Netflix And Nickelodeon Form Multi-Year Output Deal

Recommended Posts

Netflix and Nickelodeon announced that they have formed a new, multi-year output deal to produce original animated feature films and television series - based both on the Nickelodeon library of characters as well as all-new IP - for kids and families around the world. This marks an expansion of the existing relationship between the companies, which has already brought several popular titles to Netflix, including animated specials Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus. Also forthcoming are specials based on The Loud House and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“Nickelodeon has generated scores of characters that kids love, and we look forward to telling wholly original stories that re-imagine and expand on the worlds they inhabit,” said Netflix vice president of original animation, Melissa Cobb. “We’re thrilled to continue collaborating with Brian Robbins, Ramsey Naito, and the creative team at Nickelodeon in new ways as we look to find fresh voices and bring bold stories to our global audience on Netflix.”

“Nickelodeon’s next step forward is to keep expanding beyond linear platforms, and our broader content partnership with Netflix is a key path toward that goal,” said Brian Robbins, President, Nickelodeon.

He added, “The Nickelodeon Animation Studio is home to the world-class artists and storytellers behind some of the most iconic characters and shows ever made, and our head of Animation, Ramsey Naito, has been building on that legacy over the past year by ramping up development and production exponentially. The ideas and work at our Studio are flowing, and we can’t wait to work with Melissa and the Netflix team on a premium slate of original animated content for kids and families around the world.”

Netflix Animation supports the global community of storytellers across all genres, tones, and techniques. The upcoming 2019 animated slate includes family animated feature film Klaus from Sergio Pablos (streaming November 15), kids animated series Dino Girl Gauko from Japan (streaming November 22), adult animated film I Lost My Body from Jérémy Clapin (streaming November 29), and Fast & Furious Spy Racers from DreamWorks (streaming December 26), among others.

Yeah, I hope something decent comes out of all this. I grew up with some of those properties, back in the 90's, and I hope they don't degrade them trying to adapt them to today's world, with all that social justice BS, racial and gender quotas.

Adapting something to fit the current world is not degrading. It’s smart business.

I don’t want to get into any debate on what you call social justice BS, so I’ll leave it at that. Keep with the times.

Yeah just like the new terminator movie did so well because of smart business, these production heads like Kathleen Kennedy have their heads so far up their own rears the whole studio could be burning to the ground and they will just double down on stupid. I can barely watch anything anymore because of all the forced SJW crap they try to force down our throats. Late night tv has been ruined by this movement, Saturday night live used to be a funny show, I won't even get into Jimmy Kemmel and Stephen Colbert. I'm not against Netflix however I feel they have a good selection and if I don't like one thing I will just click elsewhere.

This is pretty smart.

And you're probably right, it doesn't work with every property and with every audience. Terminator is a clear example and SW is... well arguable since it's pretty much split down the middle at best and all out open war at worst.

What I meant is that if something is made for kids and is keeping with the times it's smart business.
