Welcome to a bumper weekly preview as we will soon be crossing into yet another month and given that, we’ll see a bunch of new and old licensed content coming to Netflix. We’ve also got two huge Netflix Original movies with one expected to be the best-animated movie added to Netflix ever.
As we cross into a new month, you really should fill yourself in on the massive lineup Netflix has for May including some excellent movies, lots of licensed goodies, and more.
You can keep up-to-date on all the new releases on Netflix via our what’s new on Netflix hub with daily recaps and more.
Now let’s take a look at three highlights for this week.
Things Heard and Seen (2021)

The animated feature we referred to above is the Sony Animation pickup The Mitchells vs The Mitchells formally known as Connected.
