Walt Disney Heads to the Magic Kingdom

Disney developing Magic Kingdom movie 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.

Magic Kingdom is in development .

        A lot of negative comments here from people who will probably end up watching the movie anyways.

        Just keep an open mind and give yourself some imagination. It's a actually a pretty interesting concept... sort of like Kingdom Keepers meets Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

              Why are there so many haters on the internet. Summit10, it's Hollywood business, which has ALWAYS been about making money, just like any industry is for. This looks interesting.

                  Positively not, Magic Kingdom would be confusing since Terry Brook's Magic Kingdom has a similar title
