The Film of Nimona The day of this science fiction graphic novel’s premiere on Netflix is drawing near, and that means audiences will soon be able to watch their favorite shape-shifting hero on the big screen. (At least, on a screen, even if it isn’t that large.)
The movie version of ND Stevenson’s smash-hit comic novel from 2015 has come a long way. The Nimona film, produced by the now-defunct Fox subsidiary Blue Sky Studios, was originally scheduled for release in 2020.
Then, after Disney bought Fox, the Nimona film was scrapped and Blue Sky Studios was closed. (One possible explanation is that one of the film’s main characters is gay.) Netflix came to the rescue, and now Nimona may be seen by its devoted audience.
Nimona (Chlo Grace Moretz), a shapeshifter, is determined to join forces with Ballister Blackheart (Riz Ahmed), a disgraced knight, in this animated film. Former knight Ballister is now on the run after being falsely accused of killing the queen. Together with Nimona, he must now establish his innocence.
Here’s when and where you can catch the Nimona movie on Netflix so you don’t miss out on the charming and touching experience it’s sure to be.

A Cheekily Irreverent and Hilariously Subversive Animated Film
Rotten Tomatoes gives Nimona a 98% approval rating. The feedback is favorable as well. The film Nimona has been called “cheekily irreverent and hilariously subversive” by The Hollywood Reporter. That “it’s a consistent delight” was an additional compliment.
Empire called Nimona a “revisionist fairytale that forges its path visually and narratively to beautiful effect,” praising the film for being “enthusiastically irreverent and deeply sincere.”
Annapurna Pictures’ Nimona received high marks from Variety. “Not since Shrek has an animated feature had such subversive fun with the ‘happily ever after’ formula,” the website proclaimed.
When asked when he thought Nimona’s release would be best, the Jewish Chronicle’s film critic commented, “I can’t think of a better time than Pride month for this beautiful LGBT story to be released and enjoyed by a wider audience of all ages.”
