Online musicals are all the rage, and we probably have the Whedon clan to thank for that. Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog gets a lot of credit for pushing web video forward, and you can’t help but notice its inspiration in The Legend of Neil’s new season with the release of Episode 3 (above) today on Atom.com. (Warning, the video is potentially NSFW. Well, depending on where you work.)
Neil creators Sandeep Parikh and Tony Janning, who stars as Neil in the series, gave a preview of the episode last month at a live screening. In what be the raunchiest appearance on screen to date by Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), Day returns as the fairy finding herself is a spot of trouble with Ganon (Scott Chernoff).
And as if it needed more of a Whedon/Dr. Horrible connection, we learned that Maurissa Tancharoen sings the voice of Zelda in the episode as actor Angie Hill lip syncs. From what we can tell, the composers Nigel Cordeiro and Robert Harrington, have no relations to the Wheodon clan.
While this is the only musical episode of Neil for the the season, another upcoming comedy web series, The Cabonauts, promises a breakout song and dance number in every episode.
