Netflix Picks Up Activision Blizzard’s ‘Skylanders Academy’ for 2-Season Order

Activision Blizzard’s “Skylanders Academy” has landed a 2-season ordered on Netflix. According to Deadline, the debut series from Activision Blizzard’s film and TV studio will begin streaming there this fall.

“Skylanders Academy,” which is based on Activision Blizzard’s toys-to-life video game franchise of the same name, will follow Spyro and his team of heroes as they train cadets at the eponymous school. Justin Long (Spyro), Ashley Tisdale (Stealth Elf), Jonathan Banks (Eruptor) and Norm MacDonald (Glumshanks) will all lend their voices to the series, in addition to Susan Sarandon, Daniel Wu, Parker Posey, James Hetfield, Catherine O’Hara, Bobcat Goldthwait, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jonny Rees, Harland Williams and Richard Horvitz.

“Futurama” Eric Rogers is attached as showrunner. He’ll be joined by Activision Blizzard Studios co-presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk, who will executive produce alongside Sander Schwartz.

A film series for the “Call of Duty” franchise is also in the works at Activision Blizzard, which announced its plans to build a film and TV studio last November. There are also plans for properties like “Diablo,” “Destiny,” “StarCraft” and “Candy Crush Saga” at the studio, though it’s unclear at this time where these upcoming projects will be released.
