The Lion Guard is an upcoming Lion King tv series about Simba's son Kion leading a group of animals to protect the Pride Lands. But instead of the current Lion Guard being made of lions, Kion recruits his animal friends as members of the Lion Guard to help him protect their home. It's supposed to take place within TLK2 when Kiara is still a cub. The movie debut was last Sunday.

Wow,thought they had given up in TLK after the midquel. Well, we can't really tell much from what Acti will do for their series, since it'll be first from the studio, we can only tell from who they're hiring's previous works and even then it's no guarantee.

Dooooo not. Acti doesn't care about what you want, and if they won't, I'll just hope that the series will be good for those who like it like me, and usually childish is not included in the stories.

Well,because they usually/always outsource it. This is being made by Activision themselves,just like the upcoming World of Warcraft movie. Most adaptations are made by a bunch of people that 1. don't care about the work 2. use a superficial view of the fandom as their only reference 3. try to shove their own views of the game and not the devs'. If the devs can actually oversee projects now,they'll stay more faithful.

We get it, you hate Skylanders, just stop derailing the topic with your dislike/hate of it and move on to a non-Skylanders topic. Your derailment CAN be labelled as off-topic and can be removed by the moderators if you continue.

I hope the writing is good as David and Ron's in the Skylander comics.

I honestly think this is a good idea.

It will finally give Skylander characters some actual character development.

My hope is that they do the 1-2 new character per episode, that serves as a main character for that episode kinda deal, like Pokemon kinda does.

I'd expect Spyro to be the main dragon with the others appearing every so often. Can't have the entire show focus on the dragons or it'd get boring. Too many of the same species is pretty stupid.

I'm actually surprised there isn't a Whirlwind plushie since both dev teams love her. Maybe she's too large while Spyro and non-dragons don't have a huge wingspan or serpentine torsos and that interferes with plushies.

There's a difference between "making money" and "churning out 5 games in 3 years and releasing a ****ton of DLC for each one and now making a full cartoon to go along with it".

Skylanders is being milked for all it's worth, and it's sad that Spyro has to be involved in the cluster**** of marketing rush.

You might want to check your math. 5 games in five years. Physical DLC that you DON'T HAVE to buy with the exception of starter packs and even then only one of them is actually required. 'Sides, not the only yearly game, and if it was toys to life or not Acti would make it like this anyway because they're pretty much built on thinking short term.

At least we're getting something featuring Spyro when they could've used any other character, while people hoping for classic Spyro cartoon can just dream on.

To be fair: 5 main games and 5 complimentary games (4 3DS exclusives + SC Racing for 3DS/Wii), as well as side games on mobile/tablet and minor flash games on the website.

But yes, 5 years, not 3.

Isn't this what nearly every other hugely successful franchise has done? "milk the **** out of it"? I mean really, I basically expected this,
Spyro isn't dead, the other games still exist, and the current version of Spyro is very similar to the personality of the original Spyro. It's just a video game character, grow up, you would complain if there was a TV series or not. A Tv series makes sense, especially for a video game series with easily marketable characters aimed at kids.

I don't know if I'll actually be watching this show, I don't even plan on buying the current Skylander game, but I'll probably tune in to see how it is.

That's not the right thing to say. It's a easy escape from the criticism.

Now let's see:

Skylanders is a franchise. The reason Spyro and Skylanders exists is to, obviously, give money to the company that owns the franchise. Any big company makes this with his famous characters (Nintendo with Mario, Sega with Sonic, Ubisoft with Assassin's Creed). That is one of the primal rules in any market. If you have a famous character/product, milk this product while it gives money enough. Use what gives you money. There's no problem with it. Actually, I'm surprised that only since 2014 that Activision decided to really expand the franchise's scope.

It's not Skylanders fault that Spyro doesn't have a new game. If Skylanders doesn't existed, Spyro would be forgotten for years, just like Crash. At least now Spyro has something to do each year.

There's no need of new Spyro figures. You can play with the old ones. Also, Spyro is the main character on the comic books and TV series, so he can't be forgotten forever.

Are you trying to say that TLOS should come back?

Because of if so, then it shouldn't. TLOS is a trilogy and it's done. The big bad had been defeated. The only reason why the original Spyro could continue past YOTD was because there was a new evil in every game. TLOS had one main villain throughout the trilogy and making another would just dampen it.

If you really miss them, then go back and play them again. They're still around. I'm not fan of TLOS at all and I'm not a fan of any classic game after YOTD, so I've put up with no Insomniac-like Spyro game for 16 years, yet I don't care because I know that the classic trilogy that I love is still there to play on the Playstation Network, and I've moved on from Spyro. I'm planning on replaying the classic trilogy soon. Having three games, a trilogy, isn't a bad thing and I don't see why every game should continue past the third, which is a decent amount of playtime. Just be happy that it even expanded into a trilogy, because there are some games out there who truly deserve much more than just one game, like Okami (or in Okami's case, one game and one ****ty sequel), yet don't get one.

Been a while since I left a post on here, but I thought I'd just say these three hopes I have for the show:

I hope they don't just focus on the most popular or newest cast of Skylanders. We all know Activision tries to either push your Gill Grunts and Stealth Elfs and whoever is the star of the most recent game to try and make the other characters obsolete... And with how many Skylanders there are, it would be a seriously wasted opportunity to just focus on a certain group and barely give anyone else any screentime.

I hope we see some new Skylanders. Yeah, I know I'm pretty much contradicting what I just said above... But think about it, the show is called "Skylanders Academy", named after a place described as a school for new Skylanders... It would only make sense to use the show to promote characters from the next game.

I hope this show broadens the fandom to more people. Despite all their flaws, I think Skylanders is a pretty underrated game series, and I hope the writing and characters on the show would be great enough to make the fandom even bigger, perhaps as big as the Steven Universe or Undertale ones.

Does it even matter at this point? I would Spyro to have his own game again but he's still a Skylander. It's been nearly 5 years, people. Listen to that famous song in Frozen and take Elsa's advice.
