It is again a light month for new animation streaming content, but relative to the pre-streaming era, there’s still plenty of animation to keep viewers busy.
While most of the new animation skews toward preschool and children, there’s a handful of offerings for older audiences, such as Netflix’s Human Resources and Hulu’s Dicktown. We’re also intrigued by the hybrid concert special Adam by Eve: A Live in Animation (Netflix), featuring new songs by Japanese artist Eve and segments directed by Hibiki Yoshizaki (Me!Me!Me!) and Waboku (Sion).
The biggest release of the month is, of course, the new Pixar feature Turning Red, which is debuting exclusively on Disney+. It’s the third straight Pixar original to be released straight-to-streaming. The strategy has worked well for Disney – not only have the Pixar films generated strong viewership on Disney+, but they’ve helped placate subscribers who have noted that Disney’s service has limited offerings compared to other streamers.
