Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts
Season 2 Analysis
An analysis of every notable thing we had to say about Season 2 of Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts.
In the second season, Kipo seeks to rescue her people after they are captured by Scarlemagne, and also discover the origin of her mute powers. Kipo learns she was experimented with mute DNA by her parents before her birth, turning her into a half-human, half-jaguar hybrid. She also learns about Scarlemagne's tragic past and his ties to her family, and that her mother Song, previously thought to be deceased, is actually the mega monkey who destroyed her burrow, mutated as a side effect from her pregnancy with Kipo and mind-controlled by the manipulative Dr. Emilia. Kipo starts to lose control of her abilities, putting her at risk of transforming into a mega jaguar permanently, but she is able to regain control with help from her friends and family. She defeats Scarlemagne and frees Song from her mind control, but meanwhile Dr. Emilia has managed to turn most of Kipo's people over to her side and plans to reverse all mutes back into normal animals so human civilization can rise again.
