That the great volume of Disney’s business is not in its branch of film and television but in the amusement parks (well, lately it has decreased a lot) is what makes us understand news like this. Ronald D. Moore (‘Battlestar Galactica’) is developing various series based on Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom, as The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Thus, the scriptwriter of the current ‘Outlander’ and ‘For all humanity’ has several projects to exploit the lore of these parks. The first project will be ‘The Society of Explores and Aventurers’, loosely based on the fictitious organization that swarms those lands. In this world both the theme lands and the characters in the parks and Disney movies all exist in another reality.
Cinematic Universe Disneyland
But this would not stop there, but this would be the first step to a whole Cinematic Universe similar to that of Marvel and Star Wars based in Disneyland, for which he would be working with the Imagineering, the engineers and creatives responsible for designing the different attractions and other aspects of the parks.
This news comes a fortnight later to know the billionaire signing (eight figures, it is commented) of Ronald D. Moore by Disney – 20th Century, specifically – ending years at Sony. A signing whose first project would be the Disney + series adaptation of ‘Los robinsones de los mares del sur’ with Jonn M. Chu.
Still we are in the early phase of the project, but as I said at the beginning, all this is part of the principle of synergy that governs Disney almost from the very beginning of the company. Something that they have already tried with relative success with adaptations of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ or ‘Tomorrowland’.
