Netflix to debut 'DreamWorks Dragons' in 2015

Netflix's push into children's programming continues with 'DreamWorks Dragons.'
'DreamWorks Dragons' will premiere on Netflix in spring 2015.

Netflix will add "DreamWorks Dragons," a cartoon based on the "How to Train Your Dragon" films, to its growing roster of children's shows.

"DreamWorks Dragons" will premiere on Netflix in spring 2015. It is the second show DreamWorks Animation is making for Netflix. Last year, Netflix premiered "Turbo Fast," a spinoff of the animation studio's movie "Turbo."

Actors lending their voices to "DreamWorks Dragons" include Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Netflix and DreamWorks Animation struck a deal in 2013 for a dozen TV series. Netflix has been aggressively going after children, and earlier this week struck a deal for animated films from Sony, including "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2."
