The holidays may be behind us, but there’s a lot of choices to stream on Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Amazon Prime in January. Below are a few picks to check out during a snowy January day at home.
“The Last Jedi,” Disney+
If your kids are looking for a bit more “Star Wars” after seeing “Rise of Skywalker” in theaters, Disney+ finally adds “The Last Jedi” to its Force-sensitive catalog.
“One Day at Disney,” Disney+
This documentary series is great for older kids who want to get a glimpse of the magic that happens behind the scenes at Disney. Each week includes a new episode focusing on a different job and at 5-7 minutes each, they’re not going to blow your screetime budget.
“Secret Life of Pets 2,” Netflix
This sequel lives up to the hairy hijinks of the original Illumination film as Max the terrier faces his fears and deals with a new addition to the family. Silly enough for young kids, it’ll keep older children (and parents) entertained.
“Transformers Rescue Bots Academy: Season 1,” Netflix
Young kids will love watching young Transformers learn how to become heroes by tackling emergencies — with a little help from classics like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
“Glow Up,” Netflix
Older kids might get a kick out of this “Project Runway”-style show that centers around competition between make-up artists — emphasis on art: these are complex and amazing projects, though some can get a little gory and may not be suitable for younger eyes.
