August Netflix releases

Netflix in August tends to be more calm, which just means that the rest of the year will be filled with a greater amount of originals. 

To end your summer, watch these three highly anticipated releases.

1. "The Little Prince" (August 5)

Starring: Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd

Sometimes you need a children's movie to brighten your mood after binge watching an intense drama. The story follows two children as one tells the other a tale about how he met The Little Prince. 

2. "The Get Down" (August 12)

Starring: Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks

Described as "a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco" – the show follows a group of teenagers in The Bronx during the 1970s. 

3. "XOXO" (August 26)

Starring: Sarah Hyland, Ryan Hansen, Hayley Kiyoko 

The last release of August, XOXO "follows six strangers whose lives collide in one frenetic, dream-chasing, hopelessly romantic night."
