Netflix shares news Analyst upgrades stock from ‘underperform’ to ‘buy

Kids and Family content is such a massive part of Netflix with almost 60% of members signing in for it each month.

From the CG of Kris Pearn's The Willoughbys to the 2D style of Nora Twomey's My Father's Dragon, the slate includes a variety of animation styles.

Netflix is making a big play for animation with today's announcement of six new projects across film and TV-but sitting at the intriguing heart of that is a new limited series from Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez that aims to turn Latin American folklore into a new fantastical epic.

Rounding out the new series slate is Maya and the Three (pictured), which is set against a mythical Mesoamerican-inspired backdrop where a story unfolds about a warrior princess on a quest to find a trio of fighters to help save the world of men and gods. It is co-written and co-executive produced by Silvia Olivas (Elena of Avalor).

Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures are producing together with Paul Young of Cartoon Saloon (The Secret of Kells, The Breadwinner) and Tomm Moore.

The film is based on the series of children's books by Ruth Gannett Stiles about a young boy, Elmer Elevator, who runs away to Wild Island to rescue a baby Dragon. Alan Moloney and Ruth Coady of Dublin-based banner Parallel Films will serve as executive producers alongside Cartoon Saloon's Gerry Shirren. Smart Wheels. It follows the adventures of kid vehicle Cory Carson as he navigates the winding roads of childhood in Bumperton Hills.

Melissa Cobb, the VP of kids and family at Netflix, remarked: "We know that there is no one type of family".

"The programming is created to meet the tastes of every member of the family - from preschoolers to kids to parents and their children together so that families everywhere can find something that fits their unique DNA", Netflix's press release said.
