Netflix’s Animated Film The Willoughbys Watched by 37.6 Million in First Month
Variety brings word that Netflix’s animated film The Willoughbys has been watched by 37.6 million households during the first month since its premiere, according to the streamer. The Willoughbys is the second original film from Netflix’s animation division (following Klaus) that aims to provide more family content.
Netflix logged nearly 38 million individual accounts to watched at least two minutes of the film, which does not account for the number of Netflix accounts and profiles in a single home, a source familiar with the data said.
In The Willoughbys, convinced they’d be better off raising themselves, the Willoughby children hatch a sneaky plan to send their selfish parents on vacation. The four siblings then embark on their own high-flying adventure to learn how to adapt their old-fashioned values to the contemporary world as they try to find the true meaning of family.
The film features the voices of Grammy nominee Alessia Cara as Jane, Will Forte (Scoob!) as Tim, Vincent Tong (Sausage Party) as the Barnabys, Ricky Gervais (The Little Prince) as Cat, Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6, Connected) as Nanny, Terry Crews (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2) as Commander Melanoff, Martin Short (Frankenweenie) as Father and Jane Krakowski (Open Season) as Mother.
The Willoughbys is written and directed by Kris Pearn (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2). It is produced by Luke Carroll, Aaron L. Gilbert and Brenda Gilbert. The movie is a highly stylized CG animated feature film created by BRON Animation.
