Netflix has set its animated movie and series lineup for the forthcoming Annecy Festival in mid-June 2024.

Last year at Annecy, Netflix had a big showing at the festival, debuting new clips, images, and information about its forthcoming slate of titles, which have now all been released. Among the titles last year included Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, Nimona, Orion and the Dark, and The Monkey King.

The main presentation from Netflix will take place on Wednesday, June 12th, and will feature the majority of the major announcements from the festival. There’ll also be the world premiere of Ultraman: Rising just a few days before its global Netflix rollout plus making of sessions for several projects.
