It’s slim pickings this week for kids and family! While you can still catch hits like Kung Fu Panda 4 in theaters or at home, and shows like X-Men ‘97 continue to roll out on Disney+, there’s not a lot new out there this week if you’re not a full-grown adult.

That said, there are still two whole new shows to check out, one for the younger set, one for the teen set. And you’ve got a couple of theatrical options as well including, yes, Kung Fu Panda 4 (please, movie companies, my children are starving for new movies, help me).

So read on for our picks on what to watch this weekend with kids and family for April 19-21, 2024, both in theaters and on streaming.



Based on the book series by Diane Kredensor, Superbuns focuses on Buns Bunny, aka Superbuns. And great news: there are 24 episodes live on Peacock right now, plenty of new Content to Feed The Masses.

Spy x Family Code: White

We’ve already gone to bat for why Spy x Family is the perfect family watch, and now it’s in theaters with a non-canon holiday special that’s good for new fans and old.

Chicken for Linda!

Directed by Chiara Malta and Sébastien Laudenbach, the GKids film was a Cannes hit, and has been running in various theaters for the past few weeks. It’s on this list now because, tbh, I just noticed it was playing at a local theater here in New York. Sorry!

Kung Fu Panda 4

Still in theaters in addition to being on digital, if you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you! Copyright NBC circa, I don’t know, 1993 or something.
