Obviously there’s still the TV and Netflix cartoons like Big Mouth and Rick and Morty that everyone seems to love, but as for feature films, you really don’t get much in the way of the old fashioned way of animating.
There was The Princess and the Frog and parts of Into the Spider-Verse, but now there’s something else that people are calling one of the best animated films in recent years.
Klaus on Netflix is the film in question, and straight from the horses mouth it’s described:
“After proving himself to be the worst postman at the academy, a postman is posted to a frozen town in the North where he discovers Santa Claus is hiding out.“
Have a watch of the trailer…
The film features Jason Schwartzman as the lead rubbish postman, who’s made to move to the Arctic Circle to start a post office. When there, he comes at odds with J.K. Simmons’s Klause, and the two begin to form a friendship that both helps out the broken town they live in, and see’s the postman change for the better.
The animation style isn’t too dissimilar from Into the Spider-Verse, but leans more towards classic animation, the likes of which we grew up with… unless you’re like four or something.
The man behind the film, Sergio Pablos, worked on the likes of The Hunchback on Notre Dame and Tarzan; two of the most visually striking films in the animated Disney archive, so you know that this is going to be good.
It does seem like Netflix is the place to be this Christmas, as the streaming service have recently had their secret Christmas movie codes revealed, meaning you can have all of your Christmas film in one place… Christmas.
Basically, to stop you scrolling forever, you can input these codes into Netflix and enjoy the fun.
To use the codes, you’ll annoying have to do it on your computer and stick the codes at the end of the URL. www.netflix.com/browse/genre/blahblahblah.
Obviously you need to get rid of the blahblahblah bit and replace that with one of the many codes.
Check out all of the Christmas films streaming on Netflix this year right here.
