Whats new on Netflix: New Netflix original movies November 2021

A Boy Called Christmas

Available November 26

Superheroes are often shaped by their origin story. But what about Santa Claus? Rankin-Bass had a take on how he started climbing down chimneys and delivering toys. But what if his origins were a little more gritty?

Based on the book by Matt Haig and the director of Monster House and City of Ember comes a new holiday fantasy that reimagines the story of Father Christmas. Nikolas is shaped into the jolly old elf after venturing into the snowy white north to find his lost father. Featuring an all-star cast of British greats including Jim Broadbent and Maggie Smith, as well as the hilarious Kristen Wiig, A Boy Called Christmas has all the makings of a new holiday classic. – Jaime Carrillo

What’s new on Netflix: New classic movies November 2021

Addams Family Values

Available November 1

Has a sequel ever been better than a film franchise’s first outing? In the case of the early ’90s Addams Family movies, the answer is an emphatic “yes.”

This sequel brings back the original cast including Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, and the GOAT, Raul Julia, playing their roles to the hilt. A black widow is out to claim Fester’s fortune for herself, but must first deal with the strangest family ever conceived. Comedies from this era rarely hold up, but this one does, in spades. There’s even a memorable summer camp scene that was way before its time. – Jaime Carrillo

What’s new on Netflix: Original series November 2021

Cowboy Bebop

Available November 17

One of the most celebrated anime series of all time only got two seasons and one movie under its belt before it ended. Compare this to other anime series that simply won’t end. Cowboy Bebop may be prized by anime fans because we only got a mere morsel before waving goodbye to bounty hunter Spike Spiegel and friends. However, the space cowboy Is back in a big way.

Cowboy Bebop is going live-action with an all-new series. Starring John Cho as the titular Cowboy, and featuring all the characters fans know and love. The stoic Jet Black, the sexy Faye Valentine, and even the sinister Vicious. But here’s my question: is that awesome theme song coming back? – Jaime Carrillo
