The animated adaptation of ND Stevenson’s award-winning graphic novel Nimona nearly didn’t occur. In 2021, Disney shut down Blue Sky, the studio that was capturing the movie. However a 12 months later, Netflix and Annapurna got here to the rescue, hinting that the movie could be prepared in 2023.
And right here we’re, with a primary look and a launch date! This little teaser is mild on the story however huge on the angle, which is actually what we’re right here for: Nimona and her explicit model of mayhem. Why be just a little order-taking fowl while you generally is a huge chaos dragon, or no matter?
Right here is the synopsis:
When Ballister Boldheart (Riz Ahmed), a knight in a futuristic medieval world, is framed for against the law he did not commit, the one one who may also help show his innocence is Nimona (Chloë Grace Moretz), a mischievous teenager with a style for chaos – who additionally occurs to be a shapeshifting creature that Ballister has been skilled to destroy. However with the entire kingdom trying to find her, Nimona is the most effective (or technically the one) sidekick Ballister might hope for. And because the strains between heroes, villains, and monsters start to blur, the 2 got down to wreak some critical havoc – for Ballister to clear his identify as soon as and for all, and for Nimona… to do some critical ravages.
I’ll by no means understand the standard of names on this world. The synopsis leaves out the even sweeter nickname of Ambrosius Goldenloin (Eugene Lee Yang), the dominion’s hero.
However the teaser has a really irritating factor: Animated Nimona has been lightened up. E-book-Nimona has huge hips and powerful thighs, in wonderful distinction to so many improbably proportioned comedian e-book ladies. The Nimona on this poster won’t be as skinny as most fashionable cartoon or comedian e-book characters, however she’s undoubtedly not the lady from the e-book:
What’s interesting, nonetheless, is the animation: it would not attempt to be Stevenson’s very explicit model, but it surely would not seem like anything both. At the least not once we watch Nimona invent tales of mayhem and destruction!
Nimona is directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane. IMDb lists an entire stack of writers: Robert L. Baird and Lloyd Taylor get script credit score; Baird, Taylor, Pamela Ribon, Nick Bruno, Troy Quane, Keith Bunin and Marc Haimes are credited with the story.
Hopefully we’ll get a extra substantial trailer earlier than Nimona debuts on Netflix on June 30.
