Prince George Depicted As A Foul-Mouthed Brat In HBO Max’s Animated Show ‘The Prince’
Prince George is, reportedly, depicted as a foul-mouthed brat in HBO Max’s upcoming eight-part animated series, The Prince.
This week, a teaser for the new UK TV show was released. And the clip features an animated version of Prince George whining about the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince George also seemingly brags about living in a house with 775 rooms while other kids are residing in small apartments.
At one point, the animated version of Prince George also curses and complains about the cooking of his staff.
Immediately after the teaser was released, several royal fans and industry experts slammed the show’s writer, Gary Janetti for taking cheap shots at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest son.
One Disney Studio producer said that the way Prince George is depicted in the cartoons is unfair and cruel.
The insider also said that it’s morally wrong to use a child for cheap laughs.
TV critic Katherine Singh also said that Prince George is an impressionable child. As such, it is possible that he could get affected by what he sees on television.
Singh also said that Prince George is old enough to understand how he’s being depicted in the show.
Several royal fans are also urging the royal family to take action. One of them even started a petition to have The Prince canceled even before it airs.
However, Janetti said that he hopes Prince George would understand the humor in the series when he’s older.
The Prince follows the life of Prince George as he navigates life as the heir to the British throne.
He is also joined by the other members of the royal family like Prince William, Middleton, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle.
According to the show’s synopsis, every episode will feature Prince George as he navigates through his life as a royal and as a student in modern times.
Janetti voices Prince George in the series, while Orlando Bloom voices Prince Harry.
Sophie Turner voices Princess Charlotte, Condola Rashad voices Markle, and Lucy Punch voices Middleton.
Other actors who lent their voices to the show include Alan Cumming, Dan Stevens, Frances De La Tour, and Iwan Rheon.
As of late, the release date for The Prince has yet to be announced. But according to the show’s fandom, the series could be released before 2020 ends.
