Get a first look — and find out the full voice cast! — for this new adult animated project from the mind of Grammy-winning rapper and singer Kid Cudi. Based on his upcoming album of the same name, Entergalactic follows a young man on his journey to discover love.
Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi (previously announced) voices Jabari: A charming, creative visionary with a splash of goofball, Jabari is effortlessly cool. Dressed head-to-toe in the holiest of streetwear grails, Jabari is just one of those kids you can’t help but love. At a first time crossroads of career success and the perfect apartment, he is about to find the final piece of adulthood: true love.
Jessica Williams (Love Life, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3) as Meadow: An on-the-rise photographer who is Jabari’s new neighbor, Meadow is not only the coolest girl at the party, she’s the realest.
Timothée Chalamet (Dune, Call Me by Your Name) as Jimmy: Jimmy is Jabari’s best friend and… weed dealer, though with the new drug laws he’s now focusing on crypto and new inventions. An oxymoronic, laid back conspiracy theorist, Jimmy is never without a blunt and a book.
Ty Dolla $ign as Ky: Jabari’s irreverent, and at times, inappropriate road dog. Ky is always there for Jabari, even though his support can sometimes come in interesting packages.
Laura Harrier (Hollywood, BlacKkKlansman) as Carmen: Jabari’s recent ex-girlfriend. Stylish and confident, Carmen is the girl you’re supposed to marry.
Vanessa Hudgens (Tick, Tick…Boom!) as Karina: Meadow’s best friend who is trustworthy, grounded and adorably pregnant.
Christopher Abbott (Kraven the Hunter, On the Count of Three) as Reed: A well-dressed shark with a heart and art dealer representing Meadow’s photography. Reed has the kind of chin that is sharp enough to cut glass but not strong enough to take a punch.
070 Shake as Nadia: Meadow’s associate from the art scene. Born and raised in New York City, Nadia is an in-your-face sculptor whose voice could only be drowned out by the brashness of her own work.
Jaden Smith (After Earth) as Jordan: An adolescent BMX superstar, Jordan’s talent earns a pass to kick it with Jabari and Jimmy. Jordan sees the dating landscape in New York City just a bit different than Jabari.
Keith David (From Scratch, 21 Bridges) as Mr. Rager: Jabari’s superhero creation.
Teyana Taylor (Coming 2 America, The Trap) as Boxing Coach: Meadow and Karina’s hard-nose boxing instructor at Rumble NYC.
Arturo Castro (Yes Day, Broad City) as Len: An upwardly mobile professional, Len is Jabrari’s co-worker at Cosmic Comics. He wears hard-bottom shoes and a newsboy cap. He’s super smart AND super annoying.
Macaulay Culkin (American Horror Story, The Righteous Gemstones) as Downtown Pat: Downtown legend and life-long, city-wide delinquent. Despite his gritty exterior, Pat has a very romantic heart and wise words to give.
LOVE, DEATH + ROBOTS
How did they do that?! If that’s the question you kept asking yourself while watching the just-released third volume of anthology Love, Death + Robots, you definitely want to see this new behind-the-scenes featurette.

As they begin their journey, they quickly discover that all is not what it seems.
Feast your eyes on these out-of-this-world images from the upcoming space horror anime series about mankind’s move to a new planet with the help of a technologically-advanced 3D printer that also may come back to hurt them.
