In the test scene in this video, Kenolta Lyef, a street-talking, pot-bellied, alcoholic knight on the animal-populated planet of Planimus, has been arrested for the assassination of President Kaprakoza, a goat. He is accused of rigging a giant globe, the planet’s Globe of Peace, and rolling it over the president, flattening him. However, his monogrammed flask is discovered at the scene of the crime. The ruthless police pig force detains Kenolta and attempts to get a confession out of him, by any means necessary.
This scene is from Space Rabbit - a puppet sci-fi TV show directed by filmmaker and film critic Matt Zoller Seitz. In Space Rabbit a group of puppet animals attempt to free their planet from a dictator. In production now. Release in 2018.
