Here’s the synopsis and character descriptions:
Sweet, awkward 16-year-old Ruby Gillman (Lana Condor, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise) is desperate to fit in at Oceanside High, but mostly she just feels invisible.
She teaches math to her beloved skater-boy (Jaboukie Young-White, Ralph Breaks the Internet), who only seems to admire her for her fractals, and she’s not allowed to hang out with the cool kids at the beach because her overprotective super mom (Oscar® nominee Toni Collette, Knives Out), has forbidden Ruby from ever entering the water.
But when she breaks her mom’s #1 rule, Ruby will discover that she is a direct descendant of the Kraken warrior queens and is destined to inherit the throne from her formidable grandmother (Academy Award® winner Jane Fonda), the Warrior Queen of the Seven . Seas.
The Kraken have sworn to protect the world’s oceans from the vain, power-hungry mermaids who have battled the Kraken for centuries. There’s one major and immediate problem with this: the beautiful, popular new girl at school, Chelsea (Emmy-winner Annie Murphy, Schitt’s Creek) happens to be a mermaid. Ruby will eventually need to embrace who she is and try to protect those she loves the most.
Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken stars an extraordinary cast that includes Emmy winner Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead) as Ruby’s supportive father, Emmy nominee Sam Richardson (Veep) as Ruby’s enthusiastic uncle, and Blue Chapman (Council of Dads) as Ruby’s .
This looks like a very cute movie with a different story from the ocean. Check out the trailer and poster of the film below and see Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken in theaters this summer on June 30.
