Included in the new programming is Irish Netflix original titled My Father's Dragon. The latest animated additions include two films and four series. Some even have some big names attached.

Based on the Newbery Honored children's novels by Ruth Stiles Gannett, My Father's Dragon tells the story of young run-away Elmer Elevator, who searches for a captive Dragon on Wild Island and finds much more than he could ever have anticipated. Created, written and directed by Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life), with Silvia Olivas (Elena of Avalor) co-writing and co-executive producing and Jeff Ranjo (Moana) serving head of story, this limited series is expected to roll out in 2021. He says that he wants the show to be like a "Mexican Lord of the Rings, but hilarious".

The automaker confirms that the next Mazda3 will sit on the Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture, which should improve driving dynamics. We had the chance to drive early prototypes , and they came in both automatic and manual versions.

Variety is reporting that USA streaming giant Netflix has announced six new animated projects, including My Father's Dragon from Nora Twomey and Cartoon Saloon, who were Academy Award nominated earlier this year (for the third time) for The Breadwinner.

Cory Carson (2019), a preschool show from Kuku Studios and executive producers Alex Woo (WALL-E), Stanley Moore (Finding Dory) and Tone Thyne (Wonder Pets!); and Kid Cosmic (2020), a series from Craig McCracken (The Powerpuff Girls). The six new project's will feature a variety of animation styles to suit different family tastes and will give kids and families around the world more of what they love.
