Prince Harry, Meghan Markle getting animated treatment in HBO Max series

The man who brought us Family Guy is now making an animated series about the Royal Family.

Anyone familiar with Janetti's Instagram account will know what to expect here: sassy Prince George, utter disdain for the royal family, and frequent appearances from his "Gan Gan", Queen Elizabeth.

HBO has announced a new animated series based on the British royal family, and it sounds gas.

Because his succession isn't coming any time soon, in each episode George will find his path in life as a young prince in modern times - from the 775 rooms of Buckingham Palace to his family's sea of corgis to primary school with commoners.

Deadline describes the show as "a biting, satirical look at the life of Prince George of Cambridge, the youngest heir to the British throne, as he navigates the trials and tribulations of being a royal child".

Are you excited to see Janetti's princely spoofs come to animated life? .

The fictional George often aims barbed comments at his sibling - Charlotte and Louis - his uncle Harry and aunt Meghan, their son Archie, and other members of his family.

"I haven't really watched [the ITV documentary], so I don't really know that much about it, but I do know it feels like they're having a rough go of it - I think that's the gist", Janetti told PEOPLE two days after Harry & Meghan: An African Journey aired in the United Kingdom.

Not everyone is impressed with the announcement.

While Lucy Punch and Game of Thrones alum Iwan Rheon will voice his royal highness' parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, the upcoming series has brought in Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad (Billions) to play Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the current targets of George's sass.

Other people reported as being part of the show include, USA actress Condola Rashad voicing Meghan Markle.

Alan Cumming will voice George's butler, Owen.
