Netflix Canada has announced which new kids’ TV shows and movies it will be adding to its lineup in May 2019. From the look of it, next month is pretty bare bones for younger kids' titles, but don't let that stop your family from enjoying the ones that are coming to the streaming service, including Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and Disney's Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Here’s the full lineup.

But first, an important note: The age recommendations offered below are approximate. Every kid is different, and you’re the best judge of what’s appropriate and what your kid can handle.
