NBC Launches Animated Dracula Prequel

draculaprequel1 NBC’s new Dracula series, starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, premieres Friday October 25th, and, to get you in the mood, the network has released Part 1 of its animated companion series, Dracula Rising.  The 2.5 minute short has a stencil-graffiti look and a dark, gory, tone, as it lays the backstory for fiction’s most famous vampire, inspired by the myths of Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia.

If the prequel is any indication, NBC’s Dracula plans to keep its namesake pretty traditional, in a  sexy-by-modern-standards way. Let’s just hope the visually stunning prequels aren’t overselling the live-action drama.
