Big Hero 6 director makes a splash with Netflix’s pirate epic The Sea Beast

The animated high-seas adventure will set sail on July 8

Netflix released the first trailer on Wednesday for The Sea Beast, the latest animated film from director Chris Williams (Moana, Big Hero 6) that follows the story of Maisie Brumble, a young girl who stows away on the ship of legendary monster hunter Jacob Holland in search for glory, fame, and high adventure.

The first look at The Sea Beast is thoroughly impressive, with thrilling shots of the roaring seas, a ship with a scowling, monstrous bow clashing with a massive sea creature, a beautiful city port surrounding a marble white palace, and swashbuckling action.

The Sea Beast premieres on Netflix on July 8.
