South Park Kids Shown as Adults in Post-COVID Movie First-Look Trailer

Children South Park They all grew up in the first trailer for South Park: Post COVID, an original event that premieres on Paramount + Thanksgiving Day. The question of what happened to Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny during the pandemic will be answered, though the promo teases how they were permanently changed forever. An hour-long South Park pandemic special aired on Comedy Central in September 2020. Aside from the movies, this was the first episode of South Park to span more than 30 minutes. Of course, the most surprising moment of the trailer is the time jump that reveals the adult versions of Stan and Kyle.

The dramatic music opens the trailer with phrases such as “We’ve been through a lot,” “Everything has changed,” and “What will the future hold?” This last question is the scene of adult Stan receiving a phone call at his home from adult Kyle, who appears to be a professor of psychology at the University of Colorado. A poster “Drugs Are Still Bad” was hung in the background of his office, a callback to the children’s school teacher Mr. Garrison. “Stan, do you remember when we were kids? We said as kids we’d always be there for each other when things went wrong.” Stan closes the trailer, “What do you mean? What happened?”

Stan’s father is still alive in the future, as the combination of father and son makes a joke in the South Park: Post COVID Special. Second new exclusive South Park The event is scheduled to follow in December on Paramount+. South Park Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone recently signed a $900 million deal with ViacomCBS to make two new South Park films for Paramount+ each year for the next seven years. “They are the boys who are dealing with the post-COVID world,” Parker told The Hollywood Reporter last October. “They’re just trying to get back to normal. So it’s like our show. We’re just trying to get back to normal.”

“With Viacom, we realized we could make it as long or short as we needed,” Parker said. “Then they went and called them movies. They’re the ones who said we’d give them 14 movies in seven years. All I can say is for me, personally, I’m 52, I’ve made three movies in my life. So you do the math.”

“We try to make what’s shown on Paramount+ different than anywhere else, so movies made for hour-long television are our focus,” Stone added. “We’re going to make two made-for-TV movies every year. They’re going to be huge, but they’re not quite on cinematic scale.”

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with South Park: Post COVID On November 25.
