Imagine growing up with television shows tailor-made for you. Although the current influx of great TV shows makes that more realistic than ever, most of us grew up watching Sesame Street alongside everyone else. For James, however, that isn’t the case.
Brigsby Bear is about a children’s TV show produced just for James (Kyle Mooney). When the show abruptly ends, James’s life changes forever, and he sets out to finish the story himself while coping with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about. The new teaser trailer is light on the dialogue and heavy on the electronic soundtrack and strange visuals. Scenes of James exploring what looks like abandoned buildings are intercut with vintage-looking scenes from his childhood show.
Even though the description and trailer seem to be keeping the plot purposely vague, one glance at the cast list will get you excited. Kyle Mooney is joined by Claire Danes, Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh and more.
Set to premiere in select theaters on July 28, watch the teaser trailer for yourself below.
