Seven years after Fox Animation first announced the sci-fi/fantasy epic Nimona, the oft-delayed animated feature will now release in 2023, having found a new home at Netflix, a new production company, and new directors.
Early last year, Netflix teamed with prestige production house Annapurna Pictures (Missing Link, Sausage Party) to revive Nimona, the big screen adaptation of ND Stevenson’s New York Times bestselling graphic novel. Before that, it was being produced at Blue Sky Studios, where the film was well into production.
Now, DNEG (Ron’s Gone Wrong) is animating it out of its London studio with Blue Sky veterans and Spies in Disguise directors Nick Bruno and Troy Quane at the helm. Roy Lee, Karen Ryan and Julie Zackary are producing, with Robert L. Baird, Megan Ellison, and Andrew Millstein on board as executive producers.
