Vivo is the best animated Netflix movies of the last few years. It’s right up there with The Mitchells vs. The Machines, which premiered on Netflix in the spring of 2021.

Vivo was released on Netflix on August 6, 2021, and it was a huge hit on the streaming service. It was right behind Outer Banks on the Netflix Top 10 after it premiered.

The Netflix movie tells the story of Vivo, a kinkajou from Havana, Cuba. After his friend passes away, Vivo travels to Florida to give the gift of a song to his friend’s old friend, Marta. If you’re a fan of musicals and animated movies, Vivo is the movie for you. It’s really cute, and I think most people will like it if they give the movie a chance.

It currently has an 86 percent critical approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s high praise!

Will we see Vivo 2 on Netflix? It seems possible!

Verdict: WATCH
