Netflix Anime has announced that the stop-motion anime series Rilakkuma’s Theme Park Adventure will premiere on Netflix on August 25, 2022. 

The second stop-motion anime of the Rilakkuma franchise was first confirmed by Netflix for an initial 2021 premiere in October 2020. This was due in part to the success of Rilakkuma and Kaoru on the streaming service. For reasons unknown, the premiere date has been changed to this Summer 2022.

Illustrator and character designer Aki Kondou is the creative advisor. Shigeru Kishida (Deaimon) composed the series’ music. Dwarf is the animation production company for the stop-motion anime. 

Rilakkuma’s Theme Park Adventure will explore a busy day of incidents and interactions between Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma, Kiiroitori, and Kaoru at an amusement park that is about to close. Their time at the park has them meeting different people and experiencing many events.

The 13-episode Rilakkuma and Kaoru anime is based on the character of the same name created by Japanese company San-X. Netflix debuted the stop-motion series on April 19, 2019. 

Netflix describes Rilakkuma and Kaoru as: 

Her life might be a little mundane, but Kaoru gets to go home to Rilakkuma, her endearingly lazy roommate who happens to be a fuzzy toy bear.
