American Gods‘ roll-out of first-look character images continues, this time with Kristin Chenoweth as Easter.
Producer Bryan Fuller posted the image on his Twitter account, dropping this rhyme along with it:
Easter in her Easter bonnet
with all the frills upon it.
In Neil Gaiman‘s novel, Easter is one of the Old Gods who has adapted well to the new age. She assists protagonist Shadow Moon when he is at a low point in his journey.
American Gods been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel. The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.
American Gods is set to release sometime (hopefully early) in 2017 on Starz.
