Last year’s The Boss Baby was a huge movie.
In my household, my kids turned into one of those movies that is on so often that even the grown-ups can recite the dialogue to every scene. It also introduced my daughters to The Beatles, which is an amazing thing in itself.
So, you can imagine their utter delight when I told them I had a surprise for them. A brand new series called The Boss Baby : Back in Business on Netflix!
It’s wonderful that, rather than having to wait years for a sequel in the cinema to a great movie, a whole series of new material is already ready to stream!
And The Boss Baby isn’t the only movie to have expanded it’s story online. Earlier this year, Netflix launched Trolls : The Beat Goes On!, the follow up to 2016’s mega-music troll-tastic Justin Timberlake / Anna Kendrick.
In fact, there’s already two series available, and the quality is very high. The true test is the kid test, and they loved it.
Also on Netflix in TV form is Home : Adventures with Tip & Oh.
It’s been three years since Jim Parsons, Rihanna and Steve Martin starred in Home. It was a heart-warming, original tale with a catchy soundtrack. Now, the story is continuing with multiple series on Netflix!
An example of a hugely successful transformation from big screen to small are Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon stories.
Both the movies are big favourites of mine. I think they have a lot of heart, and are genuinely moving and fantastically entertaining.
It’s no surprise then that they’ve spawned THREE different TV series – Race to the Edge; Legends; and Dawn of the Dragon Races.
I’m going to cheat a little with the last one. Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is not an expansion of the Jim Carrey movie, but more of a remake based on the very successful and delightfully grim books.
With series 2 set to join us, this Tim Burtonesque dark tale revels in it’s black humour, and is probably more suited to a slightly older child than the other content detailed above. Like all of the content mentioned above, it’s available right now on Netflix.
Catch Neil Patrick Harris playing the role of his life as Count Olaf torturing those poor Baudelaire children…
