New on Netflix: All the Movies and TV Coming in April

You know the drill by now: as April 1 approaches at full speed, let’s take a look at what’s joining Netflix’s ever-expanding streaming library in the coming month.

One notable headliner is Laika and Travis Knight’s excellent stop-motion/3D animation hybrid Kubo and the Two Strings, which hits the platform early in the month. You can check out our review here to see what we thought of the family-focused film that follows young Kubo’s journey to find his late father’s set of armor. Also joining the fold are two more 2016 Disney films, The BFG and Queen of Katwe, which drop on April 6 and April 25, respectively.

On the original programming front, Netflix dominates next month yet again. The Get Down returns with the second half of its so-far-stellar first season on April 7, followed by Mystery Science Theater: The Return and Bill Nye Saves the World in the following weeks. April also sees a new stand-up special from the incomparable Louis C.K., as well as a host of original films like the Nicolas Hoult- and Henry Cavill-starring Sand Castle and the Nikolaj Coster-Waldau-led Small Crimes.

While classics like Spielberg’s Schindler’s List and Wes Craven’s original A Nightmare on Elm Street also join the streaming service’s rank’s this month, we’ll still have to say goodbye to gems The X-Files, Firefly and The Princess Bride on day one.
