Netflix sends in Triggerfish’s Seal Team
Global streamer Netflix will debut South Africa-produced animated movie Seal Team on December 31.
Produced by South Africa-based animation studio Triggerfish, Seal Team follows a group of seals who band together to take on the gang of sharks that have been terrorising their neighbourhood. However, the so-called Seal Team are not prepared for the mission on which they’re about to embark, and chaos ensues.
The movie is directed by Greig Cameron, and co-directed by Kane Croudace. The voice cast includes South African actors Sharlto Copley (District 9) and John Kani (Black Panther), plus Patrick Warburton, JK Simmons, Kristen Schaal and Dolph Lundgren.
“Just announced our third feature film Seal Team will be released on Netflix in most countries,” said Triggerfish on Instagram. “Well done to the fantastic crew and cast who worked on this crazy action-adventure film. Go Seal Team.”
Seal Team’s availability on Netflix will vary from region to region. Other projects coming to Netflix from Triggerfish include new Shondaland animated series Mama K’s Team 4.
