Yet another classic Disney film will reportedly be added to the studio’s ever-growing roster of live-action adaptations. According to The Illuminerdi, an adaptation of Atlantis: The Lost Empire is in early development.
The studio currently has several new adaptations in development, including Hercules, Robin Hood, and Tarzan. But one film fans have long pushed for is the 2001 animated feature Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire differed greatly from many Disney animated features. Unlike other films, it was not a musical; rather, it drew more inspiration from classic adventure stories. The movie did not perform well at the box-office, only grossing $186.1 million; however, it has since become a cult classic.
The film follows the young scholar Milo Thatch in 1914 who sets out to discover the lost city of Atlantis. Milo sets out on an expedition with a unique crew and comes into contact with the inhabitants of the thriving city. He goes on to help the princess Kida discover the secrets of Atlantis and uncovers a nefarious plot.
Currently, the film is in very early development, so no one has been cast in the feature. Additionally, the studio does not have a creative team in place to helm the project.
