Disney+ may be looking at expanding their streaming library with Ridley Pearson’s Kingdom Keepers, according to Fatman Beyond.
Writer and director Kevin Smith revealed that he’d previously seen an outline for the show while visiting Disney. The director added this:
“I saw that wall in real life, when we were working on the Disney, uh… when we were working on the potential Disney+ show Kingdom Keepers. They brought me in for, like, a tech day, and they were like, ‘this wall here can duplicate any background.”
In 2018, Smith teased working on a “massive IP” and in 2019 it was revealed to be a Disney project. It’s unclear if this was the show but if Smith is talking about it openly with no other announcement, it’s safe to assume he’s off the project. Still, this shows that Disney is considering the young adult novels as a potential television series.
The series revolves around five teenagers who have been hired to be virtual hosts at Walt Disney World. However, at night, the technology used to record their holographic selves glitches and sucks the five teens into their hologram forms inside the park. They must now figure out why this is happening and why the rides and attractions come alive as well.
The series could be an “Avengers” level series for the company. Bringing in all of their IP and potentially the actors who portrayed the characters in live-action. Imagine Angelina Jolie returning as “Maleficent” and wandering the park in search of the heroes.
