Though Disney has expanded its media empire by acquisitions like Marvel and Star Wars, the corporate nonetheless likes to dish out cinematic fairy tale adaptations to the plenty prefer it’s been doing for practically a century. In recent times Disney has been taking lots of its animated classics and turning them into dwell motion variations, and whereas a few of these films are comparatively trustworthy to the unique, like Beauty and the Beast, others have taken extra inventive liberties, like Maleficent. We are able to now add one other film into the latter class, because it was reported at the moment that Disney is dusting off its live action Prince Charming movie, solely it will not be centered on the engaging protagonist who’s popped up in a number of of the Mouse Home’s films.
Disney has employed Wonder director/author Stephen Chbosky to pen the Prince Charming film, and it is doable he might sit within the director’s chair for this undertaking, too. Two years in the past, Matt Fogel was employed to write down the preliminary script for this undertaking, which was mentioned to be a revisionist tackle the Prince Charming fairy story idea. Based on THR, the film will observe the viewpoint of Prince Charming’s brother, who “by no means fairly lived as much as the household identify.” David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are hooked up as producers.
Together with helming and penning the upcoming Surprise, which stars Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay, Chbosky is well-known for writing the 1999 novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which he later translated into a feature film starring Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller. Chbosky additionally wrote the current Magnificence and the Beast remake, which stays the highest-grossing film of 2017 thus far.
Throughout the Disney realm, the Prince Charming character has appeared in films like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella and Sleeping Magnificence amongst others. It is unclear if this film can be based mostly on any of these earlier variations (which may subsequently imply considered one of their princess important others may even seem) or if it will likely be an unique Prince Charming iteration, although contemplating that this story can be centered on his brother, it in all probability will not make a lot of a distinction both manner.
Whereas Disney‘s dwell motion fairy story remakes have been earnest and honest, this Prince Charming film sounds prefer it may work effectively as a comedy much like 2007’s Enchanted, which additionally parodied Disney’s fairy story tropes. Maybe the opposite Charming will go on a journey to flee his brother’s shadow, and as soon as he realizes that he isn’t lower out to woo random well-dressed Disney girls, he can lastly discover happiness elsewhere.
