It may be several more months before Disney’s Magic Kingdom is flooded again with thousands of tourists, but Disney hopes millions more will be looking for another type of vacation to the happiest place on Earth. According to Hollywood Reporter, For all mankind Founder Ronald D. Moore is leading the development of a universe made up of projects based on (what else?) Disney’s “parks and classic movies” for Disney +.
Famous for his work on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,, Battlestar Galactica,, Alien, and his current NASA speculative drama on Apple TV, Moore’s upcoming Disney + franchise is set in the universe of Disney’s Favorite Magic Kingdom. The franchise will include a TV show, The Society of Researchers and Adventurers, which takes place “in a world where all the themed lands and characters of the parks and classic Disney movies actually exist in a different reality.” Moore will also write the executive producer of the series.
Per THRMoore is also working with the Disney Imagineering team to explore which existing Disney characters, park attractions or classic movie properties could serve as a starting point for a movie or TV show. Pirates of the Caribbean-style. After all, Moore is already working on it Swiss Robinson family series with Crazy rich Asians directed by John M. Chu.
Moore and Disney probably have a vault full of ideas, but in case they want our two cents, we’d like to put forward the idea of an alternative Congress drama in history with young Bob Dole. Stay with us. The title? Dole Whip.
