Variety has reported today that Hulu has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Theodore Ty and Laurent Zeitoun’s animated film Fireheart, which premiered in international cinemas earlier this year to great box-office success.
The movie, written by Zeitoun, Jennica Harper, and Daphne Ballon, stars Olivia Cooke, Kenneth Branagh, and William Shatner.
According to IMDb, the movie tells the story of sixteen-year-old Georgia Nolan who “dreams of being the world’s first-ever female firefighter. When a mysterious arsonist starts burning down Broadway, New York’s firemen begin vanishing. Georgia’s father, Shawn, is called out of retirement by the Mayor of New York to lead the investigation into the disappearances. Desperate to help her father and save her city, Georgia disguises herself as a young man called “Joe” and joins a small group of misfit firefighters trying to stop the arsonist.”
No details on its release date have been provided, but we can expect the movie to come out on the streaming service later this year, likely during the summer season.
