Netflix officially upped the ante by releasing a choose your own adventure story with Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale from DreamWorks Animation Television.
Now kids can not only watch their favorite program, they can control it. This standalone episode presents various choice points to viewers, granting children complete creative control over some of their favorite DreamWorks characters.
When Puss is sucked into a magical book of fairytales, he must get to “the end” of all the stories in order to escape. But the dastardly and mysterious Storyteller tries his best to make Puss’s journey difficult, using Puss’s friends as fairytale characters and offering him (and viewers) a series of choices that dictate the direction of the story. The viewer must eventually choose between two main storylines – Sinbad the pirate and the Evil Queen – that lead Puss through different adventures and ultimately two distinct endings to his story.
Netflix will also release another interactive show, “Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile,” on July 14.
