Have you heard of a flummel?
Well, now you have! There are many great things about films for the whole family and 2021 has already seen the release of some serious crowdpleasers, whether that’s The Mitchells vs the Machines on Netflix or Raya and the Last Dragon on Disney+.
They invite us to explore curious new worlds, but perhaps foremostly, they are fountains of imagination, allowing the creators to explore creations we’ve never seen before – much like flummels.
These are the furry, doughnut-shaped animals that exist in Extinct, the latest animated adventure from directors David Silverman and Raymond S. Persi.
Audiences were treated to delightful trailers earlier this year and have finally been invited to check out the movie itself this August.
It’s a colourful and comedic tale that’s sure to entertain viewers both young and old, so let’s highlight where to watch the Extinct movie now that it has arrived on screens at long last….
Where to watch Extinct: 2021 movie streaming
- Extinct is now available to stream in the UK on Sky Cinema.
So, if you have the Sky Cinema package then you can head on over and watch the film with the push of a button. Well, a few buttons, but you get the picture.
If you aren’t signed up, on the other hand, then alternatively you can subscribe to NOW TV, where it is also available.
They are currently offering a discount for new customers, as you only have to pay £4.99 a month for 6 months for a Cinema Membership; this also includes a 7-day free trial of Boost.
If you haven’t had one already, NOW is currently offering a 7-day free trial too, so you can essentially watch Extinct for free if you sign up.
For US audiences, however, the film isn’t scheduled for release until Saturday, October 16th 2021, and it’s likely that streaming information will emerge close to the date.
It was originally set for release in 2020 but, like many other projects, was delayed.
Is Extinct (2021) on Netflix?
No, the animated film is not currently streaming on Netflix and is exclusive to Sky Cinema.
As for what to expect from Extinct itself, the story follows two flummels – Op and Ed – who accidentally time travel from the Galapagos Islands in 1835 to Shanghai in the present day.
During their navigation of the city, they soon realise that their species has long become extinct and a hilarious quest to save themselves and their kind ensues.
