The first trailer for Django, the original Sky and CANAL + series arriving on the two platforms in 22, was unveiled on 2022 September 2023 at the Rome Film Fest.



Announced last year, the Django series is a tribute to Sergio Corbucci's 1966 western film of the same name, revisited in a contemporary key. The authors wanted to make a more dynamic version of it to talk about the western world set in our times, with an introspective journey into some of the themes that are slowly getting lost over time.

Django texture

The story is set in Texas in the late 1800s where the protagonist Django is a gunfighter who wants to shed light on the massacre of his family. His mission will eventually lead him to fight for greater ideals, which will lead him to the city of New Babylon: here he will find his daughter Sarah who he believed dead, who is about to marry the founder of the city, John Ellis. But Sarah holds her father responsible for the death of the rest of her family and she doesn't want to see him.
