Netflix has released the first trailer for its LGBTQ+ animated feature Nimona. On 19 May, the popular streamer surprised subscribers with a new teaser for the upcoming film – which is based on the hit graphic novel by ND Stevenson.
At the start of the minute-long trailer, Nimona (Chloë Grace Moretz) begins to narrate a seemingly generic princess story. However things take a drastic turn when her fairytale character begins to wreak havoc on the fictional kingdom. “Oh, the humanity, who would do such a thing,” Nimona mimics a fake villager before she appears on the screen and says, “That would be me.” Towards the end of the teaser, an array of action scenes flash across the screen featuring Nimona shapeshifting into different animals.
Shortly after the trailer was released, fans flocked to Twitter to express their excitement over the film. One fan wrote: “This movie looks gorgeous, I can’t wait!!
Thrilled to finally have a trailer.” Another fan tweeted: “I can’t wait it’s going to be great. Just finished reading the book.” Before its move to Netflix, the animated feature was set to be produced under Blue Sky Studios via Disney.
