Written by Chris Williams and Nell Benjamin, “Sea Monster” takes place in a fantastical time when terrifying monsters live in the seas and tells the adventures of Jacob Holland, a famous monster hunter.
The life of Jacob Holland, a hunter loved by those around him, suddenly changes when a little girl named Maise Brumble hides on his ship. An unexpected friendship develops between Maise and Jacob, who took refuge in Jacob’s ship without knowing who he is, and the two embark on an epic sea voyage together. But it turns Jacob’s life upside down when Maise befriends one of the scariest sea monsters…
The voice cast of the film, in which the young actress Zaris-Angel Hator gives life to Maise Brumble with her voice, also includes master names such as Karl Urban, Jared Harris, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Dan Stevens, and Kathy Burke.
“Sea Monster” will premiere on Netflix on July 8th.
