Skylanders

Activision has no shortage of big hitter video game franchises, but it's a fairly safe bet that Skylanders and Call of Duty are the biggest successes to come from the company. It seems that Activision wants to continue to hit new heights and has just recently announced that it's opening Activision Blizzard Studios, a company that will focus on adapting Activision's gaming franchises to film and TV.

In terms of concrete plans, Skylanders Academy is the first project the studio will undertake. A kids show aimed at further increasing brand recognition, Skylanders Academy will feature the voice talent of Justin Long, Ashley Tisdale, Jonathan Banks, and Norm Macdonald as Spyro, Stealth Elf, Eruptor, and Glumshanks, respectively. No release window was given, but we can likely expect to hear more about this over the next couple months.

Additionally, the studio has announced its intent to bring Call of Duty to the silver screen. While there aren't any firm plans in place, yet, it seems that movies will be first priority with TV shows being an additional possibility.

What do you think? Is this a good move on Activision's part? Are you interested in anything that's been revealed so far? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
