'Nimona': Queer Animated Adventure Gets New Trailer
A little anti, a little hero...
Netflix and Annapurna Pictures' queer animation Nimona — based on ND Stevenson's graphic novel and directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane — is shaping up to be one of the premiere film events of the summer. On Wednesday, Netflix released the official trailer, showcasing its bold art style and dazzling action set pieces.
"When Ballister Boldheart (Riz Ahmed), a knight in a futuristic medieval world, is framed for a crime he didn't commit, the only one who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona (Chloë Grace Moretz), a mischievous teen with a taste for mayhem — who also happens to be a shapeshifting creature Ballister has been trained to destroy," the film's official description reads.
"But with the entire kingdom out to get him, Nimona’s the best (or technically the only) sidekick Ballister can hope for. And as the lines between heroes, villains, and monsters start to blur, the two of them set out to wreak serious havoc — for Ballister to clear his name once and for all, and for Nimona to…just wreak serious havoc."
The film also features performances by a host of queer stars, including Eugene Lee Yang, RuPaul Charles, Indya Moore, and Julio Torres.
Below, check out new images and the official trailer for Nimona, coming June 30 to Netflix.
