Gorillaz Movie has been Cancelled by Netflix

It was back in 2021 when it was first teased that the fictional band Gorillaz was going to get a feature-length movie, and after all the decades of the band’s existence, a lot of fans thought it was inevitable.

However, with Netflix having cut back on several animated projects, it seems that the Gorillaz movie has also been cancelled. This was confirmed by Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn who told Belgian publication HUMO (via StereoGum) that the Gorillaz feature film, ‘will never happen’ and has been ‘permanently suspended.’

While Albarn doesn’t really name any names, he does say that the recent move for Netflix to cut down on content was the reason the film was cancelled, and the people they were talking to in the company about making the film had moved on to another studio. He says:

“Yes. That is to say, and without naming names because the whole matter has not yet been settled: the streaming platform for which we were making the film has withdrawn. They started to panic because they were making too much content and decided to cut back on their movie offerings. And, as has been classic Hollywood practice for decades, the guy we were working with has moved on to another company. From then on you have lost your guardian angel, and there seems to be a bad smell hanging on you. Hollywood is quite territorial: if a new guy comes along, he must and will have a different opinion, even if he secretly agrees with his predecessor.”

We don’t know how far they got with the process, but I think that the movie still has a chance to happen with enough time. It’s actually crazy how the band has managed to be relevant after all this time, and I imagine we can still get a movie maybe in the next five years.

In the meantime, check out the new album from Gorillaz, Cracker Island.
