Remember the days when Barack Obama was the President and the world didn't seem so crazy? We know we must move on, and they must too, but we didn't expect the Obama family to move in this direction!

Michelle and Barack Obama have just signed a deal with Netflix to produce original movies and television shows for the streaming service under their new production company Higher Ground Productions.

Yep, you read that correctly, the Obamas are now making movies!

In a statement released by Netflix, Obama said:"We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world."

Michelle added that the couple have "always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire us, to make us think differently about the world around us, and to help us open our minds and hearts to others.”

There are many reasons that this is a great idea...

We already know that Obama has a great sense of humour because he gave us this incredible moment:
