Many of us define ourselves by who we are within our family. But what if you don’t know your real family, and never quite feel like you fit in? Well, that marks the beginning of a fantastic personal adventure, especially in the case of Arlo the Alligator Boy — the Netflix animated movie musical premiering on April 16.
This is one of the most talked-about and Googled films for spring, and Netflix has given Parentology an exclusive preview clip from the film.
About Arlo the Alligator Boy
Arlo is a wide-eyed boy who is half human and half alligator, with an optimistic love of the world that cannot be stopped. Upon learning that he is from New York City, he decides to leave his sheltered life in the swamp and search for his long lost father. Arlo’s journey finds him fleeing from greedy animal wranglers (think Tiger King’s Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin), teaming up with a group of misfits, and discovering a lot more about family than he bargained for.
Check out the trailer, the hit song fans are already talking about, and the exclusive preview clip below.
