Welcome to our huge preview of Netflix’s upcoming movie slate of Original titles. We’ll feature some of the biggest new movies on Netflix in 2023 and beyond.  

The Netflix Original movie library has ballooned in recent years with stories from around the world being told on Netflix, and there’s plenty more to come.

There continue to be hundreds of upcoming movies on Netflix, and below is our attempt at listing all of the biggest movies due to release in the coming years.

Now it’s important to state this isn’t every movie in development. We don’t think we’ve even covered half of the movies on their way. Also, we’re only going to feature predominantly English-language titles for the sake of not making this list last forever.

For the movies that are still to come in 2022, check out our fall 2022 preview here.
