Remember the last time you spent time with your kids and watched a movie as a family?
We understand that choosing something wholesome that both kids and adults will love can be challenging, and if you’ve run out of ideas, worry not, because we’ve got you covered!
Here are a few new family-friendly titles on Netflix for you and the kiddos to enjoy. From time-traveling romps that will keep you on the edge of your seat, to touching stories that will have you wiping happy tears from your face:
The Adam Project
Ryan Reynolds plays a pilot who partners up with his younger self (newcomer Walker Scobell) and his late father (Mark Ruffalo) to come to terms with his past while preserving the future in this time-traveling adventure.
This movie has something for everyone in the family to enjoy — fast-paced action, laugh-out-loud moments courtesy of Ryan Reynolds and his wisecracking mini-me, and a heartwarming underlying message; it’s pretty much the perfect balance of comedy, action, emotion, and family values with a dash of nostalgia.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Season 2
I HAVE THE POWER!
Following the cliffhanger from the first season, the CG-animated revival of the iconic 1983 series returns for a second season, with He-Man and the Guardians of Grayskull forging new alliances — and new destinies — to outrun evil Skeletor’s pursuit of power as the fate of Eternos hangs in the balance.

Karma’s World: Season 2
Karma’s World follows the 10-year-old titular character, a lyrically brilliant middle schooler who juggles her rap ambitions and rhyming schemes while using her talent, ambition, and heart to solve any situation. As Karma starts a new job, runs for school president, and attempts to make a difference in her community in Season 2, she faces new obstacles that inspire new songs.
This series is created and executive produced by rapper, actor, and producer Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges.
In this funny reality crafting show, grumpy expert maker Jimmy DiResta — who you may recognize from his YouTube channel as the guy who “makes stuff for a living” — takes kids’ ideas for ridiculous, meaningless creations – like a gigantic T-rex that spits tacos, a pirate pizza ship with a pie-shooting cannon (yum!), and even a unicorn bicycle that farts out glitter – and brings them to life!
