April is almost here and that means new movies and TV shows are making their way to Netflix very soon. The popular streaming service is constantly adding new content for subscribers to enjoy, but the slate of what's to come is only revealed on a monthly basis. On Wednesday morning, Netflix finally unveiled the full roster of movies and shows being added to its lineup over the course of April 2021, and there is a lot in store.
If you're into animated movies, Netflix has two big originals on the way in April. First is Arlo the Alligator Boy, a musical that is set to arrive on April 16th. Just two weeks later, on April 30th, Netflix will be releasing Sony's The Mitchells vs. The Machines, from producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Perhaps the most anticipated new project coming to Netflix in April is the live-action TV adaptation of Shadow and Bone. Based on the fantasy novels of the same name, Shadow and Bone will be arriving on April 23rd. Other incoming titles include Stowaway, Thunder Force, and The Circle Season 2.
