The official teaser and poster for The Sea Beast, the next animated film from Oscar-winning Big Hero 6 and Moana director Chris Williams, were released by Netflix on Tuesday. Karl Urban, Jared Harris, Zaris-Angel Hator, Dan Stevens, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Kathy Burke are among the voice actors for the family adventure film, which will debut exclusively on the streaming service on July 8 throughout the globe.
The film is set in a time when oceans were filled with terrifying animals and those who hunted them were held in high esteem as heroes. Jacob Holland, the great, was held in the highest esteem by everybody (Urban). However, when Maisie Brumble (Hator) stows away aboard his legendary ship, he’s saddled with an unexpected ally. They go on an adventurous trip into unexplored seas and create history together.
An official announcement of the film’s cast was made in March when a teaser was dropped.
Williams is directing and co-writing the screenplay for his debut film for Netflix alongside Nell Benjamin. He is also a co-producer with Jed Schlanger.
