Netflix aims to produce six feature-length animated movies every year. Netflix ‘s co-CEO Ted Sarandos has revealed, with 2020’s roster including one film from India: Gitanjali Rao’s Bombay Rose , the first Indian animated film to open Venice Critics Week.
Netflix aims tol surpass Hollywood’s biggest studios like Disney and Disney-owned Pixar, Sony Pictures Animation, Universal Pictures’ DreamWorks Animation and Illumination Entertainment, and Warner Bros who usually release two to four animated films a year.
Ted Sandros told to Variety, “Our animation ambition right now is not just to step up and be as big as someone who’s doing it today — we’re on a path to be releasing six animated features a year, which no major studio has ever done, on top of the very healthy slate of animated series,” “The way we think about those things is not to say, ‘Well, how do we do it like someone else has done it?’ Because no one’s ever really done most of these functions at the scale that we’re doing, and the only way you could do that is to have a really trusted team, who will make decisions and take them seriously and own them.”
In the past Netflix has released not more than 10 animated films including the anime sci-fi action Blame! in 2017, Christmas comedy-drama Klaus in 2019, computer-animated black comedy The Willoughbys back in April, anime fantasy A Whisker Away in June, and computer-animated sci-fi comedy Fearless in August.
