Several of the series are based on recent films, including “Trolls,” “The Boss Baby,” and “Captain Underpants.”
The first, “Trolls: The Beat Goes On” will hit the streaming service on January 19, 2018. That show will follow where last year’s film left off at Troll Village. It is a musical series with original songs written by Alana Da Fonseca. Skylar Astin (“Pitch Perfect”) and Amanda Leighton (“This Is Us”) will provide the voices of Branch and Poppy.
“The Boss Baby: Back in Business” will continue the adventures of Boss Baby and his big brother Tim. There is no release date yet.
“The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants” is based on the book series, rather than a continuation of the film. The series tells the tale of George and Harold, best friends who enjoy pranks, particularly aimed at their school principal. Things get crazy when their creation, Captain Underpants, gets involved. There is no release date, but it will be out in 2018.
“Trollhunters” Part 3 and “3 Below” will both be out in 2018. “Trollhunters” Part 2 is coming to Netflix Friday, December 15.
“Harvey Street Kids” is the story of three best friends, Audrey, Lotta, and Dot. Together, the trio known as the Harvey Girls set about to make every day an adventure.
One of the biggest announcements is the reboot of the 1980s animated series “She-Ra.” The Princess of Power will be brought into the 21st century with a more modern twist. Author and showrunner Noelle Stevenson announced the news on Tuesday via Twitter:
