People Are Encouraging Parents To Watch New Animated Netflix Film With Their Children

A new animated Netflix film is being praised online and people are encouraging parents to watch it with their kids because of its important messages.

The Sea Beast was released by the streaming service on 8 July and centres around a young girl who stows away on a ship on her quest to kill sea monsters.


The film's official synopsis reads: "When a young girl stows away on the ship of a legendary sea monster hunter, they launch an epic journey into uncharted waters - and make history to boot."


While it is technically a kids' film, if viewer reactions are anything to go by, it's so good that it can be enjoyed by both adults and kids alike.

Praising the film on Twitter, one viewer quoted the film: "'They are heroes. But they can be wrong too.' -The Sea Beast (2022)

"What I actually love about animated films are the subtle messages they teach adults, more than to kids."

A second praised it more generally, writing: "I'd really recommend parents & teachers to watch The Sea Beast on @netflix & consider watching it with children.


"I think it's good for adults to watch first as its scary at times, & they know the children who will watch it, but it's wonderful & addresses vital issues for now [sic]."

"The Sea Beast (Netflix) was thoroughly enjoyable," wrote a third. "Even for a couple of adults.

"The dialog was wonderful, characters well written, and a good if not surprising story. Recommended."

"If you're looking for an absolutely fabulous family movie, check out Netflix's The Sea Beast," recommended a fourth.

"It's stunningly beautiful and such a wonderful story. Our family loved it, kids and adults alike."

"The Sea Beast is a welcome surprise," praised a fifth. "In a summer of CG-animated sequels and spin-offs, here's something original that'll delight kids without talking down to them while adult viewers will also be entertained. More movies where Marianne Jean-Baptiste is a gruff pirate please."

"I probably would've watched this movie like 100 times as a kid," praised another viewer. "As an adult there’s more than enough here for a swashbuckling good time."


The Sea Beast currently has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95 percent on the site's tomatometer, and with a PG rating and a running time of an hour and 55 minutes, it looks like a perfect weekend watch.

According to the critics' consensus: "An original animated tale that's often as daring as its characters, The Sea Beast sends audiences on a voyage well worth taking."
