Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken is a refreshing take on the mythological creature genre, as it presents a unique perspective on the Kraken that goes beyond its usual portrayal as a monstrous destroyer of ships. Instead, the film explores the idea of Krakens as guardians, adding depth and complexity to the creature’s character. By presenting mermaids as the real monsters, the movie challenges traditional notions of beauty and danger in popular culture. With Universal Studios’ reputation for transforming traditionally feared creatures into beloved characters, audiences can expect a heartwarming and entertaining story. In addition to the talented director, Kirk DeMicco, the co-director Faryn Pearl’s involvement in the project adds to the anticipation, as her background in the art department of She-ra Princesses of Power hints at a stunning visual spectacle.
