Some critics argue that the movie falls into an uncanny valley. The Polar Express did grab three Oscar nominations after it was released in 2004. To be precise, 17 years ago.

The Polar Express is not on Netflix in the USA

In 2020 one could watch The Polar Express in the USA on Netflix. It was on the streaming platform from April 2020. But later, it moved to another platform in July 2020.

Suppose you want to know which movie is released, where, and when. It is important to look into who owns the license for the movie. So for The Polar Express, Warner Bros owns the distribution rights. Hence, it is a decision on which streaming platform will own the rights to the movie and lend it to other streaming platforms.

Everyone hoped Warner Bros would stop licensing the movie and keep it to HBO Max Service. It launched in May 2020. Until now, that's not happened.

However, the good news is that Netflix's DVDs own a movie, so if you want to rent the movie, you can do it there.
