The Grinch is a timeless Christmas classic that has been loved by fans for years. The film is based on the 1957 book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss and has been a favorite among fans ever since.
While Jim Carrey’s portrayal of the character in the 2000 film was outstanding, fans can now watch the animated version of the film.
So if you’re still interested in watching the film, let’s see if it’s available on Netflix.
Is The Grinch is on Netflix?
It’s a sad day for fans of The Grinch as Netflix has just removed the film on December 4th, 2021. The contract of the streaming platform with Illumination and Universal Pictures has expired, meaning that the film is no longer available to stream on Netflix.
Although it is disappointing news, fans can still stream Jim Carrey’s live-action Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas on Netflix as a substitute.
The animated film will feature Pharrell Williams as the narrator and will also feature Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely & Angela Lansbury in the voice cast.
The official synopsis of The Grinch read as, “The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming, and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.”
