Skylanders Academy premiered on Netflix back in October. After the show appeared, it came as somewhat as a surprise that Crash Bandicoot was in, and even had his own voice.

GameSpot caught up with Skylanders Academy showrunner Eric Rogers to talk about giving the character a voice. He also touched on the mixed reaction and why the news of Crash’s involvement wasn’t talked up beforehand.
