So if you haven't noticed already, we are a bit Skylander crazy here! Chester has been a fan right from the very beginning, back in the days of Spyros Adventure. He is a big collector of the characters, and has always used them not only for the game play but also for imaginative play. Now Millie is a little older she is also showing a very keen interest in the game!
One thing we have always said is that Skylanders would make a great TV programme. We were invited to London on Monday to a Skylanders event, and whilst there we were lucky enough to see our dreams become reality!
Yes, that's right! Skylanders has been made into a TV programme! How amazing is that?!
The series, named Skylanders Academy, is going to availible exclusively on Netflix. Season One has 13 episodes at approximately 20 minutes per episode. Based on Activision Blizzards pioneering video game franchise, the show follows the heroic adventures of Spyro, Eruptor, Stealth Elf, Jet Vac and Popp Fizz as they travel the vast skylands universe protecting it from evil doers.
Now, we were extremely lucky enough to get an exclusive screening of the first episode, and let me tell you, it was awesome! It is everything we had hoped it would be. Millie found Kaos hilarious, some of the things he said were good enough to entertain me too! Chester loved getting to know the characters personalities a bit more, and all three of us agreed that it was very humorous. The adults in the room recognised some famous voices including; Justin Long (DodgeBall), Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical), and Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad). It has been written by Eric Rogers (Futureama) and to me that explains the well placed humour!
Chester, Millie and I will certainly be watching the new series on Netflix. It starts tomorrow (28th October 2016). If you are a Skylander fan then this programme is for you!
