With the takeover of 20th Century Fox by the Walt Disney Company, the mouse house also secured the rights to 20th Century Fox Animation, including the company Blue Sky Studios. This was responsible for the «Ice Age» series, «Rio» or «Spione Undercover». In February 2021, Disney made the closure of Blue Sky Studios official.
While Disney keeps the «Ice Age» brand alive and not only developed a sixth part of the popular animated series with » Ice Age — The Adventures of Buck Wild «, but also the series » Ice Age: Scrat’s Adventures “, other projects were put on hold. For example, the eagerly awaited comic adaptation “ Nimona ”. However, as has now been announced, Netflix is taking care of the matter.

This is «Nimona»
«Nimona» is about a knight who is framed for a crime that he actually didn’t commit. The only person who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona. But the teenage shapeshifter may also be a monster the knight has sworn to kill.
Netflix is partnering with Annapurna Pictures (Spring Breakers, American Hustle) to release the film adaptation of ND Stevenson’s award-winning comic book in 2023. Kick-Ass star Chloe Grace Moretz will voice the eponymous protagonist, while Oscar winner Riz Ahmed will voice villain Ballister Boldheart, who seeks revenge after being evicted from the Law and Order and Heroism Institute Has.
Nimona will be staged by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane , who made their directorial debut in 2019 with Spies Undercover . Even if fans of the template will have to wait a little longer until they see «Nimona» on Netflix, it’s gratifying that the project hasn’t been canceled entirely, but has found a new home.
The comic adaptation has always been highly anticipated simply because the story is also committed to listening to LGBTQIA+ voices, as the film should feature many characters whose same-sex orientation and identity fluidity is definitely an issue.
