Netflix Green Eggs and Ham reveals star-studded ensemble cast

Any project produced by Ellen DeGeneres is bound to attract a whole range of celebrities, but the ensemble cast for Netflix' Green Eggs and Ham is completely filled with stars.

The show is gearing up for it's Autumn debut, and features voice acting from well-known names such as Adam DeVine, Michael Douglas, Ilana Glazier, Diane Keaton, Eddie Izzard and Keegan-Michael Key (of Key & Peele fame). 

The series is based on the beloved book by the prolific Dr Seuss, and the animated show follows polar opposites Guy and Sam as they venture out on an adventure to save the Chickeraffe, an endangered animal from a distant zoo.

Along the way, they learn how to attempt new things, like friendship, positivity and a certain notorious dish. It's essentially a post-modern Planes, Trains and Automobiles through a whimsical children's author's mind.

Jared Stern created the show and enlisted the queen of day-time television, Ellen DeGeneres, for producing duties.

It has since been revealed that Adam DeVine will voice Sam I Am, and Michael Douglas will portray Guy I Am.

Diane Keaton is Michellee, Michael Keegan-Key will be the voice of the narrator, Eddie Izzard is Snerz, Jeffrey Wright will act as McWinkle, Jillian Bell is Gluntz, Turturro is Goat, Morgan is Fox and Daveed Diggs is Mouse.

The two mismatched heroes Guy and Sam cross paths with Michellee, an overprotective mum whose daughter, EB, desperately desires to have a pet.

EB falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe, despite her mum's worries.

Michelle's closed-off heart becomes more and more open to Guy, and a love story starts from there. The story is a journey of self-discovery and heart-warming moments, we can't wait for it to arrive.

With a cast this famous, it's sure to be watched by millions. The show will debut on Netflix this Autumn, and the excitement is building by the day.
