Deadline reports that the film, which will feature close to 3,200 storyboard images and paintings, is currently eyeing a release in 2017.

Richardson will also serve as executive producer of the feature. In a statement he said, "I’ve always wanted to see an animated feature that shows characters focused on overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles, inflexible cultural beliefs and self-doubt."

The project will be featured for private viewing at this week’s American Film Market.
