The development of Nimona It has been long and with many interruptions

Originally, the work of N. D. Stevenson was produced by Blue Sky Studios, the studio that was shut down by Disney after completing the purchase of 20th Century Fox. The production of the film had already begun when the company was acquired, but in February of last year, it was decided to end its operations due to the enormous presence of its other studios (Pixar and Walt Disney Animation).

Patrick Osborne had been assigned to direct the film version of Nimona, and this was going to be launched on January 14 of this year, but the decision to close Blue Sky caused its cancellation. It is recalled that this title will include characters LGBTQ+since the original comic, published in 2015, explores what queer and the fluidity of gender identity.
