As it turns out, Taylor Sheridan’s latest Yellowstone spin-off series isn’t the most unexpected project linked to Matthew McConaughey in 2023. It’s Agent Elvis.

Coming soon to Netflix, this represents the very first adult animated production from Sony Pictures Animated – the same studio behind the universally-acclaimed Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse – and has been visually designed by the Academy Award-nominated Robert Valley; featuring a wardrobe designed by fashion legend John Varvatos.

According to the official series description, here’s what you can expect story-wise from Agent Elvis starring Matthew McConaughey:

Elvis Presley trades in his jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves – all while holding down his day job as the King of Rock and Roll.

Netflix’s Agent Elvis has been created by the man himself’s widow Priscilla Presley and John Eddie; with Mike Arnold serving as showrunner, head writer and executive producer alongside Eddie.

“From the time Elvis was a young boy he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! Agent King lets him do just that,” Priscilla Presley noted when this was first announced back in 2019 (via Variety).

“My co-creator John Eddie and I are so excited to be working with Netflix and Sony Animation on this amazing project and getting the chance to show the world an Elvis they haven’t seen before.”

McConaughey, Kevin Noel, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, Ben Kalina, Jamie Salter, Corey Salter, and Marc Rosen have executive produced with Fletcher Moules having co-executive produced.

While the Agent Elvis release date has yet to be confirmed, Netflix have confirmed it’s slated to premiere sometime this March – check out the first trailer above.
