Pixar’s animated hit “Cars 3,” with Owen Wilson as the voice of Lightning McQueen, and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the fifth film in the Disney franchise based on a theme-park ride with Johnny Depp, come to Netflix in the new year.

Other new films include the animated comedy “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie”; the Oscar-winning drama “Dallas Buyer’s Club,” starring Matthew McConaughey; and the scuba-vs.-shark thriller “47 Meters Down.”

Netflix continues to aggressively pick up exclusive films. In January, it presents “A Stupid and Futile Gesture,” a comedy charting the rise and fall of National Lampoon, which arrives direct from its world debut at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival; and “The Polka King” with Jack Black, which Netflix picked up from Sundance in 2017. Plus: the horror films “Before I Wake” and “The Open House.”

New streaming series coming in January include the German drama “Babylon Berlin,” set in the 1920s, and the animated “DEVILMAN crybaby” from Japan. Jerry Seinfeld’s interview series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” moves to Netflix in 2018. Plus there are new seasons of Netflix original shows “Grace and Frankie,” “One Day at a Time” and “Lovesick.”
