Get Ready for the New DreamWorks Dragons Rescue Riders Series Coming to Netflix on Sept. 27th (Review)

Disclosure: I was provided with screeners of this new series from the folks at DreamWorks and Netflix, to help facilitate my review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Does your family love the How to Train Your Dragon franchise? If so, then you want to be sure to add DreamWorks Dragons Rescue Riders to your calendar for Sept. 27th, as this is when the new DreamWorks Animation series, season 1 arrives to Netflix.

I had the opportunity to screen the first season with my family over the past week, and have to say being fans of the DreamWorks How to Train Your Dragon series, we were hooked within the first few minutes of the first episode beginning. And, from then on, it was hard to stop watching the episodes. We ended up finishing up the first season within the first few days of being granted access, and the girls have since watched these episodes over and over again, half a dozen times. They can't get enough of the new animated Netflix series, and I can't blame them, as my my husband and I found ourselves enjoying them today.

It is hard to find a good kid-friendly animated series that the whole family can watch together, but this is not the case the with the new DreamWorks Dragons Rescue Riders series. Kids and adults will want to sit and watch this series together, and then talk about their favorite parts after. My girls both agree that they wish they were like twins, Dak and Leyla, who the series is based around, as they can communicate with dragons and get to live in Huttsgalor. This brother/sister duo lead a team of five young dragons, and spend their days working together to rescue other dragons and helping people in Huttsgalor. This wholesome series has all the fun adventures and graphic effects you expect to find with How to Train Your Dragon movies, but with a new twist, it makes for a great new series to get hooked on, and watch as a family. My family hopes that this series from DreamWorks will be around for a long time to come, and can't wait for a second season to be announced. I know that once you sit and watch the first episode of the new series with you family, when it hits Netflix on Sept. 27th, you will be saying the same thing. :-)

So, be sure to circle Sept. 27th on your calendar and spread the news of this new DreamWorks Animation series with your family and friends, who love the How to Train Your Dragon franchise. You will all be in for a treat, and love this wonderful family-friendly series coming to Netflix. To learn more about this animated series, head on over to today.
