BIG HERO SIX Director Chris Williams to Direct Netflix's JACOB AND THE SEA BEAST

Chris Williams may be best known for directing Big Hero 6 and co-directing and writing Moana for Disney, and now he’s got a new project for Netflix.

Williams will be writing and directing the animated film, Jacob and the Sea Beast which “tells the epic story of a charming seafarer who sails into uncharted waters and discovers an unlikely ally in a sea monster.” Williams had this to say about the project:

Jacob and the Sea Beast is the kind of story I’ve always wanted to take on. It’s a tale of high adventure where our hero leaves the known world and ventures out into uncharted waters. As it turns out, I’m doing the same thing. I’m grateful for the opportunities provided by my former creative home and am excited to leap into a new environment.

Jacob and the Sea Beast is expected to release in 2022.
