Disney is reportedly set to bring back its beloved “Magic” animated film to the big screen for the first time ever.
The film, based on the beloved children’s book series, will debut at the Cannes Film Festival in June.
Disney will be bringing back the film in its entirety to coincide with the premiere of “Finding Dory”, the new Disney-Pixar animated film that stars Dory, the first “Dory” film to be released in theaters.
The news comes from Disney’s sister company, Pixar, which announced in September that it would be producing and producing the film.
Disney acquired Pixar in 2019 for $2.4bn.
The announcement of “Magic”, which will be released globally, comes after the release of “Coco” and “Cinderella”, Disney’s first animated feature to feature an African-American lead.
The Disney/Pixars “Catch Me If You Can” sequel, “Magic Kingdom” sequel and “Frozen” spinoff are expected to begin production in the second half of 2019.
In addition to the new film, Disney is also reportedly planning to release its first new feature film in nine years, “The Little Mermaid”, to theaters on July 12.
Disney’s “Catching Fire” franchise is a family-friendly children’s animated comedy featuring the adventures of Ariel and her family.
The film is expected to debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019.
