With the first episode in theaters, it’s time to get to know Hannibal.
The episode was filmed in Toronto with the help of a production company called “Tango” (yes, that means Tango, not that you should be surprised if you’re not familiar with that name).
The crew filmed the episode as the stars sat around the campfire, reading the script while Hannibal played a game of poker with them.
As we’ve seen from the first few seasons of Hannibal, it can be a challenge to find time for long conversations with actors who have different tastes.
The crew was able to find some good moments during the first season.
There were a few references to the Hannibal Lecter books, for instance.
Hannibal’s own son Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) was an avid fan of the books and the actors who play him have a knack for making sure to pay homage to the character.
It’s a rare thing to find a cast that can do both in such a unique way.
This episode was written by executive producer Bryan Fuller, who is also directing the show.
The first episode is out March 23 on Netflix.
