Favreau Talks Long-Rumored Magic Kingdom Disney Film

By April 8, 2016Hollywood News

Director Jon Favreau has had a long-gestating project of his at Disney that may finally see the greenlight after strong reviews of his upcoming live action The Jungle Book.  That project is called Magic Kingdom.

Favreau was working with Pixar on shaping the script for the movie, which would show Disneyland coming to life and feature the most iconic Disney characters interacting with each other.

When recently asked about the long-rumored project, Favreau detailed:

“Well, hopefully now with [The Jungle Book], if it works out well, we can explore what Magic Kingdom could be. Magic Kingdom is a story I’ve been developing. Michael Chabon wrote the draft about Disneyland coming to life, and all of the different lands and attractions all overlapping one another and creating a big adventure that a family gets caught up in. It’s something I feel very passionate about. Part of the reason I explored this technology I used on The Jungle Book is because I was considering it for that film, and maybe it might be something we work together on.”
