Jared Pullen said it was meant to be left up in the air. He also said the original plan was to do the same to Malefor, but idk if he was just mentioning very early versions of the story.

On the comic, we've yet to know. The comics never expanded on that, you can't do much with 80 or so pages where you have to explore every major character for a few frames.

Well, I'm certainly excited. Having the dragon lore steal the show could be a double-edged sword, but I'm guessing that a certain chunk of the 13(?) episodes are devoted to that stuff while the usual antics take up the rest of the episodes. Dunno, but it should be a fun time. Whether that's Malefor or just some other dragon villain, it still looks pretty exciting (and miles better than DotD!Malefor).

That image alone gives me an idea that they are going to do the Cynder's dark path with Malefor.


What do you think?

Quick question did anybody see the Skylanders Academy happy birthday to you?
Also I can't get enough of the magma that flows through Malefor.

I saw it, posted the findings in a thread below.

The picture was in an article. Been searching high and low for new ones but seems like Game Informer was the only one to use press pictures.

Edit: Eric confirmed the lava demon dragon is in fact Malefor, something about being "darker than his original design". Yeaaaah Hex probably gave him a good hellfire recently.

Edit2: My guesses on the 3 new VAs:

Jason Ritter - He's Dipper and nobody else, it's hard. I'll say he's a Skylander we've yet to see.
Dee Bradley Baker - He voices WAY too many characters per shlw, but mainly goofy characters. I'll say Hydra.
Jim Cummings - Villains, from genuinely spooky to goofy to whatever the hell Robotnik used to be about. Malefor, fo sure.

Hmm... I'm not sure I'd go with "darker" necessarily. If anything, his color scheme is more vibrant and interesting, though that may be a result of the lighting effects (which are nice considering this season is a apparently a budget show). If anything he feels more... Warcraftian? Like something you'd see in one of Blizzard's animated Warcraft promos, if that makes any sense.

Anyway, I really do hope this does well. I have more or less stopped paying attention to animated kids shows the last several years, and this is the lone exception. So, I'd really love to see Netflix or someone else continue to give this show love. And this is coming from someone who owns none of the games, figures, or merchandise. ^.^

This is how TfB and VV should do... everything. There's something that has been present in the series since the beginning and that the games lack: cohesion. Different types of Skylanders (trap masters, senseis...) with their own roles definded but introduced in the whole picture, vehicles, villains... all the elements of the different games converged in one single background and scenario, as it should be. The games totally failed at this, and that was a main problem at the end.

This is related with another thing the series is doing right way more than the game developers: the lore. Not only of the series and universe in general, but also of the characters. The franchise background is much better and deeper exploited in the new trailer than in the whole series, for God's sake.

If we had only a game with this kind of scheme and focus...

Can't have focus when the series is forced to be NEW SHINY THINGS every game, unfortunately, but David got close by making tie-in comics to fill in holes; unfortunately that got canceled right as he was getting good at it.

Eric said it's a nighttime scene, so his colors are off. That sickly dark purple we see in the fire screenshot might be his actual color.

Golden Queen is Giant sized in the games, though she's still shorter than most of them. Eric also stated Ninjini is still a Skylander; but he said that she and SE might be fighting, so it's possible she's mind controlled or just really mad at being disturbed - the new clip shows them fighting together soon after.

Jason Ritter is listed on the Netflix cast page, yeah.

edit: I say clip and forgot to say which. Very quick appearance in the October lineup video-

You can keep cohesion while introducing new shiny things (i.e. Giants or Swap Force), they just stopped doing it because of "bussiness". "We made the previous stuff useless and irrelevant so you have to buy the new ****". They could have done it right and still money wise, Acti just didn't want to.

Or she's just not a Giant in Academy????

Or maybe she is and having an actual Giant-sized character would seriously breaking the animation team.

Ninjini's bottle is in the shot when he says it too, so unless she was depowered, it's just a smaller model.

That shot is weird tho. He says the Giants while looking at the Super Crusher, then says Swap Force when looking at the bottle, then Imaginators while looking at nothing. I think they forgot a few assets there.

Dunno, that sounds like he's actually getting classes from her(kinda like the Arbor Day comic...?). Eric always said no to definitive relationships in the main cast.

Is it me or do they look younger though? I might have to look for heart medicine if this is an episode about their Junior Cadet days.

I'm all for vehicles flying to get around the fact most of the characters can't fly, but Jet-Vac not having a jetpack is still the most mind numbing decision.

Either way, Sprocket is savage af.
