Walt Disney Pictures is not just turning one theme park attraction into a movie for its next family outing. It's turning all of Disneyland into a fantastical new adventure with a big screen project entitled Magic Kingdom.
Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore wrote the original script for Magic Kingdom based on his own pitch to Disney, with a story set entirely inside Disneyland. However, Disney is now looking to develop the movie even further, seeking out another writer for the project. Variety revealed that Disney is still looking to use their iconic theme park as the setting for this upcoming fantasy, which will be similar in tone to Night at the Museum.
Magic Kingdom will feature a number of Disney icons such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy, rather than just hint at them in the way that Enchanted did in 2007. The movie is said to be Disney's version of The Avengers, and will introduce the studio's lineup of classic characters to younger audiences who may not be familiar with them.
