Netflix has revealed its holiday programming today – and it included two new animated specials of note. First up, Alien Xmas (November 20th) based on a 2006 picture book by the Chiodo Bros, and is an homage to the classic Rankin-Bass holiday specials. The stop-motion special is directed by Stephen Chiodo, produced by Edward Chiodo, and executive produced by Jon Favreau, David Ellender of Sonar Entertainment, Sander Schwartz, Charles Chiodo, Jim Strain and Karen Gilchrist.
The first two seasons will premiere exclusively on the NBCUniversal streaming service on Thursday, October 15, with a premiere date for Season 3 TBD. The announcement came Monday, on King’s birthday.
