Genius Brands International announced the spring 2021 premiere of its new kids’ animated series, Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, on Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime joins Alibaba Group, which will launch the series in China on its video streaming platform for kids, Youku.
“Years ago, Stan Lee and I spoke of such a project, and I’m excited to finally bring great storytelling to kids around the world, which will also promote lessons of health, exercise, fitness, and anti-bullying,” Schwarzenegger commented in a press release.
