Music video and commercial director Pete Candeland has inked a deal with Disney to direct an upcoming graphic novel adapation The Stuff of Legend.

The graphic novels follow a young boy in 1944 that is abducted by the Boogeyman and dragged into a closet realm called "The Dark." The boy's dog mounts a rescue mission with all of his toys to bring the boy back to safety. A war ensues between the Boogeyman's forces and the toys, who become large and agile creatures.

The Th3rd World Studios graphic novel series is written by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III.

We reported in April that the director is also attached to make Mr. Toad's Wild Ride for Disney. Both projects are still in early stages of development.
