LOS ANGELES (March 12, 2019) – Exodus Film Group announced today they will partner with Nick Cannon and his Ncredible Entertainment banner to produce a full-length animated feature, Pierre The Pigeon-Hawk. Exodus’ John D. Eraklis is set to direct. Nick Cannon (“Wild ‘n Out”, “The Masked Singer”) will voice the lead character, oversee the music and produce under his Ncredible Entertainment banner with Michael Goldman serving as Executive Producer.

Set in NYC, Pierre The Pigeon-Hawk is a musically driven animated comedy that promotes diversity, inclusion, and community. Born as a product of forbidden love between a hawk and a pigeon…Pierre is rejected by both the pigeon and hawk communities. Dejected and confused, Pierre sets out on a mission to find out where he belongs. During his adventure, he unites with a band of unlikely friends including a bear that has recently escaped from the Central Park Zoo, an owl whose genius is outweighed only by his madness, and a pair of rag tag, pop-cultured city squirrels with attitude. Amidst a journey of self-discovery, Pierre finds the courage to inspire animals from all backgrounds to change their ways and open their minds to a new way of thinking. It will take a hybrid bird to unite a hybrid world.
Cannon said, “It’s always such a pleasure working with friends and combining forces with industry veterans to create fun content for all ages.”
Sugar Water Entertainment’s Ciaran Crampton said, “We couldn’t be more excited to be working with John and Nick and their seasoned teams at Exodus and Ncredible to bring this comedic, powerful and timely tale to life.
