BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Netflix and DreamWorks Animation say they have expanded their current, multi-year deal to include the creation of new family programs, as well as the continued airing of several established, original series.

Among the DreamWorks shows now available via the streaming service in all territories outside of China are The Adventures of Puss in Boots, Dinotrux and Dragons: Race to the Edge. This year, Netflix will also premiere additional DWA offerings such as a reimagining of Voltron, and the new series, Trollhunters, from Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

The latest pact also covers the streaming rights to DreamWorks Animation's feature-film library.

"DreamWorks Animation is synonymous with great storytelling that families around the world enjoy," Cindy Holland, vice president of original series for Netflix, said in a statement. "It's with great pleasure that we expand on an already successful relationship with DreamWorks Animation to bring more premium kids and family television to Netflix members globally."

"This agreement adds to the incredible foundation we've built together with Netflix over a number of years across both film and television," added Ann Daly, president of DreamWorks Animation. "We are proud to work closely with Netflix to continue delivering high-quality programming to audiences around the world."
