Skydance Media, a diversified media company that creates elevated, event-level entertainment for global audiences, announced today that Nathan Greno will join the Company’s rapidly expanding animation studio where he will direct the upcoming animated feature film, Powerless (working title). Under the multi-year deal, Greno, an animation veteran best known for his work on Tangled, will also consult on projects currently in development. Skydance plans to release the film under its newly-formed animation label.
In 2017, Skydance formed an animation division to develop and produce a slate of high-end feature films and television series in partnership with Spain’s Ilion Animation Studios. Skydance’s first two animated features are Luck, which comes to theaters on March 19, 2021, and Split. Luck, directed by Alessandro Carloni and written by Jonathan Aibel & Glenn Berger, is a comedy that pulls back the curtain on the millennia-old battle between the organizations of good luck and bad luck that secretly affect our daily lives. Split, directed by Vicky Jenson and written by Linda Woolverton, tells the story of Elian, a teenager who comes of age using her magical powers to defend her family when the opposing forces of light and darkness threaten to divide her kingdom.
