Damon Albarn has mentioned a potential Netflix Gorillaz movie, and we’re excited.

Speaking during an interview with Apple Music about his new solo record, The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows, Albarn said, “We’re having a writing session in Malibu this afternoon… It’s something we’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. It’s been through so many incarnations…this Gorillaz doing a movie. Honestly.

Of working with Netflix, the frontman added: “But Netflix, I don’t know. I mean, apart from them kind of running this city now, I mean – it’s just extraordinary to see how ubiquitous they are now. Yeah. They just seem like they’re a good creative team, you know?”

Despite saying that he can’t reveal any details, Albarn did mention that they’d begun writing scripts and that their ideas were more “in the world of Studio Ghibli.”

This year has already been a major one for Gorillaz, having launched their debut clothing line in August and next month marks the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut. As for taking their story to the cinematic format, our fingers are crossed.
