Netflix has announced a new children-oriented animated series titled Battle Kitty, which is based on a concept that first originated as a series of posts collectively known as The Adventures of Kitty & Orc on animator Matt Layzell’s Instagram account.
The title character is said to be a small but feisty kitten wearing a pink bow. However, as Layzell’s posts document, Kitty possesses super-strength, powerful intuition, and a great number of other tools that allow it to fend off monsters.
According to Melissa Cobb, vice president of kids & family at Netflix, the show will defy the boundaries of traditional storytelling by embracing an innovative interactive format. Though no detailed information is available as to what that will entail, the streamer claims Battle Kitty will allow kids around the world to navigate their own adventures within Kitty’s expansive universe. They will be able to unlock new paths and layers in a futuristic-medieval world.
