Lottie Animations Error - Please update the Following Components: Lottie

I have a massive challenge! The client I am working with uses Lottie animations on their old site. This all gets added as part of the CMS (now Sanity). I have added a custom upload of Lottie JSON files in the blockContent and I know the file is there but when I call it into the lottie-react hook nothing happens. The serializer currently looks like this:

lottieFile: (_props_)  => {

const data = _props_.node.document.url

const styles = {

width: 500,

height: 500


return (

<Lottie _animationData_={data} _style_={styles} />

Are you getting anything returned at all (including errors)?

I am getting a warning:

Warning: componentWillUpdate has been renamed, and is not recommended for use. See <> for details.

* Move data fetching code or side effects to componentDidUpdate.
* Rename componentWillUpdate to UNSAFE_componentWillUpdate to suppress this warning in non-strict mode. In React 17.x, only the UNSAFE_ name will work. To rename all deprecated lifecycles to their new names, you can run npx react-codemod rename-unsafe-lifecycles in your project source folder.

Please update the following components: Lottie

I’m now thinking this is a Next.js issue and probably the react-lottie package. 😢
