Disney has gotten their hooks into Jon Favreau for the big screen adaptation of the Magic Kingdom (as in the huge centerpiece of Disneyland). If they can make Pirates of the Caribbean a movie, why can’t they do the same for the place that’s served as the logo of the studio for decades? According to Heat Vision, Favreau has finalized a deal for the project, and they’re just awaiting completion of the screenplay.
Magic Kingdom is currently in the development stages, and the studio is on the hunt for a screenwriter to revamp the original script that was penned by “Battlestar Gallactica” showrunner, Ron Moore. We’re not sure if this will be Favreau’s next project, because he has one huge tentpole that takes precedent over this film and any others at the moment — Iron Man 3. Disney revealed that the film will hit theaters on May 3, 2013, and we’re not sure if all the loose ends for Magic Kingdom will be tied before the Marvel sequel goes into production.
No plot details have been revealed for Magic Kingdom, all we know is that it will center “around the Disneyland theme park in which attractions and characters come to life.” That leaves a lot to the imagination. Will all the Disney princesses be there? What about the old school “House of Mouse” crew? So many questions, but no answers.
What do you think of Favreau directing Magic Kingdom?
