The animated series inspired by the "Ark" video game about dinosaurs
During Thursday night's Game Awards, two major announcements were made for Ark the adventure game for survival against dinosaurs. Gamers can expect a full sequel to Studio Wildcard's debut title in 2017 Ark: Survival Evolved, nicknamed Ark II, while a completely new audience will learn about the prehistoric world of the game through ARK: The Animated Series - both projects with the voice of action star Vin Diesel.
Ark: Survival Evolved takes players to a beach on the shores of a mysterious island strewn with high-tech and populated by primeval creatures. Players use their wits to kill or tame dinosaurs, birds and mammals in order to win over other humans online and hopefully escape.
The animated series will explore the story of the game character Helena. A modern-day Australian biologist eager to study the wildlife of the Ark of the Island, Helena discovers that something is wrong with the island and its inhabitants.
The impressive vocal cast for Ark: TAS, revealed in the first teaser trailer, also includes Elliot Page, David Tennant, Michelle Yeoh and Jeffrey Wright, as well as Gerard Butler, Russell Crowe, Devery Jacobs, Madeleine Madden, Debora Mailman, Zahn McClarnon, Malcolm McDowell, Ragga Ragnars and Karl Urbano. The series is expected to debut in 2022.
