Great news portal masters, the highly anticipated Skylanders Academy TV Show is now available for streaming on Netflix! The show now enters the list of shows on-demand that you can access over the internet amongst a myriad of others across many platforms. With access to more video-on-demand and premium channels via EATEL, you can increase the amount of entertainment you have access to. However, to access some of these videos, you will need an internet connection to allow them to download. Slow internet speeds can cause these videos and TV shows to buffer regularly, so it’s important to find a digital service provider, like Satellite Internet Now, that offers high-speed internet connections to allow you to watch these streaming services easily. Hopefully, that will improve your viewing experience significantly.
12 episodes in total, each lasting 24-25 minutes (with the exception of the pilot episode, which is 44 minutes).
Season 2 has already been confirmed for the fall of 2017.
Head over to Netflix now to watch all the episodes. Don’t have Netflix? No problem, you can sign up for a 30 day trial here. Or you can trail a different streaming service such as Hulu TV.

Here is the debut trailer for Skylanders Academy, followed by the official press release:
Activision Blizzard, Inc.’s highly anticipated animated series Skylanders Academy makes its debut today on Netflix. Based on Activision Blizzard’s Skylanders video game franchise, Skylanders Academy 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. Skylanders Academy is the first project from Activision Blizzard Studios.
“‘We are so excited to bring Skylanders to families in a new, fun and exciting way,” said Activision Blizzard Studios Co-President Stacey Sher. “High-quality writing, incredibly talented actors and beautiful animation make Skylanders Academy an epic adventure for the whole family.”
“With a huge and engaged global fan base, the $3 billion Skylanders franchise was a natural fit for our first project,” said studio Co-President Nick van Dyk. “Partnering with Netflix means huge new audiences can meet the Skylanders, while giving millions of fans worldwide even more of the characters they love.”
In Skylanders Academy, as darkness begins to threaten peace in the Skylands, Master Eon is forced to assemble a ragtag group of heroes to protect the universe from evil-doers Kaos and the Doom Raiders. Using their unique blend of personalities and super powers, Spyro and his fellow Skylanders are called upon to set aside egos as they come together to maintain harmony and balance in the land.
Created by Toys For Bob, the Skylanders franchise has sold through more than 250 million toys since pioneering the toys-to-life category in 2011. Earlier this month Activision revealed the Skylanders Imaginators video game, which gives kids the power to create their very own Skylanders and bring them to life for the first time.
Season 1 of Skylanders Academy runs for 13 episodes and Season 2 will debut on Netflix in late 2017. Led by showrunner Eric Rogers (Futurama), the series features the voices of Justin Long (DodgeBall) as Spyro; Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical) as Stealth Elf; Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad) as Eruptor; and Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live) as Glumshanks. Additional voice talent includes Susan Sarandon, Daniel Wu, Bobcat Goldthwait, The Diamond Minecart, Parker Posey, James Hetfield, Catherine O’Hara, Chris Diamantopoulos and Harland Williams, among others. The series features the exclusive song “Harmony” (The Skylanders Academy Theme) produced and performed by GRAMMY® Award winner Timbaland, featuring Dalton Diehl. Skylanders Academy is the first Netflix original series to be inspired by a video game franchise.
Sher and van Dyk are joined by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick and Sander Schwartz, the Emmy® award-winning producer of animated hits including “The Batman” and “The Aquabats! Super Show!” as the show’s executive producers. Skylanders Academy is animated by the internationally acclaimed TeamTO studio in France.
Activision Blizzard Studios launched last year to create original content based on the company’s extensive library of iconic and globally-recognized intellectual properties, which includes some of the most popular entertainment franchises in the world.
