If your kids need a break from all that hot-weather fun they're having, then go ahead and let them have a little screen time (it's all about moderation, right?). And if they're bored of their old favourites, consider one of these July additions to Netflix Canada's lineup.
Note: Age recommendations are approximate. Every kid is different—you're the best judge of what's appropriate and what your kid can handle.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Best for: Ages 8+ The Rebel Alliance makes a risky move to steal the plans for the Death Star, setting up the epic saga to follow. Available July 18.
Pixels Best for: 10+ When aliens attack Earth in the style of old video games, the President and his childhood pals (a pack of former arcade kings) swing into action.
