New Animated Projects For ‘Pinocchio,’ ‘Alice In Wonderland,’ and ‘Fantasia’ In The Works For Disney+
We are little under 4 weeks away from the launch of Disney+, and with the streamer set release a variety of original content, the studio is looking to develop new projects with their existing IP.
According to our friends at HN Entertainment, the studio is in early development on animated projects that center on Jiminy Cricket (Pinocchio), the Cheshire Cat (Alice In Wonderland), a project on the classic Disney musical Fantasia (that may or may not feature Mickey Mouse), they are also hearing there may be one centered around Snow White’s seven dwarfs.
As of now it is unknown if these properties are being developed for a series, shorts, or feature film. Hardcore Disney fans will remember that Jiminy Cricket was once apart of many Disney shorts, and films outside of Pinocchio.
Going this route is a great way to reintroduce these characters to a new generation of families, and those longing for the return of traditional animation (2D) May get their wish soon enough. It’s also a refreshing take that differs from the studios financially successful live-action remakes, that show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Disney+ is set to launch on November 12, 2019. The streamer will include original films including Lady and the Tramp, Noelle, Timmy Failure, Stargirl, other properties coming include Monsters At Work, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, The Mandalorian, not to mention all the other Marvel, Star Wars, docuseries, and more in active development.
