Netflix's upcoming animated series will center around Wyclef Jean's Haitian upbringing.
Wyclef Jean is about to open up about his childhood since Netflix has signed on to create an animated series about his youth, Deadline reports. The script will be penned by Disney's Jungle Book screenwriter Justin Marks and revolve around Wyclef's upbringing in Haiti.
“I grew up in extreme poverty but I was rich with imagination,” the former Fugees member said. “Now to see that imagination turn into reality with Netflix and my producing partners makes me want to tell the kids from the slums around the world to never stop dreaming.”
"When Wyclef first came to us with the rich story idea for an animated film about his personal journey and the evolution of his music from when he was a young boy in Haiti to finding his voice in New York City—we were hooked," Netflix VP of kids and family Melissa Cobb added.
The project is currently untitled but keep it locked on the site for more details.
