Happy April Fools! But it’s no joke that we’re off to a busy start to the month on Netflix UK with the addition of 66 new movies and TV shows to the library. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK this week for April 1st, 2022.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights:


The Bubble (2022) N

Director: Judd Apatow
Genre: Comedy | Runtime: 126 Minutes
Cast: Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Pedro Pascal, Leslie Mann, David Duchovny

In the post-covid era, we can expect a lot of movies and films to focus on the small but incredibly significant period of history that disrupted the entire planet.

During the height of a pandemic, a group of actors and actresses have no choice but to stay inside their hotel and complete the film they’ve been working on.


Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015)

Director: Genndy Tartakovsky
Genre: Adventure, Comedy | Runtime:
Cast: Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi

There are few franchises that have been able to stand out amongst the forces of Disney and Dreamworks, but one of the most beloved in recent years is the stars of Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, collaborating with Sony to create Hotel Transylvania.

In order to stop his daughter Mavis from leaving the hotel, Dracula and his friends attempt to bring out the monster half of his half-human half-vampire grandson.


Kung Fu Panda (2008)

Director: Mark Osborne, John Stevenson
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure | Runtime: 92 Minutes
Cast: Jack Black, Ian McShane, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan

One of Jack Black’s most beloved and fun roles, Kung Fu Panda is one of many fantastic notches in the bow of Dreamwork’s expanding animated library.

Po, a lazy, oversized, kung-fu loving Panda, is unexpectedly chosen to become the prophecized legendary dragon warrior, but it is way out of depth when he begins to train under Master Shifu and the legendary Furious Five. Po is also thrown straight into the deep end when the vengeful Tai Lung wishes to prove his superiority by defeating the dragon warrior.
