Netflix Original movies have been hit and miss since it's inception. Some of them have been absolute garbage while others have been pure genius. So even though Netflix's upcoming new movie 'A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting' seems amazing let's not get our hopes up. Until then, however, here's everything we know so far about it.
The film will be based on the book trilogy by Joe Ballarini which is about Babysitters who protect kids from monsters that live under the bed. The first book is called "A Babysitter's Guide To Monster Hunting", the second installment is called "Beasts & Geeks" and the third one is called "Mission to Monster Island". The author describes the story as:
The Last Kids on Earth meets Goosebumps in this hilarious new series about a secret society of babysitters who protect kids from the monsters that really do live under their beds!
Netflix has not yet revealed the release date of the film but it is expected to be released in Q2 of 2020 as production has already begun. The first day of filming was reported to be on August 30th, 2019 in Vancouver, Canada and it was completed in November 2019. The film is now in its post-production phase.
