LOOKING FOR ALASKA Teaser Capitalizes On Beloved Book Quotes

The first teaser for Hulu’s upcoming Looking For Alaska miniseries is here, and it’s definitely meant for fans of John Green‘s 2005 novel that inspired it all.

The teaser doesn’t dive into the story, but rather focuses on four of the main characters– Alaska (Kristine Froseth,) The Colonel (Denny Love,) Takumi (Jay Lee,) and Miles aka Pudge (Charlie Plummer)– sharing some of their most popular quotes from the book while walking through their private school campus and the woods just beyond it.

Without the context of their scenes, the quotes feel a little out of place, but it still works. There’s a definite moodiness to the aesthetic that feels in line with the book. Perhaps we’d go so far as to call it an early 2000s emo vibe?

We’ll all be able to binge Looking For Alaska when it hits Hulu in its entirety on October 18, 2019. Until then, let’s hope for a lengthier trailer soon!
