April is round the corner and Netflix has got a slate of fun, fantasy-filled adventures that showcase the power of team work and friendship, for all ages!

Based on Leigh Bardugo’s global bestselling Grishaverse novels, Shadow and Bone gets an adventure-packed series that finds us in a war-torn world. Prepare yourself for the many dangerous forces at play, and how it will take much more than magic to survive.

On to even more dangerous matters, The Serpent is inspired by real events and the series reveals the story of serial conman Charles Sobhraj, played by Golden Globe nominee Tahar Rahim. He teams up with conwoman-girlfriend Marie-Andrée to carry out a spree of crimes across the globe, becoming chief suspects in a series of murders.

The Mitchells vs The Machines is an animated action-comedy about an ordinary family who find themselves in the middle of their biggest family challenge yet – saving the world from the robot apocalypse!

From the studio who brought you the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and The LEGO Movie, this movie boasts of some big names as part of their cast, such as Chrissy Teigen, Conan O’Brien, Maya Rudolph and more.
