Solar Opposites Preview Has Us Thinking Korvo's Not A Big Fan of Earth

Leave it to Rick and Morty duo Justin Roiland and Mike McMahn to find a very cool and unique way to promote their upcoming animated sci-fi/comedy series Solar Opposites. With their flight coordinates scheduling them to land on Hulu on May 8th, director/actor/geek ambassador Kevin Smith is giving our new friends from the planet Shlorp the opportunity to reach out to the masses via a Twitter Q & A. That 's right, Korvo (Roiland), Terry (Thomas Middleditch), Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone), and Jesse (Mary Mack) took time out of their busy days getting to know Earth (before they terraform it) to answer questions from Smith as well as the Twitterverse.

Along with a ton of alien knowledge, the foursome also brought along a preview clip that clearly demonstrates the difference between those who are kinda liking earth (Team Terry) and those who find it a waste of existence (Team Korvo). Along the way, it also made us nauseous over the thought of "stump licking" (yup, you'll see).

In Roiland and McMahn's adult animated series, a team of four aliens who escape their exploding homeworld only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food, and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living supercomputer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them, and terraform the Earth. Here's a look at the official trailer for Solar Opposites, featuring an all-star line-up of voice actors, including Roiland, Giambrone, Middleditch, Mack, Alan Tudyk, Alfred Molina, Christina Hendricks, Jason Mantzoukas, Liam Cunningham, Rainn Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, and more.
