A feisty little Kitty is coming to Netflix and its taking names and destroying opponents. “Battle Kitty” has super-strength and excels at destroying monsters while rocking a pink bow. The new series is an interactive adventure for young viewers from Matt Layzell. The tiny hero is inviting kids everywhere to join the quest to defeat all the monsters on Battle Island and be crowned Champion.
We should warn you that no other warrior has survived to tell the tale of Battle Island, so you’ll have to venture forth at your own risk.
Kitty will give kids the power to explore and navigate their own adventures as they unlock new paths and layers in a futuristic-medieval world. The show is an original animated interactive series, available only on Netflix.
“Netflix has given me the incredible opportunity to help change how young people see themselves. Like Kitty, an aspirational underdog with a big spirit of determination, I want kids who feel small to realize instead that they can stand strong, have friends, and go on to do amazing things,” commented Battle Kitty creator Matt Layzell.
“Battle Kitty is a mirror reflection of Matt himself – an inspiring, surprising, and incredibly fun show that is infused at every turn with huge amounts of both humor and heart,” said Melissa Cobb, vice president of kids & family at Netflix. “This series pushes the boundaries of storytelling in entirely new directions thanks to Matt’s innovative interactive format, which will allow kids to engage in an expansive universe together with the most lovable new underdog, Battle Kitty.”
Battle Kitty originated as The Adventures of Kitty & Orc on Layzell’s Instagram. Layzell rose through the ranks as an animator on Cartoon Network’s “The Amazing World of Gumball,” supervising director on Nickelodeon’s “Sanjay and Craig,” and supervising roles on Cartoon Network’s “Apple and Onion” and Netflix’s “Pinky Malinky.” Layzell, a first-time showrunner, will also serve as an executive producer.
