Fresh off of an Oscars win for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Netflix is detailing what other animated films it has in store for this year and next. There are no specific release dates, but the slate includes nine movies in total, with a mix of previously revealed titles and brand-new announcements, including the Spongebob spinoff Saving Bikini Bottom: The Sandy Cheeks Movie and some more details on the much-anticipated Nimona.
I apologize, but as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there hasn’t been any official information about a Netflix adaptation of “Nimona” for the year 2023. It’s possible that new announcements or developments have occurred since then. I recommend checking official sources such as Netflix’s website, social media accounts, or news outlets for the most up-to-date information on the status of a “Nimona” adaptation on Netflix.
Netflix synopsis: Nimona, a cheeky kid who also happens to be a shape-shifting beast he’s promised to destroy, is the only person who can help a knight in a futuristic medieval world establish his innocence after he is falsely accused of committing a crime.
The cast includes Frances Conroy, Lorraine Toussaint, Beck Bennett, RuPaul Charles, Indya Moore, Julio Torres, and Sarah Sherman in addition to Riz Ahmed and Eugene Lee Yang.
Reasons to watch Nimona, an original webcomic-turned-graphic novel by ND Stevenson, is a powerfully emotional journey full of surprises. This adaptation, from Spies in Disguise directors Nick Bruno and Troy Quane, almost never happened because Blue Sky Studios, the production company for the Ice Age films, was acquired by Disney and shut down. Netflix, however, was able to purchase it and save it.
Helmed by Boxtrolls director Anthony Stacchi, The Monkey King is described as “an action-packed family comedy that follows a charismatic Monkey and his magical fighting Stick on an epic quest for victory over 100 demons, an eccentric Dragon King, and Monkey’s greatest foe of all —his own ego.”
