A few weeks before Disney+ officially launched, the House of Mouse announced that they would join forces with the Jim Henson Company to give birth to a unique puppet show. Today, the streaming service released the first trailer for Earth to Ned. The show seems like a sort of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, but in live-action. Disney’s comedic half-hour talk show will feature a couple of aliens interviewing celebrity guests. Gina Carano, RuPaul, Joel McHale, and many more appear in the 10-episode first season.
You can watch the official Earth to Ned trailer in the player below. Among other things, it offers a closer look at Ned’s sidekick, Cornelius.

The official description of Earth to Ned reads:
“From The Jim Henson Company comes a brand new talk show hosted by alien commander Ned and his lieutenant Cornelius, who call off the invasion of Earth after they fall in love with human culture. Broadcasting from the bridge of their spaceship, hidden deep underground, Ned and Cornelius interview Earth’s greatest resource, celebrities. With the help of the ship’s artificial intelligence, BETI, and the destructive CLODs (Cloned Living Organisms of Destruction), Ned must keep his show a secret from his home planet or suffer the wrath of his father, the Admiral of the Galactic Fleet.
Each episode focuses on a topic or theme that is both equally unique to earthlings and fascinating to Ned, including comedy, sports, social media, and fashion. Ned beams in celebrity guests from across the known universe to put on the ultimate chat show, but the more he learns about our human culture, the more obsessed he becomes.”
All the episodes of Earth to Ned hit Disney+ on Sept. 4.
