Mystery Abounds In Netflix’s ‘Lemony Snicket’ Trailer

by Devon Thomas  |  11.17.2016

Netflix has unveiled the full trailer for its Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events series, which will launch its eight-episode run in January.

Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Daniel Handler, the series chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny Baudelaire (Presley Smith), after their parents’ death in a fire.

A careless oversight initially places the children in the custody of a distant relative named Count Olaf (wickedly played by Neil Patrick Harris), a mysterious and devious figure who is seeking fortune by way of stealing their inheritance.

After his elaborate plans are foiled and his evil intentions are revealed, Count Olaf employs a variety of outlandish disguises to situate himself in the children’s path, causing mayhem for the Baudelaires and their subsequent guardians. As the children manage to evade Count Olaf’s scheming attempts to steal their fortune, they pick up clues along the way about their parents’ past.

Netflix’s adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s book series also stars Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes as Violet and Klaus Baudelaire.
