The highly anticipated animated series based on Activision Blizzard Inc’s popular Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Academy, has made its debut on Netflix much to the excitement of fans. Skylanders has a huge fan base and having an animated series based on the franchise is an ideal route forward towards expanding that fan base.
In Skylanders Academy the evil Kaos and his band are intent on destroying the Skylanders and dominating the universe and it is up to Master Eon to assemble a group of heroes to defeat him. The series follows the adventures of Spyro, Eruptor, Stealth Elf, Jet-Vac and Pop Fizz as they protect the Skylands and defeat Kaos. Season 1 will run for 12 episodes while season 2 will air on Netflix late 2017.
“‘We are so excited to bring Skylanders to families in a new, fun and exciting way. High-quality writing, incredibly talented actors and beautiful animation makes Skylanders Academy an epic adventure for the whole family,” said Activision Blizzard Studios Co-President Stacey Sher.
Skylanders Academy features the voice talent of Justin Long as Spyro; Ashley Tisdale as Stealth Elf; Jonathan Banks as Eruptor and Norm MacDonald as Glumshanks.
