A new trailer debuted via IGN shows Stretch and his super-buddies fighting monstrous enemies and previews how the interactive mechanic will work in your home.

In terms of story structure, Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout doesn’t appear to be as deep as, say, a BioWare video game. But it does seem like the sort of thing that might get young viewers to watch an episode multiple times, which is likely something that Netflix views as valuable.
