Is ‘The Bad Guys’ on HBO Max or Netflix? Where to Watch Animated Movies

It’s the villain’s turn to shine in Universal Dreamworks’ new animated feature, bad people, in theaters this weekend.

Basically Suicide Squad for children, Bad People directed by Pierre Perifel, with a screenplay from Etan Cohen, which is a film adaptation of the children’s book series of the same name by Aaron Blabey. Sam Rockwell takes on the role of the voice of Mr. Wolf, the leader of a herd of criminal animals who decide to pretend to change their evil ways. But what happens when it turns out that these bad dogs really want to be good kids?

Also starring Marc Maron, Anthony Ramos, Craig Robinson, Awkwafina, Richard Ayoade, Zazie Beetz, Lilly Singh, and Alex Borstein in voice roles, The Bad Guys is sure to keep kids entertained and adults laughing half-heartedly.

Currently, the only place to watch Bad People it’s in theaters, but you won’t have to wait long to see the movie on stream. Read on to find out how to watch Bad People and when expected Bad People stream on Peacock and Netflix.


For now, the only way to watch Bad People is to go to the movies. Bad People will open in theaters across the US on April 22, 2022. You can find tickets at your nearest theater here.

After the movie theater screening, you will be able to stream Bad People on Peacock, NBC Universal’s streaming service, and finally, on Netflix. You can also rent Bad People on digital platforms like Amazon Prime, iTunes, YouTube, Google Play, and more.


No. Bad People is a Universal Pictures film, not a Warner Bros. film, and as such will not be showing on HBO Max when it opens in theaters. In addition, HBO Max will no longer be showing theatrical films in 2022. Last year, Warner Media chose to simultaneously stream its theatrical films, meaning HBO Max subscribers can watch films such as Matrix Awakening at home. However, this year, the Warner Bros. theatrical film. will only be in theaters for 45 days before moving to HBO Max.


Although there is no official Peacock release date for Bad Peoplewe can expect Bad People to be on the streaming service after 45 days in theaters. Therefore, you should see Bad People at Peacock as early as mid-June 2022. This is because, starting with the 2022 film lineup, Universal films will be coming to Peacock Premium as soon as 45 days after opening in theaters. (That said, it could be more than 45 days.)

Bad Peoplewill stream exclusively on Peacock for four months.


Not yet. However, Bad People will premiere on Netflix after four months on Peacock, thanks to a long-term deal between Netflix and Universal Filmed Entertainment Group that grants Netflix exclusive rights in the US for the media company’s animated feature films. Therefore, you can see The Bad Guys on Netflix sometime in October or November 2022, depending on when the film hits Peacock.

You can also rent Bad People on VOD, but it’s less clear when that will happen. Latest Universal Movies No Time To Die and 355 both landed on VOD about a month after opening in theaters. If Bad People following a similar pattern, you can expect to be able to rent the film for $20 on VOD by the end of May 2022.

That said, other Universal films, such as the thriller M. Night Shyamalan Oldtook over two months to release digitally, so take this estimate with a grain of salt

All this to say: We don’t know when Bad People will be on VOD. Stay tuned for more information.
