A note on the list: streamers often announce new animation releases mid-month. Our guide only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but when possible, we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements. If there are other U.S. streaming services you’d like to see added to our line-up, share a comment below.
Here’s a look at the streaming animation release calendar for the month of May:
Buzzy standouts from this month’s streaming newcomers include Disney+’s Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers hybrid reboot feature, season 3 of Netflix’s Love, Death + Robots, and Apple TV+’s eye-candy dino series Prehistoric Planet, narrated by David Attenborough.
Spring is the season of renewal, and several studios are hoping to renew old IPs with streaming launches in May. Original offerings are harder to come by, but there for those willing to seek them out.
