Disney's Magic Kingdom will live up to its name in an upcoming film in which the theme park actually comes alive.
Deadline.com reports that "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau is set to take on "Magic Kingdom," a fantasy film along the lines of "Night at the Museum," only instead of exhibits coming to life, it will be Disney's legendary park attractions.
Though Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" is already a successful film franchise and Eddie Murphy starred in 2003's "Haunted Mansion," this will be the first movie based on an entire park.
A production date and cast lineup for "Magic Kingdom" have yet to be announced, but in the meantime there are a slew of Disney-related films in the works, including "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," directed by David Fincher; another "Haunted Mansion," produced by Guillermo del Toro; "Maleficent," a film about the "Sleeping Beauty" witch directed by Tim Burton and possibly starring Angelina Jolie; and "Tiki," an Ahmet Zappa-scripted movie rumored to be inspired by Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room.
I can't wait for this movie! I wish I could be in it as I love Kingdom Keepers (book it is sort of based on)! Oh well. Im not exactly famous or anything so probably won't get a part.
Walt Disney World never ceases to amaze the people. Their movies are loved by numerous kids and adults and their theme park attractions and rides are unforgettable
Favreau's ok. Loved Iron Man 1. Hated part 2, but that wasn't really his fault.
I'm looking forward to this I hope they start filming before the end of the year. I hope that the movie will cause Disney to being back http://www.vmk.com as I really miss the Virtual Magic Kingdom mmorpg experience but hopefully it'll be more in the art style and magnitude of NEXON's Dragon Nest or Maple Story.
OH OH OH if they do a sleeping beauty moving it shouldnt star angelina....thats a job for Megan Fox....her role? Lay there look beautiful and dont say a word. Classic acting...HAHAHA
Ironman was good but ironman 2 sucked im sure this movie will 2
Hey trish, why don't you just let him stick the whole thing in! LMAO
I would definitely let him stick the tip in.
I just wonder what small part Mr. Favreau will play in the movie (like when he played the driver in Iron Man 1 and 2)?
Should be interesting. I just hope its better than Night of the Museum. That movie was waaaaaaay overrated.
Iho- Indont think Night At The Museum was overrated, it was enjoyable, however i'm sure we can agree that the 2nd installment was quite a disappointment.
Iron Man 1 and 2 and Zathura shows that Magic Kingdom is in good directing hands.
Disneys self-promotion knows no bounds.
One of the most talented people in the business.
