'Cleopatra In Space': Release date, plot, voice cast and all you need to know about the animated Peacock show
A teenage Cleopatra is transported 30,000 years into the future and discovers she is the prophesied savior of the future world
If you're a fan of the famed Egyptian queen Cleopatra, here's something for you. Alright, we'll be honest. If you're a fan of Cleopatra, but have always wanted to see her as a 15-year-old animated figure running around in space, then this is for you. 'Cleopatra In Space' is a funny light-hearted animated series that apparently is the "untold" story of Cleopatra's teenage years. It's true, we have scant information about the actual queen, but it does seem a far jump to imagine her having high-school issues and then magically teleporting herself to space. But, you never know.
So on that note, here's something to bid goodbye to those blues. Here's what we know about the Peacock show 'Cleopatra In Space'.
'Cleopatra In Space' will launch on July 15 on Peacock.
Based on the graphic novel by Mike Maihack, the series revolves around princess Cleopatra of ancient Egypt. The official synopsis reads: "A teenage Cleopatra is transported 30,000 years into the future and discovers she is the prophesied savior of the future world." She is destined to defeat the evil space tyrant Octavian. In the process, she ends up attending the futuristic intergalactic academy named P.Y.R.A.M.I.D to obtain the proper training and skills to fulfill her role. She is said to be reckless and impulsive, but has a good heart and wants peace. She has also gained strange and powerful powers from her time-travel, which manifests in pink and can be used to drain energy and project it into energy waves and beams. Not quite the Cleopatra you studied about, is she?
