On Friday, September 16, Amazon Original Kids Series Creative Galaxy, the hit “make-along, create-along” animated art adventure preschool series, is set to blast off for Season Two on Prime Video with all-new episodes.
From Out of the Blue Enterprises, with Angela Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Super Why! Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood) serving as Creator and Executive Producer and Samantha Freeman as Executive Producer, Creative Galaxy fosters lifelong learning and celebrates creative thinking through imagination-inspiring adventures filled with crafts, music, and dance. Samantha Bee (The Daily Show), Jason Jones (The Daily Show), Cloris Leachman (Malcolm in the Middle), Jason Priestley (Beverly Hills 90210), and Brooke Shields (Lipstick Jungle) return to lend their voices in the new season, along with singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb (Jake and the Never Land Pirates), Donovan Patton (Blue’s Clues) and Broadway actress Caissie Levy (Les Miserables).
Young viewers will join adorable alien Arty (Meesha Contreras), and his sidekick Epiphany (Kira Gelineau), as they travel around the galaxy to solve problems using various forms of art. Each vibrant and engaging episode highlights a unique creative medium – painting, music, sculpting, cooking and more – to showcase how art can be found in all different places and in many forms. The interactive stories and unique live-action craft segments designed to help adult viewers recreate the art projects featured in each episode with their kids, inspire children to “go be amazing!” and become idea makers and creative thinkers.
In Season Two, the galaxy expands as Arty introduces audiences to two exciting new art forms – cooking and singing/dancing – with new planets and celebrity hosts: Cooktopia with Chef Zesty (Donovan Patton) and Groovopolis with Melody (Lisa Loeb). In addition, the new episodes celebrate key childhood “milestones” such as a parent’s birthday and losing a first tooth, bringing even more relatable preschool experiences to families everywhere.
