Netflix has announced six new animated projects that will be added to their slate until 2021, including “My Father’s Dragon” (written by “Inside Out” writer Meg LeFauve) and “Go! Go! Cory Carson” (executive produced by “Ratatouille’s” Alex Woo).

In 2019, Netflix will release the series “Go! Go! Cory Carson,” executive produced by Alex Woo (“Wall•e,” “Ratatouille”), Stanley Moore (“Finding Dory,” “Monster’s University”) and Tone Thyne (“Wonder Pets!”), based on the hit toy line Go! Go! Smart Wheels.

In 2020, “The Willoughbys” from writer/director Kris Pearn (“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2”) starring Ricky Gervais, Maya Rudolph and Will Forte will hit the streaming platform, as well as the TV series “Trash Truck,” executive produced by Glen Keane (“The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast”), Gennie Rim (“Dear Basketball”) and Max Keane. The animated series, “Kid Cosmic,” from Craig McCracken (“The Powerpuff Girls”) will also hit the service in 2020.

2021 will see another animated feature film titled “My Father’s Dragon” from director Nora Twomey (“The Breadwinner”) and written by Meg LeFauve (“Inside Out,” “The Good Dinosaur”). Jorge Gutierrez’s animated limited series “Maya and the Three” will also hit the platform.

The six new projects round out Netflix’s previously announced animation slate that includes Guillermo del Toro’s “Pinocchio,” Chris Williams’ “Jacob and the Sea Beast” and Henry Selick’s “Wendell & Wild,” among others.

“We know that there is no one type of family. We embrace all kinds of creators so we can tell unique and diverse stories that resonate with each and every Netflix family,” said Melissa Cobb, vice president of Kids and Family at Netflix. “With our slate of global original animated feature films and series, we want to give families more moments to share the laughter, wonder and connection that comes from being immersed in a great story.”
