Details Revealed for New Animated Movie Coming from Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2022. A new animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios is coming to theaters in the Fall of 2022 and will feature a bi-racial (Caucasian, African-American) teenage lead character named Ethan. The currently untitled movie will be directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) and written by Qui Nguyen (Raya and the Last Dragon). Studio Head Jennifer Lee will act as executive producer for the new title, with Roy Conli on as a producer.
Production on the film began at the beginning of the month, and the casting call log line for the film shares that the lead character Ethan “sounds very typical as far as teenagers go. Playful and quick-witted, but can also retreat. He can be a wise-ass, but he isn’t particularly tough. The actor VOICING him should be FUNNY, LIKABLE, & SOUND LIKE A 14 YR OLD, but also possess the ability to quickly turn inward and show us a SOFT EMOTIONAL SIDE.”
Though an official release date has yet to be confirmed by Disney, the untitled movie is expected to take the previously announced November 22, 2022 release slot for the studio. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney!
