Netflix has a new holiday special called “Klaus” releasing this holiday season. The animated movie premieres on the platform on November 15th, and centers on Jesper, one of the postal academy’s worst students.
In the movie, Jesper is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle. There he finds feuding locals that hardly exchange words, let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he meets a friendly local teacher named Alva and discovers Klaus, a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. Netflix teased the story adding, “These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.”
Sergio Pablos directed “Klaus” for Netflix, which stars Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones, Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, Joan Cusack, Will Sasso, and Norm Macdonald.
Netflix’s November lineup also includes “American Son,” “I Lost My Body,” “Queer Eye: We’re in Japan,” and “The Irishman.” The December schedule already includes “6 Underground,” “The Two Popes,” “Lost in Space: Season 2,” and “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby.” Netflix has several big projects still awaiting premiere dates, like “The Witcher,” “Green Eggs and Ham,” ” Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings,” “Holiday Rush,” “Holiday in the Wild,” “The Knight Before Christmas,” and “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.”
This week, Netflix also confirmed the extended cast for Amanda Seyfried’s “Things Heard and Seen.” Academy Award Nominees Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman directed the film, with Pulcini and Berman adapting the screenplay based on the book All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage. You can find the original novel right here on Amazon. Joining Seyfried are James Norton, Natalia Dyer, Rhea Seehorn, Alex Neustaedter, and Academy Award Winner F. Murray Abraham. Netflix confirmed that principal photography begins on October 11th in Hudson Valley, New York.
The official logline for that project reads, “A Manhattan couple moves to a historic hamlet in the Hudson Valley and come to discover that their marriage has a sinister darkness, one that rivals their new home’s history.”
