Netflix’s reboot of Benji is finally out in the wild and we’ve got everything you need to know after watching the new version of the family classic. Below, we’ve got the full cast list, soundtrack and more.
In case you’re not aware, Benji is a fictional dog character that has appeared in many movies over the year and comes from Joe Camp. He’s appeared in many movies over the years but his popularity was mainly in the 70’s and 80’s. He had a brief reappearance in the early 2000’s but has gone dark ever since. Netflix has now rebooted Benji with hopefully more movies on the way.
Just some more quick facts about the movie. It was first announced in May 2016 and began production in October 2016. The movie also had a budget of $6 million.
Can you watch the other Benji movies on Netflix?
If you’re in the United States or Canada, Netflix dropped a few of the back-catalog starring Benji earlier this month. This includes:
- Joe Camp’s Benji (1974)
- Joe Camp’s For The Love of Benji (1977)
- Joe Camp’s Benji: Off the Leash (2004)
No other regions are currently streaming any of the previous Benji movies.
Full Cast List
Benji has an upbeat soundtrack fit for any occasion which is probably why you’re looking for the song names. We’ve included a full list of music found throughout below plus we’ve also embedded a Spotify playlist so you can take the soundtrack on the go.
- Almost Home – Stephen Bishop
- Long Road Down – Nick Evans Mowery
- I Feel Love – Charlie Rich
- When The Saints Go Marching In
- Blue Jade – Paul Lenart
- I Love My Dogs – Cat Stevens
- Have A Little Faith In Me – John Hiatt
Will there be more Benji movies?
As of right now, there are no plans for future Benji movies. The movie produced by Blumhouse Productions with Jason Blum at the helm has multiple projects in 2018 but beyond that, there are no announced movies. As for the possibility of a second movie, it’s highly likely given the relative cost of the movie and the audience. As for whether it’d be Netflix is unclear. Netflix doesn’t own the license so doesn’t have first dibs so it’d be a case as to whether Blumhouse Productions viewed cinema as a better way of making money than Netflix.
