Last month on June 14, 2023, Netflix released their newest animated film Nimona (2023).
It was unfortunate that it did fall under radar for most people, including myself. In fact, I wasn’t even aware of its existence until watching a random Youtube clip from BlueSky Studios.
If you haven’t already watched the trailer, here is a link so you can see if this is something you would be interesting in watching:
With all of the latest news of block office flops from Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks, it feels like the medium animation is declining once again. With exceptions from Sony’s Spider Verse trilogy, Illumination’s collaboration with Nintendo, and even Studio Ghibli releasing their newest film this Friday July 14, 2023.
I’m so glad to finally watch some original stories that aren’t sequels or already well established characters from huge franchises. *Side note: this film was adapted from a web comic by Noelle Stevenson, but is still an original story.
