Oh, I put two and two while it was on the Hub and thought it moved to Discovery Family like the rest of their lineup. Well, there's some support towards CN, especially since Transformers Devastation was good.

I'm actually excited for the show because I love the games. It's a shame that Spyro's voice got replaced though because I really like his voice in the Skylanders games... probably his best voice in my opinion. So I wish they could have had the same voice actors as the games but oh well... I'll probably still like it anyway

Probably not.

People need to chill, so many shows get announced with silence for a long time until promos start showing up.

Where will I be able to view it? I live in Canada with limited TV variety, so if it's not on Nickelodeon or Netflix I probably won't be able to watch it. :/

Like the main game that's supposed to come out this year and the spinoff Battlecast(though it has a limited release),we just know they exist. Nothing other than the four main Skylanders' voice actors and a tentative time period of Q2(Pretty much after March until July, I think?) were announced in Skylanders Academy's case.

The fact that it is not centered on saving Skylands makes me think we're getting a comedy show rather than the action show I would prefer. I don't mind comedy shows but there are so many and story driven (even lightly story driven) action cartoons are so much more satisfying. Whatever they do I hope they focus on fleshing out some characters. There's a lot to work with in the character descriptions in terms of story and character development, as well as injecting good action.

It's still too early to assume that they're not going to do anything in the episodes.

The show could center on certain Skylanders taking out bad guys each episode, fleshing out their characters and introducing new people and villains.

Being made in house, chances are higher it'll be a lot Monster lf the Week-y rather than Slice of Life, since the main writers can keep an eye on it.

I have to say, if the stories in the cartoons are anything like the comics, I'll be happy to watch Skylanders Academy. The catchphrases aren't over used, there are some cheesy puns but they're downplayed enough that they're charming more than annoying, and they teach good morals without being condescending or otherwise too heavy handed. I will say though that I hope the cartoons actually show the character's backstories in flash backs or something, rather than just repeating the synopses you can already find online. Also I hope the voices aren't too cartoonish, like the kinds of voices you use to make fun of people. I've seen that done before and it's really annoying and campy.

Hoping we'll get a 6kylanders reveal along, but if the preview is big enough I can wait a few more weeks. The moment they start tweeting is usually wheb the NDAs are up, sooo....
Josh Haber also replied. Man, you better do better than in MLP, David hands out big shoes to fill after Superchargers and the comics.

The other writer is also posting the entire cast on multiple tweets.

WHAAAT!

A METALLICA MEMBER?

OH MY GOD


The budget for this show must be huge.

I'm glad they're going all out with this.

I would assume (and hope) the show is canon as well.

Well it is, it's from Acti's very own studios. That's a no brainer. Real question is if we'll get those VA changes in the games as well; it would be a huge effort but it'd be a also a quick excuse to make character-specific content since everyone's around to record at once.

I can see it happening.


Actually, should someone try to ask if it's canon with the games and comics? I think its important to know.

Anyone with twitter free to do so, I don't have one :I But nobody would go after the effort of making an in-house show with communication with dev teams just to make it not canon - Skylanders has plenty of room for pointless canon too.

AURA24!

MAY YOU ASK IF THIS IS CANON FOR US?

Honestly, I expect it to be and I also do expect some connection with the Devs on lore and creative consulting.

Well,it probably will, but probably with only subtle hints since it'll be ongoing long before release. Like rumors of the next plot or a mysterious familiar face taking classes and seen in the backgroug occasionally. After all, the Academy is for new recruits.

Though,like the comics,we probably will only get real stuff a month before or something.

Well, these are GREAT news!

I could totally see them introducing new Skylanders for the future games: imagine how cool it would be if we could get to know this much the character we will eventually have the possibility to buy and play as!
It would be a million times better than a simple backstory and some promotion images.

Do you really think Skylanders 6's reveal could be so close they may decide to partially tie it to Skylanders Academy's first trailer...?
It would be awesome but I have the feeling it is still too soon, sadly...

Sure, but even then Futurama is one of the best cartoon shows of this decade or so in my opinion.
It's just funny how he mentions it so easily.
(can't talk about Gravity Falls simply because I still haven't seen enough of it but I'm pretty sure it has the same quality)

It's like someone said "yeah, we are developing this game... Think about Final Fantasy with some Dark Souls here and there".

They know how to create hype. smilie

These information are quite nice. Good to see that the show will not be too "kiddie". And, since booth Gravity Falls and Futurama are good shows, this comparison made me a little more excited to see what's coming. Good hopes for the show.

Lol, I might do that!

Riptide I admit, has more personality that GG (As much as him). Riptide has potential to be the Flynn of the Skylanders.

A bit, but the issue with Gill Grunt is that he works bad with other 'heroic determined' characters like Spyro because he has nothing new to offer. Spyro has the grudges, Spitfire is a showoff,but Gill Grunt is just that,heroic and determined. Rip Tide seems to be one to fool around or at least be less goody two shoes than most.

Which is kinda why I'd be fine with either Hex or Nightfall because without Cynder we're still out with the aloof no-nonsense character.
