Terrifying beasts roam the seas in Netflix’s forthcoming Sea Beast. At a time when monster hunters are celebrated heroes, Jacob Holland is the best of the best. But when a young Maisie Brumble stows away on his ship, desperate to join him for an adventure, the two find themselves on a journey unlike any other.
Netflix is ramping up its animated offerings as of late, and having Academy Award-winner Chris Williams in the fold helps. With stellar animation and a serious, somewhat darker story, the opportunity here is tremendous. However, one must wonder how closely it resembles Williams’ previous hit, Disney’s Moana.
Check out the trailer below and catch Sea Beast when it opens in theaters in June ahead of its Netflix premiere on July 8.
