Skylanders Academy now streaming on Netflix


For Portal Masters not too distracted by Skylanders Imaginators, the new animated series “Skylanders Academy” is now available on Netflix. As previously announced, the first season consists of 13 episodes, all of which are available now. A second season will launch in late 2017. The series is focused on the adventures of series favorites Spyro, Stealth Elf, Eruptor, Jet Vac, and Pop Fizz. The story and characters vary from the games in a few ways, but it’s worth a watch for fans anyway. As we reported previously, the new voice cast includes Justin Long (Spyro), Ashley Tisdale (Stealth Elf), Jonathan Banks (Eruptor), and Norm Macdonald (Glumshanks) to name a few. Richard Horvitz, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Billy West reprise their roles from the games as Kaos, Pop Fizz, and Food Fight, respectively. The series also features a brand new theme song by Timbaland (which has been stuck in my head all day). If you have a Netflix subscription, give it a watch; there are aspects of the series to impress newcomers and existing fans alike.
