Making “tracking” his life difficult to find magical items, Daniel catches the attention of the wrong people when he finds a rare artifact and suddenly the fate of the wizarding world hangs in the balance.

Together with their guide to the underworld multiplane, a cynical thousand-year-old demon named Courtney, they will face a zombie mascot, a demon game show host, a sleep-sucking wizard, and the scariest thing of all: their first crush!
  • Kung Fu Panda: Dragon Knight: Jack Black returns to KUNG FU PANDA in the new series KUNG FU PANDA: THE DRAGON KNIGHT. When a pair of mysterious ferrets set their sights on a collection of four powerful weapons, Po must leave his home to embark on a world quest for redemption and justice that finds him partnered with a no-nonsense English knight named Wandering Blade. Together, these two mismatched warriors embark on an epic adventure to find the magic weapon first and save the world from destruction — and they may even learn a thing or two from each other along the way.
  • My father is a bounty hunter: The action-comedy series follows the toughest bounty hunter in the entire galaxy, a man with razor-sharp skills but also secrets – his family on Earth has no idea what he does for a living. So when his two kids accidentally hitch a ride into space and crash into his newest mission, they discover that their average Dad job isn’t boring at all. Dodging dangerous aliens and laser combat galore, this family bonding time goes to extremes. Wait till you find out…
  • Prime Sonic: A 24-episode animated adventure for kids, families and longtime fans harnesses the brand’s keystone and features “Blue Blur” video game fame in a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse lies in his gloved hands. Sonic’s adventure is more than just a race to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption.
  • We Lost Our Humans: An interactive comedy adventure about two indoor pets, a cat named Pud and a dog named Ham, who wake up one day to find that all humans have apparently disappeared from planet Earth! Desperate to find their owners, these two pets venture out into the world for the first time to discover strange mysteries, meet strange creatures and maybe save the universe along the way…

“We wanted to create a safe and trusted space where your kids can relax, play, learn, and explore with their favorite characters,” said John Derderian, Vice President, Animated Series in a press release. “This extends beyond our gigs to our easy-to-use parental controls like pin protection and kids activity recaps to help caregivers make the right decisions for their families.

“As a father of a four-year-old son and two-year-old daughter, I love seeing the world through my children’s eyes and sharing new experiences together. Sometimes that means throwing a dance party or solving puzzles. Sometimes that means snuggling together to watch their favorite new show.

“My kids are passionate about the limitless ability of animation to conjure up worlds that defy reality, while introducing characters that feel as real as they are. So I can’t wait to see our new series and characters capture their hearts, and the hearts of our young viewers at the whole world, then.”
