Things will get off to a sizzling start with the introduction of a new dragon in season 2 of Activision Blizzard Studios’ Skylanders Academy, launching on Netflix on October 6. Cynder, voiced by Felicia Day, is part of a new class introduced in the popular CG series based on the hit videogame franchise.
Skylanders Academy follows the heroic adventures of Spyro (Justin Long), Eruptor (Jonathan Banks), Stealth Elf (Ashley Tisdale), Jet-Vac (Jonny Rees), Pop Fizz (Bobcat Goldthwait) and their team of young warriors as they travel the vast Skylands universe protecting it from villains, like the enthusiastically evil Kaos (Richard Horvitz of Invader Zim fame). The band of heroes train under the watchful eye of Master Eon (Chris Diamantopoulos) learning how to keep peace and protect their homeland.
Along with a new class of cadets, and newcomers Cynder (Felicia Day) and Sprocket (Grey Griffin), season 2 sees Spyro begins a search for information about his ancestors in order to harness and understand his special powers. Meanwhile, Kaos’ quest to bring evil rule to the Skylands realms accidentally unleashes a villain more powerful than anything Kaos or the Skylander warriors have ever faced.
Skylanders Academy also features the voice talents of Norm Macdonald as Glumshanks, Catherine O’Hara as Kaossandra, Parker Posey as Dreamcatcher and Susan Sarandon as Golden Queen. The series is created by Eric Rogers (writer, Futurama).
