When Will The Garfield Movie Be On Netflix

Picture: Sony Pictures Releasing

As the summer rolls around, Sony Pictures Animation has a brand new film lined up based on the beloved cartoon that has been active since the 1970s. The Garfield Movie will hit theaters on May 24th for Memorial Weekend and then come to Netflix in select regions beginning in late 2024. Here’s what you need to know. 

In Mark Dindal’s adaptation of Jim Davis’ characters, Garfield gets swept into a high-stakes heist during a wild outdoor adventure. This marks the third time Garfield has made its way to the big screen following the two live-action movies where Bill Murray voiced Garfield.

Chris Pratt, the king of voiceovers right now, hot off his success with The Super Mario Bros. Movie last year, voices the titular cat himself. Other voices you’ll hear throughout include Samuel L. Jackson, Hannah Waddingham, Ving Rhames, Nicholas Houtl, Brett Goldstein, and Harvey Guillén.

The Garfield Movie will be on Netflix US Later in 2024

Kicking off with the United States, we know the movie will be coming to Netflix via the Sony Pictures first window deal struck back in 2021 and continuing until at least 2025.

While we have seen movies from the distributor come to Netflix on different time scales, they generally arrive around 120 days after their initial theatrical release.

If that’s the case here, The Garfield Movie will be on Netflix in the US around September 21st, 2024. Again, we could see it drop slightly sooner or slightly after. We’ll keep you posted on this article and in our coming soon section.

  • European regions: The movie will arrive sometime in 2025.
