There’s a new – and beyond unbelievable! – trailer out for the highly anticipated TV adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, but there’s only one problem: Netflix had nothing to do with it.
Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is getting the re-adaptation it deserves in an all new Netlix series. If it sticks to the source material, it will follow the adventures of three siblings, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire whose parents dies in a house fire. The show it advertised doesn’t exist and Netflix confirmed to us that they had nothing to do with the teaser. Additionally, uploader Eleanora Poe shares a name with the fictional editor-in-chief of The Daily Punctilio in the Unfortunate Events universe, lending the video further legitimacy.
“This was not released from Netflix and not anything official”, a company rep told Entertainment Weekly.
Afterwards, the book entitled “Mushroom Minutae” was shown, as well as several items from Lucky Smells Lumber Mill, as well as a crow.
But even though Olaf dominates the trailer, he’s not the only character who “appears” in it: The clip closes on a Netflix logo being typed out on an old-fashioned typewriter.
A blood-sucking leech from Lake Lachrymose – the setting in book three. We are proud to start work on a series for a global audience that already loves the books.
Express.co.uk contacted Netflix for comment on whether the trailer was produced by them. But the cameo locket also looks strikingly similar to the cover of Handler’s supplementary book, The Beatrice Letters, which have direct relevance only to book 13, The End.
