Netflix Plans "Skylanders," "Spy Kids" Series

16 June 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Netflix has given a two-season order for "Skylanders Academy," the first project from video game giant Activision Blizzard's in-house production outfit Activision Blizzard Studios.

The series itself was first announced as being in the works with the creation of the studio late last year. The show, based on the multi-billion dollar toy brand, charts a team of heroes as they train the next wave of Skylanders Academy cadets.

Justin Long, Ashley Tisdale, Jonathan Banks and Norm MacDonald play regulars while the likes of Susan Sarandon, Parker Posey, Catherine O'Hara, Bobcat Goldthwait and Chris Diamantopoulos will lend their voices to the series.

"Futurama" writer Eric Rogers serves as showrunner with Sander Schwartz, Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk executive producing. The first episodes will debut on the streaming service in the Fall.

The confirmation comes as Netflix unveiled a new slate of kids' properties set to debut shortly including adaptations of the kids book series "Llama Llama," the graphic novels "Hilda," the Dreamworks animated feature "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron," and the live-action "Spy Kids" film franchise.
