Netflix reveals super star-studded cast for "Green Eggs and Ham" animated series

Netflix apparently really loves green eggs and ham. The streaming service released a trailer for a 13-episode animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss' beloved book, "Green Eggs and Ham." The series, produced by Ellen DeGeneres, will debut this fall — and it features the voices of a star-studded cast. 

Adam Devine will be the voice of Sam I Am and Michael Douglas will be the voice of Guy Am I. The two unlikely friends go on an adventure to try to save an endangered animal called a "Chickeraffe" from a zoo, learning about hope, friendship and of course, green eggs and ham along the way. The duo also encounter a ton of other characters during their journey, voiced by Diane Keaton, Ilana Glazer, Eddie Izzard, Tracy Morgan, Keegan-Michael Key, Daveed Diggs, John Turturro, Jeffrey Wright and Jillian Bell.

"Do you like green eggs and ham? I made it a TV show, because I can. I made it with my friend Diane," DeGeneres tweeted Tuesday. 

After initially announcing "Green Eggs and Ham" in 2015, Netflix dropped the teaser for the series Tuesday. The press release describes the show as a "postmodern 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss."
