Netflix Reveal First Look Images and Details For 'The House' Stop-Motion Anthology

Of all the numerous animation projects in development at Netflix, one of the most intriguing has to be The House. Produced by London-based Nexus studio, the anthology brings together some of the leading voices in independent stop-motion animation to tell three stories surrounding a house and those who made it their home. Described as an eccentric dark comedy, the films are directed by Emma de Swaef and Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr and Paloma Baeza.

Netflix has released a set of brand new first-look images and announced the series will debut on January 14, 2022. They have also revealed the synopsis for the three episodes:

  1. Directed by Marc James Roels & Emma de Swaef Set in the 1800s, impoverished Raymond meets a mysterious benefactor who promises to restore both him and his family to their former status. The family soon learns that wants and desires may not always lead you where you expect
  2. Directed by Niki Lindroth von Bahr Set in the present day, a harassed property developer tries to make a quick sale from a renovation. However, some eerie unexpected guests have other plans and become the catalyst to a more personal transformation 
  3. Directed by Paloma Baeza Set in the near future, the house survives a hugely changed landscape.  We meet Rosa, a young landlady determined to stay in her beloved crumbling house and restore it to its former glory. But Rosa’s unrealistic vision has blinded her to the inevitable change that is coming and to what matters most
