Netflix announces some new cartoons:
Netflix has ordered seven new original series for older kids that will be available beginning this December through 2017.
The new series include Lego’s Bionicle and Friends, and DreamWorks Animation’s new original family sitcom Dawn Of The Croods. For tweens and teens ... stop-motion, action comedy Buddy Thunderstruck, and race-obsessed Greasepit; along with anime-inspired Glitter Force. Netflix also is introducing its first original animated series produced in Latin America. Las Leyendas (The Legends) is based on a successful trilogy of children’s films from the Mexican animation studio, Ánima Estudios. ...
Okay, the Croods thing isn't exactly super fresh news, but the larger point is: Netflix is ordering a poop load of various types of animation. Some of it is under Guild contract, and some isn't, but the more animation that gets made, the more artists get employed.
And there is a lot of animation getting made just now ... and into the foreseeable future.
