Development Pitch

Zorax Zoomster is a fresh, new sci-fi original story that tells a thrilling adventure of a teenage alien hero group battling for freedom in a futuristic dystopian universe. As the story develops, Zorax’s team of heroes grows, each member possessing a unique superpower and personality to go along with it. Zorax’s galaxy taps into the fun of alliteration with most people and places beginning with the letter Z, encouraging the audience to really pay attention to who each character is and expand their imagination. The story is centered around determination, teamwork, patience, growth, forgiveness, and the battle for liberation against oppression. There are countless mini adventures and action-packed scenes in the book, sustaining the audience’s engagement and building overall excitement through the entire story arc. I envision an adaptation of this story as a 3D animated movie with mature-looking characters with a dark element of color schemes, music score, and suspenseful cinematic action. It could easily as well be a TV series, with the first season focusing on the entirety of the first book or the first half. The story has the potential to be one of the biggest hero quest stories of this time and could be the next massive, unforgettable franchise to hit Netflix or the theatres over the next several years with even greater and bigger story arches to come with the later books of the series.
