Debuting tomorrow (Wednesday, April 22), Netflix’s original animated feature The Willoughbys has a heightened, unique style that pays homage to stop motion, while looking hand-made and completely fresh.

Synopsis: Convinced they’d be better off raising themselves, the Willoughby children hatch a sneaky plan to send their selfish parents on vacation. The siblings then embark on their own high-flying adventure to find the true meaning of family.
Directed by Kris Pearn, who also wrote the flick with Mark Stanleigh, the movie’s U.S. English-language voice cast features Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski, Séan Cullen and Ricky Gervais.
