What are the must-watch animated movies on Netflix in December 2022? Netflix’s December Calendar includes two original animated features: the CG musical Scrooge: A Christmas Carol and the stop-motion Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio. The former is created by Timeless Films in collaboration with Axis Studios, and its debut trailer was released last month. The latter is one of the year’s most anticipated animated blockbusters and a strong contender for best animated feature at the 2017 Oscars.

Top 5 animated movies on Netflix in December 2022

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

We’ve all heard Carlo Collodi’s classic Italian story about a puppet who aspires to be a real boy. Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio, on the other hand, promises to give us a version of the narrative we never imagined. First, del Toro pushes the boundaries of what a stop-motion film can look like. The artists that brought Pinocchio to life are so vital to the film that they are acknowledged alongside voice actors.

Then, in del Toro’s adaptation, there are additional characters like Podestà (voiced by Ron Perlman), a fascist officer who turns Pinocchio into a soldier. The filmmaker never shied away from discussing politics in his films, and fascism can be found in the background of fan favorites like Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth. Nonetheless, it will be fascinating to see how del Toro twists the fairy tale into a drama about Nazism.

Scrooge: A Christmas Carol

Every holiday season, a new film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is released in Hollywood. It couldn’t be much different in 2022, so Netflix is releasing Scrooge: A Christmas Carol, a new animated version of the famous story about a grouchy man forced to reconsider his life after being visited by ghosts on Christmas Eve.

Scrooge: A Christmas Carol, starring Luke Evans as the cold-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge, attempts to modernize the ancient story by incorporating original music into the animated film. The film also borrows from recent animated hits like The Mitchells vs. the Machines by layering some attractive 2D effects on top of the 3D animation, giving this version of the story a distinct aesthetic.

Blippi Wonders: S2

Each episode of BLIPPI WONDERS takes toddlers on a fun, joyful, learning trip. Blippi is always curious about anything and then seeks the answer from an expert. TABBS, his robot companion, his smartwatch, and the Blippi-mobile assist him. Blippi communicates his enthusiasm and gratitude for the knowledge he’s gained, frequently rehearsing new vocabulary phrases along the way.

While the show is educational, it is also lacking in diversity. Its short run duration makes it easy to watch and helps to keep young viewers’ interest.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 1 was a solid start to this new “behind closed doors” adventure starring Jolyne Kujo, the franchise’s first female protagonist. It moves the tale forward at a great pace and includes engaging secondary characters and villains. It spends time fleshing out its side characters and introduces a slew of new ones who will leave an impression – or make you question humanity.

LEGO Friends: Heartlake Stories

Lego Friends is one of the animated movies on Netflix in December 2022 based on the characters and play sets from the Lego Friends toy line, therefore it serves the dual goal of amusing children while also advertising merchandise. Five powerful, big-hearted teen females serve as role models for the importance of friendship.

In each narrative, social rivalry and other difficulties occur, but the girls overcome them in ways that highlight teamwork, responsibility, and individuality. Despite these encouraging sentiments, this somewhat sluggish series feels more like an extended commercial than a serious competition for children’s attention.
