ND Stevenson announced the news and debuted a first look on Twitter this morning. Nimona is based on Stevenson's New York Times bestselling graphic novel of the same name.
In the film, Knight Ballister Boldheart is framed for a crime he didn't commit and the only person who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona, a shape-shifting teen who might also be a monster he's 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.
The movie will star Chloë Grace Moretz as Nimona, Riz Ahmed as Ballister Boldheart, and Eugene Lee Yang as Ambrosius Goldenloin. Nick Bruno and Troy Quane will direct. Netflix partnered with Annapurna Pictures when production began early last year.
