Netflix Is Developing “Elf on the Shelf” Movies, TV Shows, and Animated Content

If you have kids, you’re probably familiar with the phenomenon of The Elf on the Shelf . . . the Christmas character who watches to make sure kids behave every holiday season.

Well, Netflix bought up the rights to create some Elf on the Shelf content.

They’re working with the authors of the book to develop movies and TV shows . . . both live-action and animated.  The content will also feature “Elf Pets” and “Elf Mates.”

As part of the deal, they scored the rights to two existing animated movies, “Elf Pets: Santa’s Reindeer Rescue” and “Elf Pets: A Fox Cub’s Christmas Tale”.

Those will be on Netflix this coming holiday season . . . but it doesn’t sound like there’s time to have any NEW content available for this year.
