I might not be the biggest fan of original Netflix productions, but when it comes to children programs on Netflix, the original productions are great.
Recently I have been watching three different original Netflix productions for kids; Hilda, Trollhunter, and Robozuna. What I have discovered watching these series is that Netflix is doing great producing content for kids in the 7-15-year-old age group. Kids in this age group, and especially boys, love robots, action, transformers, and cars. All the three mentioned TV series fit into this category, and maybe especially, Robozuna.
The first season of Robozuna consists of ten episodes. Here we follow Ariston, a young guy who takes part in the Robozuna competition with his robot Mangle. But, it is so much more than just a competition, because there is a large political scheme above it all, and Ariston has to take part in fighting against the evil forces of the empire.
Robozuna – or maybe Star Wars for kids?
Many people have commented on the resemblance between Robozuna and Star Wars, and that might be true. There are quite a lot of similarities, and the constant fight and battles between good and evil are similar. The story takes place in a universe that also reminds us of the Star Wars universe, making it even closer. So, maybe this is a way of making your kids ready for watching Star Wars together with you?
But, since Robozuna contains quite some violence, fighting, and battles, you better watch it together with your kids first to see how they react and how they like it. You might also want to speak to them afterward to hear how they liked it, what they think of the characters, and see if they actually understand what’s going on.
Watch Robozuna on Netflix
Robozuna is a Netflix original that premiered on Netflix in October 2018. You can watch it on Netflix all across the globe, and it is also dubbed into lots of native languages, meaning you might be able to watch it in your native language as well (if that isn’t English).
I find Robozuna to be a great series for a bit older kids, especially for boys who want action and who love robots. What do you think?
