Nimona: Teaser and images released

// Women in Animation

The first official teaser has been released for the much-anticipated animated feature film adaptation of ND Stevenson’s Nimona, headed to Netflix this summer.

Billed as “an epic tale about finding friendship in the most surprising situations and accepting yourself and others for who they are”, the world of Nimona began with Stevenson’s National Book Award-nominated and New York Times best-selling graphic novel that tells the story of the titular teen shapeshifter Nimona and her adventures as sidekick to wronged knight Ballister Boldheart. The film adaptation is directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane based on a screenplay by Robert L. Baird and Lloyd Taylor. Producing the project are Karen Ryan, p.g.a., Julie Zackary, p.g.a. and Roy Lee  alongside co-producer ND Stevenson and exec producers Megan Ellison, Robert L. Baird, Andrew Millstein, John Powers Middleton

When Ballister Boldheart (Riz Ahmed), 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 (Chloë Grace Moretz), 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.

Also among the cast are Eugene Lee Yang (Ambrosius Goldenloin), Frances Conroy (The Director), Lorraine Toussaint (Queen Valerin), Beck Bennett (Sir Thoddeus Sureblade), Indya Moore (Alamzapam Davis), RuPaul Charles (Nate Knight), Julio Torres (Diego the Squire), Sarah Sherman (Coriander Cadaverish).

Netflix have also released additional art and stills to accompany the teaser launch:
