This one has been in development for a long time, and Netflix has finally debuted the first teaser trailer and a poster for Nimona.

The animated fantasy adventure from Nick Bruno and Troy Quane (Spies in Disguise) was originally set for release under 20th Century Fox's Blue Sky Studios back in 2020, but after the Disney acquisition, the project received pushback from the Mouse House's new leadership because of the story's LGBTQ+ themes.

The movie ended up being cancelled altogether, but was recently given a new lease of life by Annapurna Pictures, and is set to hit Netflix on June 30.

Check out the teaser and poster below, and let us know what you think.

"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.

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."

Nimona features the voice talents of Chloë Grace Moretz, Riz Ahmed, Eugene Lee Yang, Frances Conroy, Lorraine Toussaint, Beck Bennett, RuPaul Charles, Indya Moore, Julio Torres, and Sarah Sherman.
