Netflix has unveiled a full trailer for the epic animated adventure film Nimona, which reaches the streaming service later this month
Just four weeks ago, the Netflix streaming service unveiled a teaser trailer for the animated adventure film Nimona – and since we’re a little over two weeks from the film’s June 30th release date, it makes sense that a full trailer for the movie has now arrived online. You can check it out in the embed above.
Nimona had a bumpy ride on its way to Netflix. The project was scrapped by Blue Sky Studios when it was near completion, then canceled by Fox… but by the end of this month, it will finally be out in the world.
Inspired by ND Stevenson‘s (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) webcomic-turned-graphic novel, Nimona was directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane from a screenplay by Robert L. Baird and Lloyd Taylor (with Baird, Taylor, Bruno, and Quane receiving story credit alongside Pamela Ribon, Marc Haimes, and Keith Bunin). Here’s the synopsis: When Ballister Boldheart, a knight in a futuristic medieval world, is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, the only one who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona, a mischievous teen with a taste for mayhem — who also happens to be a shapeshifting creature Ballister has been trained to destroy. But with the entire kingdom out to get him, Nimona’s the best (or technically the only) sidekick Ballister can hope for. And as the lines between heroes, villains, and monsters start to blur, the two of them set out to wreak serious havoc — for Ballister to clear his name once and for all, and for Nimona to…just wreak serious havoc.
The voice cast includes Chloë Grace Moretz (as Nimona), Riz Ahmed (as Ballister Boldheart), Eugene Lee Yang (as Ambrosius Goldenloin), Frances Conroy (as The Director), Lorraine Toussaint (as Queen Valerin), Beck Bennett (as Sir Thoddeus Sureblade), Indya Moore (as Alamzapam Davis), RuPaul Charles (as Nate Knight), Julio Torres (as Diego the Squire), and Sarah Sherman (as Coriander Cadaverish).
Coming our way from Annapurna Animation, Nimona was produced by Karen Ryan, Julie Zackary, and Roy Lee. Megan Ellison, Robert L. Baird, Andrew Millstein, and John Powers Middleton serve as executive producers, with ND Stevenson co-producing.
Nimona is described as “an epic tale about finding friendship in the most surprising situations and accepting yourself and others for who they are.” What did you think of the trailer? Will you be watching this movie when it reaches Netflix? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
