Animation Streaming Guide November 2022 Animation Streaming Guide November 2022

Streaming services are putting away the jack-o’-lanterns and rolling out the reindeer in November, as festive favorites make their way back to streaming platforms in the buildup to this year’s holiday season.

Aside from the glut of Santa-themed programming coming to town, The Bad Guys will hit Netflix on November 1 as part of its ongoing deal with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group. My Father’s Dragon, the latest feature from The Breadwinner director Nora Twomey and Cartoon Saloon hits Netflix on November 11 as the month’s highest-profile streaming release.

Disney is going full Mickey in November as the streamer gets ready to launch Mickey: The Story of a Mouse, chronicling the history of the company’s iconic front-mouse. Along with the special, Disney+ is releasing a raft of Mickey series and specials. The streamer is also launching the Zootopia+ shorts it teased at Annecy back in June and The Tatami Time Machine Blues, a rare anime title for the platform.

Criterion is presenting one of its stronger animation line-ups this month, with a quartet of prestige animated features that are part of its focus on Sony Pictures Classics: Satoshi Kon’s Paprika, Sylvain Chomet’s The Illusionist, Ari Folman’s Waltz with Bashir, and Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud’s Persepolis. Additionally, this year’s Oscar-nominated Chilean short short Bestia will be debuting on the platform.

And of course, there are a ton of Thanksgiving and Christmas series, specials, and films heading to almost every platform as the holidays get closer.

A few notes on the list: The list includes announcements for new seasons of existing shows, however we do not list new episode releases of existing seasons, as some streamers roll out new episodes in monthly batches. Streamers also often announce new animation releases mid-month. Our guide only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but, when possible, we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements. The list only includes content that is premiering on the U.S. versions of these services.
