Netflix ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Comes Together in New Motion Poster
If all the teen sex on display through the original Wet Hot American Summer wasn’t enough to fondle your sweaters, imagine Camp Firewood at the start of the season. Or rather, listen in by Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’s new Netflix motion poster. Headphones may be advised.
Piggybacking off the earlier key art, the new Netflix motion poster for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp features the entire star-studded cast in a tug-of-war, only one that sounds a good deal like … well, a very different kind of tug-of-war. Mind your fellow campers, and have a listen in above.
Acting as a prequel to the 2001 cult classic, First Day of Camp returns the expansive cast of Ant-Man star Paul Rudd, Guardians of the Galaxy voice Bradley Cooper, Parks and Recreation lead Amy Poehler, The Hunger Games player Elizabeth Banks, Marry Me star Ken Marino, Law and Order: SVU legend Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, SNL alum Molly Shannon, Frasier star David Hyde Pierce, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Ian Black, 30 Rock supporting player Judah Friedlander, Zak Orth, and Marguerite Moreau, and Michael Showalter.
New recruits to Camp Firewood include Michael Cera, Weird Al, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, In A World star Lake Bell, The Interview breakout Randall Park, Glee star Jayma Mays, Michaela Watkins, Rob Huebel, The Good Wife star Josh Charles, Richard Schiff, Paul Scheer and director David Wain himself.
The 8-episode series will act as a prequel to the original (despite actors being 14 years older), taking place on the First Day of Camp, as opposed to the 2001 film’s last. Wain and Showalter will also write and direct the new 8-episode follow-up, all episodes going online July 31.
Clean yourself off, return to Camp Firewood by the above and below teasers, and count down the days to Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp on July 31.
