Skydance Gets Into Animated Features

Skydance Media (“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” “Star Trek Beyond”) has launched an animation division and formed a multi-year partnership with Madrid-based CG animation studios Ilion.

The pair will develop and produce a slate of high-end animated feature films and television series kicking off with two animated feature films currently in development.

Linda Woolverton (“Maleficent”) penned the first which follows 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.

Woolverton, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Ignacio Pwrez Dolset and Jose F San Roman will produce and a 2019 release is planned.

The second is titled “Luck,” a comedy that pulls back the curtain on the millennia-old battle between the organizations of good luck and bad luck that secretly affects our daily lives. Jonathan Aibel & Glenn Berger (“Kung Fu Panda” trilogy) are writing the script and will serve as producers .
