Send summer off in style with new family movies on Netflix! The lineup is stellar. 

This August, we can dig into classic family movies (like Dennis the Menace), enjoy new cartoons for kids and say farewell to one of the best '80s movies of all time. (Yep, we have to part ways with The Karate Kid.) Plus, one of the best educational shows for kids—The Magic School Bus—is coming back, but with a twist!

Grab some popcorn (or perhaps a summer popsicle) and kick back with a fun flick! What's first on your list? (For us, it's Jurassic Park.)
