Last week we had the pleasure of attending a media event with Netflix at the fabulous Opus Hotel in Vancouver. The kids were treated to goodies, arts, and crafts, a yummy lunch and best of all, we learned about Netflix’s newest feature which enables kids to be in the director’s seat!
“Interactive Storytelling on Netflix allows children to be in complete creative control of what their characters end up doing and saying by giving them the ability to choose from multiple paths for their favorite characters to play out on screen. With so many endings and choice points, kids will be able to watch the same title over and over, without hearing or seeing the same exact story – a gift of constant discovery for them, and reprieve for mom and dad!”
“Netflix is the first to offer something like this on a global scale with three brand new titles, starting with Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, which is globally available on iOS and TV devices, followed by Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, and Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout later this year.”
Want to see Interactive Storytelling in action? Check out the trailer for Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale!
During the event, the kids were shown how to use interactive storytelling.
Charley couldn’t wait to try!
Thank you for the fab time Netflix! My girls love being in the director’s seat and being able to choose what happens next. What a great innovative way to help children make their own decisions, which fosters independence. It’s also a great way for parents to feel less guilty about their kids watching too much tv simply knowing the show is interactive.
Now we just need an adult version so I can change the endings on all the shows and movies that don’t have a happy ending! LOL
