You’ve all heard the tale and history of the American Revolution, but you’ve never heard it, or seen it animated quite like what America: The Motion Picture has in store for you. We’re keeping track of everything you need to know about America: The Motion Picture, including the plot, cast, and Netflix release date.
America: The Motion Picture is an upcoming Netflix Original adult-animated comedy movie directed by Matt Thompson (Archer, Frisky Dingo), and written by Dave Callaham (The Expendables).
The project was first announced in late 2017, when it was confirmed that Channing Tatum was attached to play George Washington. The script was first put out back in April 2017 where ScriptShadow dubbed it as “worth a read” while calling it an “extremely goofy” comedy saying that it delivers exactly what its audience wants.
America: The Motion Picture has been compared to the likes of Family Guy and Paradise P.D. which should give you an idea of what to expect.
Floyd County Productions are the animation studio behind the movie (although we’re told multiple studios assisted on the project). They’re known for projects such as Archer, Dicktown and providing animation to projects like Fargo, The League and Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

A modern and zany retelling of the history of the American Revolution, including a chainsaw-wielding George Washington, beer-chugging Sam Adams, centaur Robocop and freedom. Lots and lots of freedom.
