Kelly Marie Tran Will Visit Hulu’s ‘Monsterland’

The famous Star Wars actress is now joining a world full of fantasy creatures.


Hulu’s anthology series, which is based on a collection of stories by Nathan Ballingrud, is set in a world inhabited by fantastic creatures. It follows “broken people” who want to fix their lives. The description is vague, but we definitely should not expect colorful fantasy stories.


THR reported yesterday that Kelly Marie Tran joins a solid cast including Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart), Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black), and Mike Colter (Luke Cage). Tran will supposedly be playing a woman who returns to her small Michigan hometown to get married after building a good life for herself following her best friend’s disappearance when they were 16.


The series is produced by Annapurna Television and created, written, and executive produced by Mary Laws (The Neon DemonPreacher). Babak Anvari, Lucan Toh, Megan Ellison, and Sue Naegle also serve as executive producers.
