Adult Animation

Beavis and Butt-Head, one of the most iconic animated duos of the 1990s, is about to return with BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD TO CONQUEST THE UNIVERSE, a story that technically spans two centuries and promises to top all future lists of the dumbest science fiction movies ever made. The saga begins when Beavis and Butt-Head end up in a space camp thanks to a juvenile court judge’s “creative sentencing” in 1998. After screwing up a mission, they are marooned in space and end up traversing a black hole and re-emerging on Earth in 2022, only to discover a very different world. Lending their voices are two exceptional Italian stand-up comedians and comedy writers, Edoardo Ferrario and Luca Ravenna.

SOUTH PARK THE STREAMING WARS follows Cartman as he clashes with his mother in a battle of wills as an epic conflict unfolds that threatens the very existence of South Park, while in SOUTH PARK THE STREAMING WARS – PART 2 a drought has brought the town of South Park to the brink of disaster.

The films will feature Riccardo Zanotti and Elio Biffi, members of the musical group Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, who will voice different characters: Riccardo will play a weather reporter in the first episode and actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the second, while Elio, who voices a guide in the first episode, will lend his voice to comedian Larry David in the second film.
