The Sea Beast takes place in a world where the fearsome monsters on the edges of old maps actually exist, tormenting sailors. The animated film was shown off during day two of Netflix’s GEEK WEEK 2022! It is a free five-day virtual event celebrating Netflix’s genre series, movies and games that runs June 6-10 across all your favorite platforms. We will continue to see tons of exclusive news, new trailers, celebrity appearances, etc. 

In The Sea Beast, a brave monster hunter named Jacob (Karl Urban) faces his greatest challenge yet: looking after a young girl who has stowed herself away on the ship. The young adventurer, Maisie (Zaris-Angel Hator), is determined to stay no matter the danger. And danger there is as both the sea and land are filled with terrifying monsters. Or cute, depending on who you ask. It’s powerful, heartwarming and a guaranteed tearjerker.

My initial impression is that it feels like How To Train Your Dragon meets Treasure Planet. I predict that there will be more to the terrifying beasts than meet the eye. Same for our plucky stowaway and the seemingly gruff, unfeeling monster hunter. The Seat Beast is from director Chris Williams who is behind other notable animated movies such as Moana and Big Hero 6. With this in mind, the audience will be in store for high action, big emotion and brilliant writing.

The Sea Beast will sail into select theaters later this month. It will then make its Netflix debut on July 8, 2022.
