Every month, Netflix says goodbye to loads of streaming movies and television and adds a slew of new options for subscribers. Each month, we take a look at the incoming films and pick 5 that look like a good fit for family viewing. And you know this already, but keep it age appropriate, just like you would with the chores you dole out.
It’s hard to believe that the first Babe film was released more than 20 years ago. Of course, it still holds up as a great choice to watch with the family, and it’s new to Netflix this month. Also new to watch after the first film is Babe: Pig In The City.
Here’s an underrated sports film from Disney based on the story of Vince Papale, a 30-year-old bartender from South Philadelphia who overcame long odds to play for the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles in 1976. A fun, rewarding watch for your crew on family night.
We waited 13 years for the follow up to Finding Nemo, and Finding Dory was worth the wait. A film that you’ll probably like just as much as the kids, it’s a no-brainer for family viewing, especially since it’s been added to the Netflix library.
The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
The classic book was made into a feature film back in 2005, and now it’s available on Netflix for you and your kids. While it’s tough to live up to the impossibly high standard for those of us that enjoyed the book so much, the film is fun, entertaining, and worth a watch whether it’s your first viewing or the first in a long time.
This animated film from the mid 90’s probably flew under the radar for your family, but the story of an outcast half-wolf who risks his life to prevent a deadly epidemic from ravaging Nome, Alaska is worthy of your time.
