"Orion and The Dark" on Netflix

"Orion and the Dark" is a new animated fantasy comedy feature, directed by Sean Charmatz, based on the book by Emma Yarlett, streaming February 2, 2024 on Netflix:

"....'Orion' seems a lot like your average school kid, shy and un-assuming. But underneath his seemingly normal exterior, Orion is a very anxious boy, completely consumed by irrational fears of bees, dogs, the ocean, cell-phone waves, murderous gutter clowns and even falling off of a cliff. But of all his fears, the thing he's the most afraid of is what he confronts on a nightly basis: the 'Dark'. 

"He needs a light everytime he's sleeping. So when the literal embodiment of his worst fear pays a visit, the Dark whisks Orion away on a roller-coaster ride around the world to prove there is nothing to be afraid of in the night. As the unlikely pair grow closer, Orion must decide if he can learn to accept the unknown and stop letting fear control his life..."
