Interactive Storytelling Now on Netflix

Interactive Storytelling Now on NetflixHave you ever been watching a show with your kids and thought, “I would have Puss in Boots kiss the Queen instead of shaking her hand!” Well, now you can do that with the new Interactive Storytelling on Netflix. The first interactive “branching” narrative episodes are Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, where Netflix members are in control of how the stories unfold. Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale launches globally today, Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile is coming soon on July 14, and the third branching narrative Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout is in the works, coming to Netflix next year.

Imagine Choose Your Own Adventure books intertwined with internet television. The viewer gets to decide where to take the story next. With Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, the boundaries of traditional storytelling are being pushed with the opportunity to create non-linear adventures for the beloved Puss and his friends in San Lorenzo.  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 fairy tales, 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.

To choose your epic adventure you can use your remote or if you are on a mobile device you just tap the screen with the option you want. Here is a look at all the different options that your child can pick for the story. It’s not a simple 4 options and you are done. The story goes all over the place so you could watch this one episode a bunch of times and change the story up in lots of creative ways. Here is a look at the new Interactive Storytelling on Netflix!
