Activision Blizzard’s popular Toys-to-Life game has reached millions of people across the globe and sold even more figures at that across multiple platforms, and now Skylanders is expanding even further with its own animated series which is currently in development. The name of the Skylanders TV show is Skylanders Academy, starring some big names such as Justin Long, Jonathan Banks, Norm Macdonald, and Ashley Tisdale.
Activision Blizzard announced today that through their new TV and film studios, aptly named Activision Blizzard Studios, they’ll be producing the series for Skylanders Academy as well as other TV shows and films based off of their IP, such as Call of Duty.
CEO of Activision Blizzard, Bobby Kotick, had this to say about the new studio and future development:
“Activision Blizzard is home to some of the most successful entertainment franchises in history, across any medium. With the launch of Activision Blizzard Studios, our engaged fans can now watch the games they love come to life across film and television”
“Activision Blizzard Studios is yet another way we’re celebrating our players and fans, and we expect that our film and television productions will entertain and delight whole new audiences, as well.”
