Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix is an adult animated streaming television series produced by Ubisoft Film & Television and animated by Bobbypills. Developed by Adi Shenkar and loosely adapted from Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Captain Laserhawk premiered on Netflix on October 19, 2023.
Rayman, voiced by David Menkin, is one of the main characters. An alien from the parallel world of Dimension X, he is the public face of Eden, the totalitarian megacorporation which has replaced the United States of America. As such, he is the presenter of various shows, such as The Eden Late Show and The Eden Report, and the face of the Rayman Kids, a youth organisation which indoctrinates children and encourages them to report suspicious actions to the regime.
Ubisoft initially introduced the show in October 2019, naming it Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe, under the direction of Adi Shankar, known for his work on the Castlevania TV series. During Netflix's "Geeked Week" virtual event in June 2021, Shankar announced his role as the producer for the series, which draws inspiration from Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and was therefore renamed Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix. Shankar led the project, collaborating with the Paris-based animation studio Bobbypills for production. Creative direction was overseen by Balak, with Mehdi Leffad as the director. Producers from Ubisoft Film & Television included Gérard Guillemot, Hélène Juguet, and Hugo Revon.
The series is set in an alternative 1992 in the country formerly known as the USA. Now called Eden, it is a technocracy ruled by propaganda and corruption. Super-soldier Dolph Laserhawk has just been betrayed by the love of his life and locked up in Eden’s top security prison Supermaxx. He must now lead a team of rebel outcasts on risky undercover missions in order to survive.
