“Over the hills and far away, Teletubbies come to play.”
Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are back in a new “Teletubbies” reboot premiering November on Netflix — and TODAY has your exclusive first look at the trailer.
Actor Tituss Burgess narrates the latest iteration, which features new Sun Babies and “wonder-filled adventures.” The trailer begins with the four colorful Teletubbbies strolling through the green hills and waving hello.
“Teletubbies love tubby custard. Teletubbies love dancing,” Burgess says in the clip, as the Teletubbies prance around and are seen inside their Tubbytronic Superdome.
“Teletubbies love the Tiddlytubbies and the Teletubbies love each other very much,” the voiceover continues before each Teletubby is introduced.
The adorable trailer ends with a close up of one of the show’s Sun Baby.
The “Teletubbies” reboot was first announced in September. According to the press release, the preschool series will follow the Teletubbies as they learn and grow in the 21st century. Each of the 12 episodes will also include a new and original “Tummy Tales” song.
Rachelle Beinart, Rebecca Hyland, Nick Chee Ping Kellington and Jeremiah Krage are the new Teletubbies performers. “Tummy Tales” will be hosted by Julia Pulo. “Tummy Tales” will be hosted by Julia Pulo.
