“Nimona” Review

Nimona: Directed by Nick Bruno, Troy Quane. With ChloĆ« Grace Moretz, Riz Ahmed, Eugene Lee Yang, Frances Conroy. When 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 — a mischievous teen who happens to be a shapeshifting creature he’s sworn to destroy.

There’s talk that this was originally going to be a Disney release but that they allowed it be sold to Netflix to be released there. Idiot talking heads will have you believe this was because the main guy is involved with another dude, but anyone that’s seen the movie would likely be able to tell you it’s more than likely that decision was made because of the deconstruction of the “magical kingdom” narrative and story trope. It’s a great film and it does a great job of saying what it needs to say, then getting out of the way and letting the story happen. The main character is extremely likable and his ‘evil’ sidekick is adorably evil, though I think she would be horrified to be called adorable.
