I kinda want a theme song change, the theme song isn't horrible but I'm not a fan of it. I'd be okay with a Marshmello or Alan Walker remix of the theme song though.

I've just finished watching the first season so I could see what all the fuss was about. The first episode got a mixed response from me, but every single episode was gold. That's rare for a TV show.

Positives:
- Episodes are only ~20 minutes in length, which is plenty of time to pack suspense, action and wit into each adventure. There's some episodes that I wish went on longer, but I know they'll continue in the next in some fashion.
- The jokes kept on getting better. There were a couple of laugh-out-loud moments in the pilot, and they continued throughout the 11 extra episodes.
- Characters saw their own episodes and expanded on their lore or abilities. I wouldn't mind them being more like their figures though (Eruptor Lava Barfing more, Elf using her scarecrows, Jet-Vac vaccing up stuff, etc.).
- Art style is fine, animation is superb.
- Voice actors are great, including Jason Long as Spyro. Took a while for him to grow on me, and I don't think he quite matches the character, but he's good enough. I also don't mind some characters' accents or actors being different to the games.

Neutrals:

- Theme song.

OK, so it does have something to do with Skylanders in Episode 12.... for maybe 8 seconds


It still sounds like it was made by an AI though.
- Intro. It just seems lazy - still images plastered with bright lights and lens flares to simulate some kind of movement or animation. I wouldn't say no to taking parts of the episodes and showing the Skylanders off a bit, rather than just listing them.
- It living up to the Academy part of the title. I get it's meant to be a more domestic comedy, but I'd appreciate some new locations besides the Guest Castle and the Forest (the latter is particularly boring....

Even when Crash Bandicoot was in it)


These are the Skylands, there's no end to the amount of places the story can take place in.

And that's about it. Any negatives I had are long forgotten, the series is that good. There are some things the story touches upon and I would've liked to see more of them, but each episode has things that make up for it.

I'm eager to binge on Season 2 tomorrow, and I'll be tuning in for Season 3!

Would really like that, but I honestly miss the "regular" canon more than the Academy one, even if simply because the latter is more recent.

A little harmless spoiler for Johnbonne, couldn't resist after reading ypur impressions about the first season:
the intro does get much better, and I think you'll love the second season if you liked the first one so much. smilie

TBH it’s just me guessing for fun without any evidence...I though to myself that they might promote the show a lot more if they released an app related to it.

It wasn't until the part where he tells his story about how he lost his wings that it occurred to me. And does his gun even connect to a pack? I've forgotten already. As I said before though I'd love to see characters use abilities that are in the game to make it more, umm, authentic? Is that the word?

The theme song sounds like something that would've been popular in 2016 (the year the song released) and the instrumental and melody of the song sounds kinda like Can't Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake and Greedy by Ariana Grande. The lyrics are kinda generic in my opinion but the song is better than like Despacito or Shape Of You.

Sky Barons have magical wings, it's possible they can be deactivated at will, which is how Jet-Vac lost his when he gave them away. His blaster connects through a tube to the pack, which is still there, but I think it's smaller than the ingame one.

Will Nattybumpo be in Academy at some point, perhaps as a villain trying to get revenge on Eon? I wouldn't mind seeing that as Eon's in his physical form in Academy and it'd be cool to see the two face off, or reunite in some other fashion. Perhaps an origin story?

Or has it already been confirmed Eon's mentor is not part of the Academy canon? I found the story scroll in SSA to be rather amusing!

With all the “villian converting” making the continuity a mess anyway, the best way forward may be rebooting the whole series. Kinda hard to make a game when several major Villains have their own figures at this point. Either that or you restrict them to villain only special missions, but that seems like a waste of a programmers time to test. Best just to say “Sorry, they aren’t compatible here.”

Semi-related, Eric Rogers and a few Academy writing staff is working on a “Stretch Armstrong” reboot that is about to drop this Friday. If you wanna support, it’ll be out on Netflix.

I know nothing about it, but I hope it’s good

Well Skylanders was originally supposed to be a Spyro reboot so it won’t make much sense if the past history don’t get acknowledged in any way and the show would be in my opinion the best place to do it because some like me who don’t like Skylanders and are Spyro fans do enjoy Skylanders Academy,even then if it never happen,I will know that Spyro is dead and find another fandom.

That's 3 models used for a single episode. No thanks, I'd rather Eric got charactes for the stories he had to cut.

Or a Season 4 at all, of course.

I've seen a lot of art work, drawn and rendered in 3-D, of the Spyros meeting each other.

Funniest one was Classic Spyro seeing Skyro for the first time, and he tries to find Ripto so Ripto can kill him. smilie

in the skylanders academy season 3.
master eon and the skylanders will choise 2 options:

option #1: to take back spyro's old light from the strykore and to return back on spyro.
option #2: or create a new light for the spyro.

If it gets nominated that means that it got recognized a lot and people like it = which means people would want more of it which means more seasons or at least merch.
