There are a bunch of new animated announcements from Netflix which we will look at one by one, with the first being In Your Dreams an animated comedy adventure about siblings and family. So the story has Stevie and Elliot, who are siblings, travelling into the world of dreams to find The Sandman to help them save their parents’ marriage. Now this seems like they might try to use their parents’ dreams to help them stay together? We don’t know, but that could be the idea, the only problem is that the kids are total opposites, so they might have a hard time working together to accomplish their goal. Based on the last line of the synopsis though, it feels like the parents maybe don’t stay together, but the siblings learn to live with it, or that is a little bit of a distraction and the movie will go another way totally.
We love that In Your Dreams is going to tackle how kids feel when things are going well for their parents’ relationship, as many kids can struggle with that. Hopefully, this movie is fun, but also helps deliver an important message at the same time. While we only have the one screenshot so far, we do get a look at the kids and maybe The Sandman.
We should be able to stream In Your Dreams sometime in 2024 on Netflix, and we are looking forward to seeing how the story plays out.
Coming in 2024
