Michael Chabon on board to write Disney’s MAGIC KINGDOM
Disney's MAGIC KINGDOM is quickly coming together, and all the puzzle pieces are seemingly falling into place. We found out not too long ago that Jon Favreau was brought on board as the director, but the writer of the film has been a mystery up until this point.
Several months ago, there was word that Michael Chabon could be brought on as the scribe. That word ended up being a reality, as Disney has officially hired him for the job.
Very little is known about the plot for MAGIC KINGDOM, other than that it will take place at Disney's flagship theme park. Favreau and Chabon have reportedly spent time at the Anaheim theme park, most likely conceptualizing with the film. This won't be Chabon's first time working for Disney either, as he helped out on the Snow White project THE ORDER OF THE SEVEN and the upcoming sci-fi film JOHN CARTER.
MAGIC KINGDOM is the kind of film I hope stays under wraps as long as possible, as the mystery is half of the appeal. It seems like the team they are putting together for the film might just be the right team, and it keeps getting more exciting by the minute.
