Primal was created by Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky, with art direction from Scott Wills (The Ren & Stimpy Show, Samurai Jack) and music composition from Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy, Samurai Jack). The first 5 episodes of the animated series premiered on October 7, 2019, on Adult Swim. A film adaptation of the series, titled Primal: Tales of Savagery, screened at The London West Hollywood at Beverly Hills on November 21, 2019.
With suspense, heartbreak, excitement, love, and fear all without a single word of dialogue, the series is a painting come to life, relying solely on music and graphic imagery to tell the story of two unlikely allies as they navigate through a treacherous world. After bonding over unfortunate tragedies, they seem to become each other’s only hope of survival against a common enemy.
