Netflix is coming up with really good content on term of original movies, but not only for the grown ups, they are also making some animated movies for the kids.
About the movie
Upon learning that he is from New York City, Arlo, a wide-eyed boy who is half human and half alligator, decides to leave his sheltered life in the swamp and search for his long lost father. The animated musical movie, Arlo the Alligator Boy, will launch Arlo’s journey as he meets a group of misfits who quickly become his new family. Once Arlo’s adventure lands him in New York City, the series, I ❤️️Arlo, will kick off as he and his newfound crew set up shop in an abandoned seaside neighborhood and help bring it back to life.

Interviews with the cast
This week I was invited to participate on a Virtual Roundtable for ARLO THE ALLIGATOR BOY. In attendance to the virtual junket were
Although I had so many questions about the movie I think acting is hard and I think that doing voice-over is even harder, so I was really interested to learn from Michael and Mary how was the experience of doing voice-over recording for this movie.
Michael told me that he felt really comfortable because Ryan the director allowed us to be themselves and didn't ask them to talk with an accent or any weird traits.
Mary told me that as a singer she is used to be on a recording booth but at times it was challenging because if she had a scene when her character was running, she had to pretend she was panting as she was talking and that was a little awkward, but she loved doing the movie.
Did we like it?
It’s a story about owning who you are and has a great message for kids. The movie is recommended for kids 7 years and older, but I think smaller kids will enjoy it as well, although they might not understand what is happening. It is a kid's movie. I really liked the songs and I am sure they kids will enjoy the story of the half alligator half boy character.
