Fortunately, an exciting new teaser is out…
The new trailer, Meet Count Olaf, gives us a glimpse of the upcoming Netflix TV eight-episode series based on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events books.
As you have likely heard by now, the villainous Count Olaf, will be played by Neil Patrick Harris. The trailer is a very dark take on the story and character. In the books, the count attempts to steal the children’s inheritance, and in the trailer, the count comes across even more terrifying and creepy.
The villain was also played by Jim Carrey who acted in the movie version, which was released in 2004 and grossed more than $200 million.
And while we have to wait until January 13th for the series to air on Netflix, you can watch the trailer now and meet the Count for yourself.
