As Disney prepares to launch its new streaming service, Disney+, news about the various projects being developed for the service continue to come out. Now, a new show has been announced based on some classic Disney characters.
Disney and ABC will be developing Book Of Enchantment, a television show based on a series of novels by Serena Valentino. It focuses primarily on Disney villains like Maleficent and Ursula and how their stories interconnect in an epic fantasy world. Since the project has just been announced, there is no word yet on casting or filming dates.
There are currently five books in the series. The first three focus on Ursula from The Little Mermaid, The Beast from Beauty and The Beast, and The Evil Queen from Snow White. Book four focuses on Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and book five on Mother Gothel from Tangled.
Disney+ is expected to launch later this year. Previously announced shows for the service include Marvel series based on Loki and Scarlet Witch, a television version of High School Musical and the newest season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Several movies are also being made for the service, including another Muppets reboot as well as an updated version of Don Quixote.
