A new trailer is here for Netflix’s “We the People”, an animated show, produced by Barack and Michelle Obama.
On Wednesday, the Obamas announced they had produced the new show for the streaming giant. We the People is a 10-episode series aimed at educating children on United States civics lessons.
“The show combines music and animation to educate a new generation of young Americans about the power of the people,” a description for the show reads.
The show will also feature performances from H.E.R., Adam Lambert, Cordae, Frozen‘s Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Hamilton‘s Daveed Diggs, Brittany Howard, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Brandi Carlile, KYLE, Bebe Rexha, Andra Day, Janelle Monáe, and poet Amanda Gorman with original songs and compositions that will soundtrack each narrative.
In the trailer, H.E.R. sings about the importance of educating yourself about your rights and responsibilities as a citizen. “Pay attention so I know my rights, education’s gonna change the cycle,” she sings.
In another snippet, Cordae sings about taxes. “Now let me start to tell y’all all about taxes. How much do you pay? Well that depends on your bracket.”
Each episode of the series is set to serve as a call to action for everyone. It’ll push the viewer to rethink civics as a living and breathing thing and reframe their understanding of what government and citizenship mean in a modern world.
