Two of Tigger’s greatest lives are Skylanders and Netflix . His teachers have commented on how well he spells both of these words when it comes to doing a segment of extended writing in class. Both Skylanders and Netflix allows him to escape to different worlds and explore a range of characters.
Today sees these two loves combining for the release of the brand new Netflix Skylanders Academy series. The Netflix Original series contains 13 episodes, which each run for approx 20 minutes.
Netflix Skylanders Academy
Based on Activision Blizzard’s pioneering video game franchise, the show follows the heroic adventures of Spyro, Eruptor, Stealth Elf, Jet-Vac and Pop Fizz as they travel the vast Skylands universe, protecting it from evil-doers. As darkness begins to threaten the balance of peace in the Skylands, Master Eon is forced to assemble a ragtop group of heroes to protect the universe from evil-doers Kaos and the Doom Raiders.
During half term, we were kindly invited down to London for a sneak preview of the new series. Needless to say, Tigger was beside himself with excitement. With the opportunity to play on the Skylanders Imaginators game before we took our seats in the screening room.
We grabbed some popcorn and a bottle of water before selecting the perfect seats to watch the first episode of the series. The first episode follows Spyro, Stealth Elf, Eruptor and Bad Breath as they train to become Senseis . All doesn’t run smoothly, especially for Spyro who thinks that his natural ability will help him through the academy .
Join Spyro, Stealth Elf, and Eruptor as they battle their way into Master Eon’s Skylanders book and become a Sensei. And attempt to scupper Kaos’ master plans to destroy the Skylanders and the Skylands.
The Skylanders Academy series one is available on Netflix now, subscriptions start at just £5.99 per month .
Disclosure: We are part of the Netflix Stream Team, however, we love Skylanders!
