You’ve all heard the story and history of the American Revolution, but you’ve never heard it or seen it so animated America: the movie ready for you. We keep track of everything you need to know about America: The Motion Picture, including the storyline, cast, and Netflix release date.
America: the movie is an upcoming Netflix original animated comedy for adults directed by Matt Thompson (Archer, Playful dingo) and written by Dave Callaham (the Expendables).
The project was first announced in late 2017 when it was confirmed that Channing Tatum would play George Washington. The script was first released in April 2017, where ScriptShadow called it “worth reading” while calling it an “extremely goofy” comedy, saying that it delivers exactly what its audience wants.
America: the movie has been compared to people like family Guy and Paradise PD which should give you an idea of what to expect.
Floyd County Productions is the animation studio behind the film (although we were told that several studios were supported on the project). They are known for projects like Archer, Dicktown and animation of projects like Fargo, The league and Always sunny in Philadelphia.
When is the Netflix release date for America: the movie?
America: the movie will be available worldwide on Netflix from Friday June 30th 2021.
While we are still waiting for the release of a full trailer (probably shortly before the release of the film), we received a small teaser from the Netflix film account on April 27th.
