Disney's Prince Charming
Now, another live action movie has been announced today and its not what you would expect. At first glance, it almost seems like Disney is scrapping from the bottom of the barrel. There is going to be a live action movie based on Prince Charming. Yep, I don't know what princess or how this movie will work, but Prince Charming-the movie is coming soon.
My source says the following:
"Disney is continuing its push into live-action fairy tales, closing a deal for a feature project centering on Prince Charming…Details are being kept behind a moat, but the script is described as a revisionist take on the fairy tales."
A revisionist take on fairy tales? Hasn't that been their approach to all of these live-action movies so far? That sure doesn't give us a whole lot. But I can't even begin to imagine what this will look like. Will this be an origin story? Will we learn where Prince Charming came from? Will we learn how he met Cinderella? Or Snow White? Or whomever this movie revolves around? Will it revolve around any of the princesses? Who knows. It will be interesting to at least see what Disney has in store for this. But since Prince Charming was never really its own story, what could Disney do with it?
If Disney went the Fables route, I'd be overjoyed, but that will never happen.
More on this as it progresses...
