The trailer teases the series' adventurous spirit, showing Penelope and young protagonist Kevin (played by Brit actor Kal-El Tuck) navigating through historical eras, facing everything from dinosaurs to the Harlem Renaissance.

The series promises an exhilarating journey filled with treasure-hunting adventures set against iconic historical backdrops.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the ensemble cast of 'Time Bandits' is diverse, featuring Tadhg Murphy, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Rune Temte, Charlyne Yi, Rachel House, Kiera Thompson, James Dryden, Felicity Ward, Francesca Mills, and Imaan Hadchiti, known for her role in 'Thor: Love and Thunder.'
