edit]

After the initial release of the first five episodes, Robert Lloyd of Los Angeles Times wrote in his review that the series "succeeds on matters of style, script, timing and performance, not the number of individual hairs rendered in a patch of fur. And Julien delivers on all the important accounts."[9]
