Right now, we’re going to talk about 21 of the best family and kid-friendly movies on Netflix that the whole family can watch together while relaxing.
Back in the Crib, Boss Baby
The Boss Baby: Back in the Crib is the story of a family headed by Ted Templeton, who, after being wrongly accused of a corporate crime, changes back into the Boss Baby and goes undercover with his brother, Tim, pretending to be one of his children.
It’s a spin-off of the Boss Baby series. Theodore Templeton is accused of embezzling money and has to live with his brother Tim, his two nieces, and his old Boss Baby persona.
Ted Templeton Jr. is sitting in a swivel chair instead of where the DreamWorks Animation logo used to be. Tina jumps up on the chair and spins it while Ted is on the phone. It was made by Netflix, and the first episode came out on May 19, 2022.
In 2022, Chris Williams and Nell Benjamin wrote the screenplay for his computer-animated adventure movie The Sea Beast, which he produced with Jed Schlanger.
The voices in the movie are done by Karl Urban, Zaris-Angel Hator, Jared Harris, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. It tells the story of a man who goes looking for sea monsters and an orphan girl who joins his crew to find the elusive Red Bluster.
After something goes wrong, the hunter and the girl become friends with the creature. Before it came out on Netflix on July 8, 2022, the movie was only shown in a few theaters on June 24, 2022.
On November 7, 2020, the movie’s name was changed to “The Sea Beast.” The animation was done by Sony Pictures Imageworks in Vancouver. Mark Mancina wrote all of the music for the movie.
Apollo 10 1/2: Growing Up in the Space Age
“Apollo 10+1: A Space Age Childhood,” an American animated coming-of-age drama coming out in 2022, is mostly based on the early years of writer, director, and producer Richard Linklater.
It takes place in the time before Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. Glen Powell, Jack, Zachary Levi, and Josh Wiggins are some of the actors in a made-up story about a fourth-grader who becomes the first person to step foot on the moon.
If there are any older people in the area who remember watching space launches on TV, they should all get together to watch this.
In an animated story, director Richard Linklater shows the 1969 moon landing from the point of view of a 10-year-old boy. He did this by drawing on his own memories.
It was first shown at South by Southwest on March 13, 2022. On March 24, 2022, it was shown in a few theaters, and on April 1, 2022, it was first shown on Netflix. People liked the way it was written, how it looked, and how it made them feel nostalgic.
The Munster family

The movie The Loud House
The Loud House Movie is a joint project between Netflix and Nickelodeon. It is based on the Nickelodeon sitcom The Loud House and follows a strange family that moves abroad. During a trip to Scotland, the Loud family finds out that one of their ancestors was a royal.
As viewers could have guessed, chaos happens. The Loud House Movie is a funny and entertaining musical that got mostly good reviews when it came out.
The movie is a pleasant story. It has beautiful music, exciting adventures with castles and dragons, and Michelle Gomez as a nanny who isn’t happy. This movie is good for the whole family to watch and enjoy. The movie came out in the US on August 20, 2021, and you can still watch it on Netflix.
In 2022, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios released Turning Red, an American fantasy comedy made with computer animation.
It was written by Domee Shi and Julia Cho. Shi directed it for the first time, and Lindsey Collins was in charge of making it. The digital version of Turning Red came out on April 26, 2022. It was also made available on Netflix on May 3, 2022.
It was put out on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 3, 2022. As of September 2022, Turning Red had made $20,1 million outside of the United States and Canada.
It made $3.8 million in its first weekend from 12 foreign countries. Saudi Arabia ($920k), Poland ($430k), and the United Arab Emirates ($420k) came in second, third, and fourth, respectively.
The American musical fantasy movie Pinocchio came out in 2022. It stars Robert Zemeckis and Chris Weitz.
The live-action remake of Walt Disney’s 1940 animated movie of the same name, which was based on Carlo Collodi’s 1883 Italian novel The Adventures of Pinocchio, came out on September 8, 2022, on Netflix and the Disney+ streaming service as part of Disney+ Day.
Because its 2019 remake of Dumbo didn’t do well at the box office, it was said on October 29, 2019, that Disney might put the movie on its streaming service Disney+.
But after Robert Zemeckis was hired as the director, it was said that “a theatrical release seems more likely.”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was announced on December 9, 2020, that the movie would not be shown in theaters but would instead be shown on Disney+.
If you want to watch a scary movie this Halloween that the whole family can enjoy, NightbooksOne on Netflix is a great choice. Nightbooks was put out by Netflix on September 15, 2021.
The young boy must use all of his storytelling skills to make sure he and his fellow prisoner Yasmin (Lidya Jewett) make it out of the witch’s (Krysten Ritter) New York City apartment alive. The witch is making him tell her a new story every night or they won’t get out.
Nightbooks is a horror book that fills an important gap in the same way that Goosebumps did. In other words, it’s just scary enough for a young person (like Alex!) who might be interested in more difficult material in the future to try it out first.
If you take out all the Netflix originals that people have already seen a hundred times, the only thing left on your list is probably Enola Holmes, which is a great movie that was quickly forgotten in the pop culture debate.
