Netflix is adding a bunch of great new titles today. This Friday, January 8th, the streaming service has made seven fresh movies and TV shows available and what’s more, they’re all originals. There’s new family content, documentaries, international titles, anime and pretty much something to cover all bases. There’s nothing quite as big as yesterday’s Pieces of a Woman – the awards-worthy indie drama – but these newbies are still worth checking out.
First up, animated effort Charming debuts today. Though released in other territories back in 2018 and 2019, it’s only now making its way to the US and it sports a twisted fairy tale narrative in which Prince Charming must go on a quest to find his true love, after becoming engaged to Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Demi Lovato, Avril Lavigne and Ashley Tisdale star.
