Warrior Nun is an American fantasy drama web television series created by Simon Barry based on the comic book character Warrior Nun Areala by Ben Dunn.
Originally developed as a feature film adaptation, the idea was re-imagined as a television series for Netflix when the service had given the production a series order for the first season. Filming takes place in multiple locations in Spain.
The series is narrated and led by Portuguese actress Alba Baptista in the role of Ava Silva, a tetraplegic orphan who discovers she now has powers that force her to join an ancient order of warrior nuns. The series marks Baptista’s English-language debut. The cast also features Toya Turner, Thekla Reuten, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, and Tristan Ulloa.
The series debuted on July 2, 2020 on Netflix
The Embassy completed almost 700 VFX shots and designed the main title for the 10-episode fantasy drama. Reuniting with Netflix, The Embassy provided full VFX – from concept design to on-set supervision. See how some of that work came together in this VFX breakdown.
