Dumplin

It’s that time of the month again, where Netflix unveil all that’s good coming to the service in the next few weeks.

The star in December’s Netflix crown is Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (7/12/2018), by acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis. It follows the tale of Mowgli, who encounters inherent dangers along the way to discovering who he truly is.

It features an all-starcast including Christian Bale, Cate Blancett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys and Naomie Harris, along with newcomer Rohan Chand as Mowgli.

The highly anticipated DUMPLIN’ (7/12/2018) makes its way onto our screens this month.

It focuses on forthright Texas teen Willowdean Dickson, who enters a local beauty pageant to honour her beloved late aunt and spite her ex-beauty queen mom (Jennifer Aniston). It’s a collaboration with the Queen of Country herself, Dolly Parton, featuring original tracks by the singer.

A new TV show heading to Netflix is the intriguing Perfume (21/12/2018). The six-episode series is focused on a perfumer with a superhuman sense of smell, who kills students at a boarding school to distill their essence and create the perfect scent. It’s based on the 1985 Patrick Süskind novel of the same name and looks scent-sational.

Adding to Netflix’s unscripted portfolio this month will also be The Fix (below, from 12/14/2018). Comedians Jimmy Carr, D.L. Hughley and Katherine Ryan will tackle the world’s woes with help from a rotating crew of funny guests and experts.

Just in time for Christmas, Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable (18/12/2018) – the comedienne’s first special since 2003 – will see the famed talk show host revisit her road to stardom and details the lessons she’s learned along the way.

And lastly, there’s a big one for music fans coming to the streaming giant in December.
Springsteen on Broadway (16/12/2018) is based on the best-selling autobiography of Bruce Springsteen. The documentary will see the legend performing acoustic versions of his music and sharing personal stories with fans.
