As Christmas draws near, the enchanting spirit of the season fills the air, prompting many holiday enthusiasts to embark on a Christmas movie binge. Among the sought-after selections, the 2018 rendition of “The Grinch” stands out, presenting a modern take on the beloved tale with Benedict Cumberbatch portraying the iconic Grinch, devising a scheme to sabotage Christmas in Whoville. Though it may not hold the same level of admiration as the Jim Carrey version or the 1966 original, this animated feature grossed over $520 million globally.
Is ‘The Grinch’ available on Netflix?
While this animation extravaganza has been a staple in Christmas marathons and available for streaming, curious viewers are currently inquiring about its status on Netflix.
At present, “The Grinch” is not accessible for streaming on Netflix. Instead, the 2018 adaptation can be enjoyed on Peacock, offering audiences a chance to infuse their holiday season with warmth and magic. Interestingly, the 1966 version is also available on Peacock, whereas Jim Carrey’s adaptation is set to be streamed on Peacock from December 20th to 31st.
The absence of “The Grinch” from Netflix stems from licensing matters, with Peacock securing the streaming rights for this festive film. Although the 2018 animation had made intermittent appearances on Netflix in recent years, this recent shift is undoubtedly disappointing for vigilant subscribers seeking the Christmas experience.
For those eager to relish the whimsical world of “The Grinch,” it’s time to activate your Peacock subscription and indulge in the timeless holiday delight.
