DreamWorks Animation has created an original new Netflix TV series based on its popular Puss in Boots brand.
The first five 22-minute episodes of The Adventures of Puss in Boots will be available to Netflix members in the US, Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux and France to watch instantly from Friday, January 16th.
New episodes will also be debuting throughout the year.
"Action, comedy, adventure and heart combine with a dazzling visual style to make The Adventures of Puss in Boots both unique and timeless," said Margie Cohn, head of television for DreamWorks Animation. "Puss is a hero for the ages.
"With a cold glass of leche in one hand and his sword in the other, there’s nothing that could get in the way of this swashbuckling hero … except hairballs."
Cindy Holland, VP of original content at Netflix, added: "Each episode is an exciting fantasy adventure, which makes watching The Adventures of Puss in Boots an event the whole family will enjoy."
The DreamWorks Animation line-up on Netflix also includes Turbo FAST and All Hail King Julien, and will soon grow to encompass a new season of DreamWorks Dragons and the adventure-laden DinoTrux.
