Peter Rabbit was a popular hit on Netflix around the globe and now the second movie that only hit cinemas earlier this year is now on Netflix in the US just before the holidays.

The sequel sees the return of Peter, Bea, Thomas, and others with Peter unable to shake his reputation as being a bit of a rascal.

Netflix has streamed this award-winning documentary previously (its last tenure lasted until November 2020) but it returns today and is once again, a must-watch.

Never checked out the Focus Feature released doc before? Here’s what you can expect:

“A comedy writer for David Letterman stumbles upon a secret musical world and embarks on a quest to track down all he can about the recordings.”
