This June, Hulu will debut the first five episodes of a new children’s cartoon called The Bravest Knight, which will be among the first children’s television programs to feature an openly gay main character. Thirteen episodes in total were ordered.
Based on Daniel Errico’s kids book The Bravest Knight Who Ever Lived, the series features Sir Cedric (voiced by out-and-proud T.R. Knight – Grey’s Anatomy), his husband Prince Andrew (Star Trek: Discovery‘s Wilson Cruz), their 10-year-old daughter Nia (A Wrinkle in Time‘s Storm Reid), and the troll Grunt (Saturday Night Livevet Bobby Moynihan).
The story follows Nia’s journey to become a brave knight while listening to tales from her dad, Sir Cedric, of how he was once a pumpkin farmer who became a knight.
