Despite it falling just short of making our most anticipated 2020 animated films, The Willoughbys had our interest thanks to its affiliation with streaming giants Netflix. We were smart to do so as Netflix has proven with the stellar Klaus (and hundred more of their other original animated content) that its involvement usually produces quality. We see a glimpse of this quality with today's reveal of The Willoughbys' first trailer:
The Willoughbys Synopsis
Convinced they’d be better off raising themselves, the Willoughby children hatch a sneaky plan to send their selfish parents on vacation. The siblings then embark on their own high-flying adventure to find the true meaning of family. Starring Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski and Ricky Gervais.
Does Netflix have another Oscar Nominee on their hands? Hard to tell from the first trailer but, it does look like a fun watch and, one to keep an eye on.
The Willoughbys will make its Netflix debut on April 22.
