Lois Lowry’s famed children’s book is coming to the small screen! Netflix has just released the animated film, The Willoughbys, based off Lowry’s book, and it’s ready for streaming now.

The newest film by the streaming provider follows the Willoughby family, whose old fashioned values are a little out of place. When they decide to ship off their selfish parents in a quest to raise themselves, the true adventure begins.

The star-studded lineup includes Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski and Ricky Gervais. The CG animated picture and big-name cast makes for a film that is just as entertaining for adults as it is for littles.

To get even more in the Willoughby spirit, Netflix is sharing film-inspired food and drink recipes to make your watch party even more fun.

If that wasn’t enough, parents can also download activity pages, coloring pages, bingo cards, how to draw guides and recipes. Watch The Willoughbys now only on Netflix.
