Netflix to release South African-produced animated movie “Seal Team”

Netflix announced its lineup of movies for the month of December with the inclusion of the South African-produced animated movie Seal Team which will be arriving globally on December 31st, 2021. Other Netflix regions will also likely receive Seal Team although it will vary region-to-region.

The animated movie which is directed by Greig Cameron and co-directed by Kane Croudace, follows a group of seals team up to against the gang of sharks who have been terrorizing their neighborhood. Collectively they form a so-called Seal Team but the reality is they are not prepared for the mission they are about to embark on Chaos ensues.

Seal Team comes from Trigger Fish Animation studios who are based “on a farm” in Cape Town, SA. Their previous movies include Khumba and Adventures in Zambezia. The movie uses the same animation techniques as The Lego Movie and The Peanuts Movie that notably gives the movie a stop-motion aesthetic despite being made entirely digitally.

It has to be noted that Seal Team will be the only project coming soon from Triggerfish Animation as they are currently hard at work alongside Cake Entertainment on the new Shondaland animated series, Mama K’s Team 4.
