Kids and Family content is such a massive part of Netflix with almost 60% of members signing in for it each month.

Following the news last month that Netflix is producing Guillermo Del Toro's new animated movie version of Pinocchio, it has been announced that the streaming giant has another six animated projects in the works.

From the CG of Kris Pearn's The Willoughbys to the 2D style of Nora Twomey's My Father's Dragon, the slate includes a variety of animation styles.

Among the new titles is Maya and the Three (2021), a limited series created, written and directed by Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life). The series will feature a female hero, half human and half divine, and will be set in a mythical Mesoamerican-inspired world. Silvia Olivas (Elena of Avalor) is co-writer and co-executive producer, and Jeff Ranjo (Moana) is head of story.

Variety is reporting that USA streaming giant Netflix has announced six new animated projects, including My Father's Dragon from Nora Twomey and Cartoon Saloon, who were Academy Award nominated earlier this year (for the third time) for The Breadwinner. The film will be executively produced by Alan Moloney and Ruth Coady for Parallel Films, alongside Gerry Shirren.

Additionally, Netflix has backed Kid Cosmic, a series from Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken about a boy who dreams of becoming a hero but struggles with his powers once he's actually transformed into one. "With our slate of global original animated feature films and series, we want to give families more moments to share the laughter, wonder and connection that comes from being immersed in a great story".
