Netflix has acquired techno-medieval graphic novel adaptation Nimona and set Chloe Grace Moretz, Riz Ahmed and Eugene Lee Yang to star in the voice cast after the project was shelved when Disney acquired Fox’s entertainment assets and shut down Blue Sky Studios.
Netflix and Annauprna Pictures quietly began production last year and the feature will debut on the platform in 2023.
Roy Lee, Karen Ryan, Julie Zackary are producing Nimona based on ND Stevenson’s graphic novel about a shape-shifting teenager who might be the only one to help a knight accused of a crime he did not commit.
Moretz plays Nimona, Ahmed is Ballister Boldheart, and Yang is Ambrosius Goldenloin. Nick Bruno and Troy Quane direct and executive producers are Robert L. Baird, Megan Ellison and Andrew Millstein.
