Popular San-X character Rilakkuma is headed to Netflix with a stop motion animation set to premiere in 2019!
Created in celebration of Rilakkuma’s 15th anniversary, the series will dramatise the unseen everyday days adventures of Rilakkuma and friends.
The new key visual features the titular bear with his usual friends Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori, plus new character Kaoru walking along under the beautiful cherry blossoms. Kaoru is introduced as the office lady Rilakkuma and friends live with, who has not been featured in any of the merchandise lines or published materials so far.
Alongside the visual, the show has also released a teaser trailer confirming the 2019 Netflix release and featuring Rilakkuma lying down eating dango, Korilakkuma dancing to music, and Kiiroitori having fun saving money.
Rilakkuma and Kaoru will premiere on Netflix in spring 2019.
