Benji is BACK! A Netflix Original Film: BENJI
Oh my goodness, I LOVED Benji as a kid and I’m so excited that Benji is back! I remember first seeing a Benji movie at the old theater in my grandmother’s town. I feel in love! I’ve shared the original movies with my kids and they really enjoyed them and we are all really excited about the new Netflix Benji movie, as it looks to be the same fun story of love and friendship with a modern twist and some exciting Benji adventures! Plus, I love family friendly movies that can be enjoyed by all ages!
A modern day retelling of the classic, the story of Benji follows one orphaned puppy and Carter and Frankie, two capricious New Orleans school kids who strike up a friendship with the tenacious street dog. When danger befalls them and they end up kidnapped by robbers who are in over their heads, Benji and his scruffy sidekick come to the rescue.
Written and directed by Brandon Camp, whose father Joe Camp created the original, Benji is produced by Jason Blum and Brandon Camp. The film stars Kiele Sanchez, Gabriel Bateman and Darby Camp.
The Netflix film premieres globally on March 16!
