‘Kingdom Keepers’ Series Reportedly in The Works For Disney+
Disney is reportedly in early development on a Kingdom Keeper series, which would be exclusive for the company’s streamer, Disney+. The news comes from director/actor Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob). During his most recent episode of his popular geek-podcast, Fatman Beyond.
Kevin Smith said:
I saw that wall in real life, when we were working on the Disney, uh… when we were working on the potential Disney+ show Kingdom Keepers. They brought me in for, like, a tech day, and they were like, ‘this wall here can duplicate any background’
Back in 2018, Kevin Smith said he was working on a television series based on a “massive IP,” and in 2019, reports surfaced that Kevin Smith was working on an unknown Disney project. So could Kingdom Keepers actually be a project Kevin Smith is involved in? We can’t say yes or no, but we like connecting the imaginary dots.
The Kingdom Keepers is a popular book series for kids, teenagers and adults, written by Ridley Pearson and published by Disney Hyperion.
For those who are not familiar with the books, in the Kingdom Keepers series, five teens have been chosen to act as models for holographic guides at Walt Disney World. But the cutting-edge technology has a glitch; when the kids fall asleep, they are transported to the Parks in their holographic forms. The ensuing adventures take readers on a rollicking ride as the Kingdom Keepers fight to prevent Disney’s destruction.
The series features seven novels. The first novel Disney After Dark was published in 2005, the second novel Disney at Dawn was published in 2008, the third novel Disney In Shadow was published in 2010, the fourth novel Power Play was published in 2011, the fifth novel Shell Game was published in 2012, the sixth novel Dark Passage was published in 2013 and the last novel The Insider was published in 2014.
