Netflix’s hit children’s animated series ‘Hello Ninja’ is returning for a whole new season of fun and entertainment. The show, which targets preschoolers as its main audience, tells the story of two kids and their pet cat who have magical adventures after they transform into agile ninjas.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new season:
‘Hello Ninja’ Season 3 will arrive on Netflix on July 10.
The series focuses on a curious little boy named Wesley (Lukas Engel), his best friend Georgie (Zoey Siewert), and his orange cat Pretzel. The trio has many adventures while Wesley’s wise grandmother, Baa Chan (Mayumi Yoshida), teaches them lessons about life and the world around them. According to Netflix’s official description: “In their third season, the adventure-loving ninjas learn new katas, meet Wesley’s cousin, Gen and visit Baa-chan’s hometown of Osaka, Japan.”
Lukas Engel is a young actor from Toronto who has been acting since the age of six. He has worked in film, television, theater, motion capture and animation and he voices Wesley on ‘Hello Ninja’. Other cast members on the show include Zoey Siewert as Georgie, Sam Vincent as Pretzel, Mayumi Yoshida as Baa-Chan, Shannon Cha Kent as Mom, and Vincent Tong as Dad.
‘Hello Ninja’ is based on a book of the same name by American author ND Wilson, who has penned a number of books both fiction and non-fiction, and has also worked in film. The series is produced by Wilson and Aaron Rench’s Gorilla Poet Productions, along with Atomic Cartoons. Wilson, Rench, Grace Ledding, Mark Palmer, Jennifer Twiner McCarron, and Matthew Berkowitz serve as executive producers for the show.
A trailer for the new season was released online by Netflix on June 26. The clip shows dragons, a race, and plenty of cuteness to go around. This is clearly going to be a great season both for the show’s audience and their adult caregivers to watch.
