Jon Favreau to direct Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Making theme park movie

Magic Kingdom

Disney are looking to expand their theme-park-to-movie stock, having hired director Jon Favreau for Magic Kingdom.

The Magic Kingdom theme park is one of the biggest at the Walt Disney World Resort, and is most recognisable as the home of the Cinderella Castle, as well as the Thunder Mountain Railroad among other attractions.

Iron Man helmer Favreau will be in charge of the adap, with Heat Vision reporting that the film revolves around “the Disneyland theme park in which attractions and characters come to life”.

Which tells us zip about what the film will really be about. Will it merely end up as an extended version of those Disney resort ads where Dumbo and co greet theme park visitors?

Considering Favs is the man behind the awesome-looking Cowboys & Aliens, we’re sure he’s got something slightly more enticing on the cards.

Are movies based on theme parks really any good? Tell us below...

      Sounds like a waste of the man's time and talent...

      This is most likely an adaptation of the book kingdom keepers in which the characters in magic kingdom come to life and the villains try to take over and a group of teenagers are recruited to stop them
