HBO Max Original is foraying into the world of adult animation with the release of Pobre Diablo. This series is made in Spanish and is going to be the first animated series to be released in the USA. The show’s voice cast includes prominent names like Reyes, Sevilla, Veroica, Mi Hoa Lee, etc. One of the voice-over artists, Forque, passed away without finishing the recording process.
However, the creators will include her work as a tribute. Fans of adult animation will surely love this new series by HBO Max. Created by Joaquin Reyes, the series focuses on the life of a kid who’s sent to Earth to create chaos. The series promises lots of drama.
Pobre Diablo translates to “poor devil” in English. Well, the title perfectly sums up the state of our hero—a poor guy stuck due to several circumstances. He desires peace and wants to be a star, but the poor devil is being forced by his Satanic family to unleash destruction and complete the tasks before the prophecy.
Pobre Diablo Episode 1 Preview
Pobre Diablo is the story of Stan. Though he is just a teenager, he isn’t like others. This boy is Satan’s son, who has been moved to Earth for an inferior purpose. Satan wishes to bring about Earth’s destruction. But things take an unexpected turn when Stan forgets why his father sent him to Earth in the first place.
Stan aims to become a Broadway star. He begins to enjoy his time on Earth by drinking and enjoying himself. He begins doing all the stuff that he was asked not to do. However, Stan only has a month before the prophecy expires. He must destroy everything in order to obtain Armageddon.
But the funny twist is when we get to know that Stan isn’t interested in creating any destruction. He is more invested in wanting to sing, dance, and have fun during his time on Earth. Stan’s father Satan constantly reminds him to begin the destruction, but Stan is unconcerned.
Pobre Diablo is the creation of Rokyn Animation Studio. The makers have focused on creating a series whose popularity can expand across borders. The creator of Pobre Diablo is known for not mincing his words at all. So fans can expect a witty satire.
Other characters include Mephisto, Samael, and Sutur. All three are devils and specialize in different skills to wreak havoc and destruction. These three will be seen convincing Stan to work on destruction. Stan will also cross paths with a budding actress who perhaps would assist him in his dream to become a Broadway Star.
It would be interesting to see if the three friends can succeed in convincing Pobre to unleash destruction. The episodes will explore the dynamics of Stan with the devils and the human characters he will meet when he lands on Earth. Will Stan get convinced by his father to destroy humanity?
