Netflix has gotten quite the reputation when it comes to releasing new animated films. Due to how easily accessible their films are as streaming services go and how they manage to give a ton of creative freedom to the artists working on their films, Netflix has become a big powerhouse in the animation industry. Now Netflix has another animated film on the horizon, this time a smaller 2-D Animated Musical adventure from Titmouse Inc. known as Arlo the Alligator Boy. The first trailer for the film has been released fairly recently.
The film centers on a young kid named Arlo and as the title would suggest, he is half human, half alligator hybrid. After learning about a long kept secret that he has a father, Arlo decides to leave his home swamp to go to New York City to find his dad. Along the way, he runs into a variety of different colorful characters that assist him on his incredible journey in this bright upbeat musical adventure.
The film certainly seems to very child friendly with a lot of bright wide eyed designs and tons of colors in the background. The 2D Animation does make for an impressive looking movie at the very least thanks to the hard work done at Titmouse. The film is also set to have a series to premiere shortly after on Netflix known as I Heart Arlo. With a series in line and some good first impression with its visuals, Arlo the Alligator Boy, certainly gives the impression that this is another visually unique animated film to look out for thanks to Netflix.
Arlo the Alligator Boy is set to release on Netflix April 16th 2021
