Daisy Ridley joins The Inventor

We may know her better as a scavenger, but in the real world Daisy Ridley and Stephen Fry are joining the voice cast of The Inventor, a full-length, stop-motion animated movie from long-time Pixar writer Jim Capobianco.

The story will follow the life of the insatiably curious and headstrong inventor Leonardo da Vinci (Fry) as he leaves Italy to join the French court, where he can experiment freely, inventing flying contraptions, incredible machines, and studying the human body. There, joined by the princess Marguerite (Ridley), he looks to answer the ultimate question — what is the meaning of it all?

“We are making this film for children and the child in many adults. It has action, adventure, beauty and humor,” Capobianco and producer Robert Rippberger said in a statement carried by Deadline “We hope it will spark curiosity in its young audience and inspire girls and boys to become the Leonardo’s of the 21st century.”

Work begins in August 2021 for a 2023 release.
