Initial Logline shared

Genre: Action Comedy

In the bustling, floating cloud city of Blus, every 13 year old’s fate is decided by the revered Noggle ceremony - An official eye exam where you are bestowed with a specific pair of glasses that determine your future profession. But when an audacious 13-year-old Noun discovers the plot of the aristocrats to use an updated version of the Noggles to enslave its citizens, he has to team up with an unlikely band of misfits to save the ones they love.

Comments from Creators:

We discussed many ideas around the noggles. Nothing is concrete yet. But the gist of all the story points was that the noggles were neither good nor bad, but we explore the true meaning behind what it means to be a noun. What do the noggles represent? Maybe by straying too far from the original meaning of the noggles we stray further from the essence of what it means to be a noun. The plight may be to break away from the constraints and conventions imposed on us by society. The final meaning of nouns and noggles will be a positive one, something we drive home at the end of the story. We want to of course highlight the most important aspects of nouns in a positive light. The meaning of the noggles in the story may start off one way, and end up taking on a totally new an inspiring meaning by the end.

First wave of our hero character design direction.
You can see that its going after a very blended form of introducing the protagonist. He can be seen wearing “nounish” traits as form of prominent accessory and its part of how he presents / projects himself outwards.

You can see team notes in there as well.
While thinking about the character - think Quirky, slightly odd ball, unconventional. Agile and Nimble.
His similarities from other animation canonical references
