[Editor’s note: Shortly after running the below story, Netflix representatives confirmed the above trailer is fan-made and thus not officially connected to the upcoming series.]
Netflix is bringing the beloved dark children’s book series, “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” to life in an upcoming series. The story of orphans Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire and their misadventures was first seen in the 2004 film adaptation, which combined the first three books and starred Jim Carrey.
In the new teaser, brilliantly titled “An Unfortunate Teaser,” creepy Victorian music and shadows show a room filled with the Baudelaire’s signatures: a hair ribbon for inventor Violet, a book and glasses for researcher Klaus, and leftover food for chef Sunny. Other books and creepy bugs lying around the room allude to different points in the series. Most importantly, the infamous eye and shadow of diabolical Count Olaf tie the whole thing together.
Check out the new teaser above.
