The holiday season is here and there is no better time to catch up on all of your favourite Netflix movies and shows!


2023 may be coming to an end but we’re going out with a bang! Say goodbye to the year with some of the biggest family-friendly titles on Netflix, suitable for the kid in you and of course... your kids too!

While we recharge and reset during the year-end holidays, the Pokémons head to Pokémon Resort for a much-needed break, where they will be taken care of by a professional Pokémon Concierge, Haru. On the flip side, the gang from Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget might not have the time to rest as they face an unsettling new threat when the nearby farm ‘cooks’ up something mysterious... quite literally.

December also marks the time of year for peppermint-flavoured moments and festive cheer, and this could only mean one thing - it’s time to have a very happy, merry, and jolly binge-mas. While it’s customary to indulge in Christmas rom-coms like Fall Into Winter and I'm Glad It's Christmas, nothing completes the year-end binge list with some monsters in Gyeongseong Creature: Season 1 Part 1 and Sweet Home: Season 2and the return of our favourite love-machine-heister, Berlin in his self-titled series.

In this month’s Netflix Partner Spotlight, hear from MJ Marfori from the Philippines on how to maximise your family-viewing experience on Netflix this festive season!

News editor, anchor and radio personality

Q. Tell us about you and your family.

We are a small unit right now, but we are only at our happiest. I have a daughter who just turned four, her name is Aerin. My husband is Oscar, who is also a journalist and television news anchor like I am. We love travelling, doing activities together and winding down with Netflix to welcome our weekend.

Q: What is your favourite family activity during the year-end festive season?

We usually look for a short vacation spot before all the family gatherings. From the Philippines, that would be Hong Kong, which is only a two hour flight. We also consider beaches like Boracay or Panglao island or go home to Oscar’s grandparents in Legazpi, Albay to also appreciate the perfect Mount Mayon. But in true Pinoy fashion, we have left and right GRAND FAMILY REUNIONS of more than thirty relatives. The 24th will be for the mother side, the 25th father side and the 26th will be for our small family unit. New years will be the same and it will be with a grand fireworks display.

Q. What was your favourite family moment of 2023, and what do you look forward to the most in 2024?

My favourite family moment in 2023 was when we got to travel without worry due to the lockdowns and everything was lifted. We felt so free. Aerin got to attend events with Netflix at Okada (her favorite hotel by the way!) and she got to watch The Monkey King with other kids around her age as well. In 2024, I look forward to more travels with family and more meaningful experiences that we could take with us as core memories.

Q. What are your favourite holiday movies or shows to watch as a family on Netflix?

Our favourite shows at the moment are The CrownOne Piece and Replacing Chef Chico. As a family with a toddler, we watch the Barbie collectionThe Christmas Chronicles and Teletubbies.