Enola Holmes is based on a series of young adult books with the same name. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown plays the title character, who is Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister (Henry Cavill).
But when Eudoria, the matriarch of the Holmes family (played by Helena Bonham Carter), goes missing, Enola is the one on the case. She follows her mother’s secrets all the way to a huge plot.
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, Netflix bought the rights to distribute a movie that Warner Bros. Pictures had planned to show in theaters. The movie Enola Holmes will come out on September 23, 2020.
The Machines vs. the Mitchells
Everyone in your family will love the movie The Mitchells vs. the Machines. This unique animated movie is about a family who was about to take their daughter to college by driving across the country when the robot apocalypse happened.
They need to work together to save themselves (or the planet), but the father and daughter have trouble talking to each other, which makes this hard.
At its heart, this movie has a beautiful heart and a story about how important communication is. The story is made stronger by a female lead who is very creative and passionate about what she does.
It is silly and heartfelt at the same time. It’s also easy to play again and again. The new title, The Mitchells vs. the Machines, was shown in a few theaters on April 23, 2021. Rianda and Rowe had liked the original title, The Mitchells vs. On April 30, a week later, it was made available to stream.
Jingle Jangle: A Journey Through Christmas
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a brand-new holiday favorite and an instant addition to the canon. It is the first family-friendly Christmas movie since Elf to capture its audience so deeply.
On November 13, 2020, the whole first season of Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey came out on Netflix.
But unlike Elf, which is full of funny scenes and childlike joy, Jingle Jangle’s steampunk-inspired sleigh is powered by melancholy, which is a different and more unusual fuel.
Jingle Jangle is a story about loss, betrayal, giving up on dreams, keeping the house going even after the lights have gone out, and only slowly finding hope again.
Yes, there are catchy and well-shot and choreographed pop-MT bangers. Yes, the design of the show is stunning. Yes, all of the child actors in the movie can’t stop being cute, happy, and joyful.
Beyond the Moon
Over the Moon, an animated movie, was Netflix’s first risky attempt to compete with Disney’s movies. Glen Keane, who used to work at Disney and is now the film’s director, animated The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Tangled.
The Little Mermaid also has a lot of catchy and endearing tunes, brightly colored animation, and a story that is full of Chinese culture.
The movie is about Fei Fei, a 14-year-old Chinese girl played by Cathy Ang. Her mother died four years ago, so she has been living with her now-single father. On October 23, 2020, the movie came out in some theaters and on Netflix.
Chickenhare and the Dark Hamster
The computer-animated adventure comedy Chickenhare and the Hamster of Darkness comes out in 2022. It is based on the graphic novel Chickenhare by Chris Grine.
It was written by David Collard, and Benjamin Mousquet and Ben Stassen were in charge of the direction. Netflix put the movie out on June 10, 2022, in the US and other places.
Miranda, the main character of the new Netflix movie Vivo, is voiced by the perfect actress. Vivo is a kinkajou, also known as a “honey bear.” He lives in the Amazon and is a member of the raccoon family (although Vivo, with his jaunty hat and stylish scarf, is a lot cuter than a raccoon).
In Havana, Cuba, Vivo performs every day alongside Andrés, his owner (Juan de Marcos González). Vivo thinks that his life is perfect because it is easy and always the same.
(The audience can understand Vivo, but when he talks to Andrés and everyone else in the movie, he says cute things and makes no sense.) One day, Marta Sandoval (Gloria Estefan) sends Andrés a letter asking him to sing with her at her last concert in Miami.
Vivo came out in some theaters on July 30, 2021, and on Netflix on August 6, 2021, but only in digital form.
The Last Wish of Puss in Boots
Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation Studios are making a new American computer-animated adventure comedy movie called Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.
The movie is a sequel to Puss in Boots and a spin-off from Shrek (2011). Universal Pictures will put the movie Puss in Boots: The Last Wish in theaters all over the country on December 21, 2022.
Wish Dragon is the newest animated movie on Netflix. It was made by the Chinese company Base Animation and is their first full-length movie. Sony, Tencent, and other companies worked together to make it.
Chris Appelhans is a writer and artist for children’s books. He also wrote the script for the movie, which he is directing for the first time. Wish Dragon is full of things to love.
It’s hard to dislike because it has likeable characters, a cute, if oversimplified, message, and a nice way of showing animation. On January 15, 2021, it was officially added to Netflix.
The Willoughby family
The Willoughbys, a strange adaptation of a Lois Lowry book by Netflix’s Kris Pearn and co-directors Cory Evans and Rob Lodermeier, has a lot of fun going against what you might expect from a typical animated family movie. It was officially put on Netflix on April 22, 2020.
When the plot is about kids trying to “orphan” themselves by sending their bad, abusive, and overly in love parents on a series of dangerous trips, it doesn’t have that polished Disney shine.
It’s hard to go wrong with the funny and often lovely Willoughbys if you’re looking for something a little different or if you have kids who are more interested in darker and weirder stories than those who like their fairytales neat and tidy.
