Nimona is alive - The film will be made by Annapurna and Netflix

Graphic novel author ND Stevenson announces that his Nimona comes back to life after several cancellations, finally bought by Netflix in which it will see the light next year.
Nimona was acquired for the animated adaptation by Fox Animation in 2015, in production at Blue Sky Studios with Patrick Osborne and Marc Haimes in the roles of director and screenwriter. Following the acquisition of Fox by Disney, the film was canceled twice by its new owners, which was also followed by the closure of Blue Sky Studios in April 2021. A former studio employee had revealed a few months ago that the film was 75% finished.

Yesterday the tweets from the author and the distributor arrived announcing a new start of production thanks to Annapurna Pictures (Missing Link, Sausage Party) and the animations produced by DNEG, with the direction entrusted to the former-Blue Sky couple Nick Bruno and Troy Quane ( Undercover Spies ).

Synopsis: A Knight is framed for a crime he didnít commit and the only person who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona, a shape-shifting teen who might also be a monster heís sworn to kill. Set in a techno-medieval world unlike anything animation has tackled before, this is a story about the labels we assign to people and the shapeshifter who refuses to be defined by anyone.

Featuring the original voices of Chloe Grace Moretz (Nimona), Riz Ahmed (Ballister Boldheart) and Eugene Lee Yang (Ambrosius Goldenloin), the film it was bought by Netflix which will offer it on its platform in 2023.
