Nimona is coming to Netflix and the animated movie based on the bestselling graphic novel by ND Stevenson has such a great story. The story introduces Ballister Boldheart, a knight, being framed for a crime he did not commit, while a shapeshifter is trying to help him prove that he is innocent. This shape-shifting teen, Nimona, might also be a monster that as a knight he is sworn to destroy, which will make this adventure way more complicated.
This techno-medieval world is such a wonderful setting for the adventure, with a great set of characters. While we are loving the story, not really in love with the animation for Nimona, but again we were also not in love with the artwork for the graphic novel even though the story is stellar.
This summer, Netflix will release the highly anticipated NIMONA, based on the bestselling graphic novel by ND Stevenson. Nimona follows Ballister Boldheart, a knight framed for a crime he didn’t commit, and the titular shapeshifter who sets out to help him prove his innocence.
Today, Netflix confirms joining the film’s previously announced cast members Chloë Grace Moretz (Nimona), Riz Ahmed (Ballister Boldheart) and Eugene Lee Yang (Ambrosius Goldenloin) are supporting cast Frances Conroy, Lorraine Toussaint, Beck Bennett, RuPaul Charles, Indya Moore, Julio Torres and Sarah Sherman. Nimona is directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane.
