Walt Disney production is developing a movie about Disney about the creation of Disneyland. Yes, that’s right. The production house is going to make a movie showing the journey of the American entrepreneur Walt Disney. It will capture his struggles creating Disneyland. The film will stream on Disney +.
David Gordon Green is directing the movie. Evan Spiliotopoulos is writing the screenplay for the same. He is popular for Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and “Snow White and the Huntsmen”.
Disneyland debuted in Anaheim, California, during the summer of 1955. Despite the fact that Disney parks were later established in other parts too. Disneyland is in Florida, Paris, and other parts of the world too. The California original is Disney’s only theme park that was built under the direct supervision of the man whose name inspired one of the biggest production houses.
The upcoming film is not a new attempt to capture Disney’s success
Theme parks are a major source of content for the company. Major motion movies derive inspiration from attractions like “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “The Haunted Mansion,” and “The Jungle Cruise.” Not every theme park has inspired and made it to the big screen. In contrast, some of Disney’s most popular film franchises, such as Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge and Marvel’s Avengers Campus, have blazed the way for themed sections.
The upcoming film is not a new attempt to capture Disney’s success. In 2013, the studio cast Tom Hanks in the role of its founder in “Saving Mr. Banks.” It’s a biographical drama about the film producer and entrepreneur’s quest for Mary Poppins rights. Some other ventures that have also shown interest in the journey of Disneyland had been the documentaries like The Imagineering Story and Behind the Attraction on Disney+.
Cavalry Media is producing the film. The producers of the film are Dana Brunetti, Matt DelPiano, and Jason Reed. Jessica Matthews is the executive producer. The news about this film was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
