A Teenage Kraken in the new DreamWorks Animation's film

One of the new and original works produced by the DreamWorks Animation studios soon on the big screens around the world features a Teenage Kraken. First info and trailer below.
With the working-title Meet the Gillmans, the official title is Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken the film is directed by Academy Award nominee Kirk DeMicco (Vivo, The Croods, Space Chimps), co-directed by Faryn Pearl (storyboard artist on The Croods: A New Age, Trolls World Tour) and produced by Kelly Cooney Cilella (Bilby, Trolls World Tour).

The film follows a shy 16-year-old named Ruby Gillman who learns that she is the next in a legendary line of royal sea krakens. Despite her lofty destiny, all Ruby wants to do is fit in. At school, she falls for a skater-boy that she’s tutoring who shows no indication of feeling the same way about her. Ruby struggles even more to fit in because her mother forbids her from going to the beach with any would-be friends. But when Ruby decides to disobey her mom’s instructions, she learns that she’s descended from the warrior kraken queens and will one day ascend to her grandmother’s throne as the Warrior Queen of the Seven Seas.

In the film, the krakens are a race sworn to protect the world’s oceans from the vain, power-hungry mermaids, and the two sides have been battling for eons. The generational confrontation comes to a head when a popular mermaid named Chelsea enrolls at Ruby’s school.

Among the voice actors of the original version we find Lana Condor, Toni Collette, Annie Murphy, Sam Richardson, Liza Koshy, Will Forte, Colman Domingo, Jaboukie Young-White, Blue Chapman, Eduardo Franco, Ramona Young, Echo Kellum, Nicole Byer , and Jane Fonda.

With the stylistic change of direction shown in the last two films The Bad Guys and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, one can imagine an adequate treatment also for this new Opera.

Expected this summer in theaters, here the first trailer and a visual:
