Netflix and DreamWorks partner to bring three new exclusive animated shows in 2014

Netflix has pioneered the movement of releasing original media content that is distributed in a non-traditional manner. In 2014, Netflix continues this strategy by adding new original content aimed at children. Netflix will be partnering with DreamWorks and will be adding three original animated series that will utilize established characters from its highly acclaimed animated films. Puss in Boots, which garnered popularity in the Shrek series and having starred in a self-titled spin-off movie, will now have his own series. From the world of Madagascar, King Julien will take center stage as he makes his debut in his first series. Veggie Tales, a long running series will unleash a new story arc entitled "Veggie Tales in the House". Lastly, Turbo FAST (Netflix and DreamWorks first original animated series) will return with a second set of original episodes that will debut in April. 

Reaching out to DreamWorks, Puss in Boots and King Julien will not be voiced by their original voice actors (Antonia Banderas and Sasha Baron Cohen) and will instead be replaced by new talent. DreamWorks was not able to elaborate on who the replacement voice talents would be. Puss in Boots, King Julien, and Veggie Tales will release in late 2014 and Turbo FAST will release in April.

I'd like Netflix more if I could use it, they're really in a market (video) that takes forever to expand into new markets because of the licensing hell going on. Shame people can't get global deals for content done it seems.

Ehh enough with kids crap how Funimation that is what kind of anime people want like Attack on Titans or Elfen Lied. Seriously Netflix is becoming like blockbuster censoring everything because parents are lazy.

if anything Netflix needs less anime, I dont want that silly #### clogging up my page.

I enjoy a lot of animation movies like Sherk, Cars...what whatever else. Not just for kids anymore but adults as well as there are hiden meanings/adult things in these movies that adults get, but kids are oblivious to.

The kids section is clogging most of Netflix page I remember the days when Netflix had variety now they are just money hungry so all they add is kids junk, I sometimes wonder if kids are paying Netflix bills.

What annoys be is they will release a sequal of a movie, but not the first one! Like Ghost Busters...it was a while before they released the original one and they only had the 2nd. That is what annoys me the most.

Understandable but I am into Vampire Hunter D, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Elfen Lied and Attack on Titans (thank god Netflix added Attack on Titans) we need more of this type Anime's there is enough in the kids section for adult there is barely anything now. Other genres I enjoy are Horror, Foreign and Sci-Fi there use to be a lot now all I see is Asylum Studios junk like Sharknado.

These is another issue with Netflix they always have the sequels and never the first part like Puppet Master I believe they have the fifth part how about the first four which is available on Hulu on Nightmare on Elm Street they added part 2 where is part 1.


They should just bring back the old deal streaming+DVDs for $9.99 or streaming+DVDs/blu rays for $11.99, now those were the good days because it gave us of a option what is not streaming. At the moment even though price went up for Amazon Prime they have so much more to offer.
