Whew! We’re buried in news from the Walt Disney Company investor day!
We’ve already told you about the upcoming Ch-Ch-Ch-Chip ‘n’ Dale show, several new Pixar series, and the release date for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier — ALL on Disney+. Now, we’re telling you about even MORE shows that are coming!
During today’s investor call, Disney dumped a lot of information on it and we’re honestly FREAKING OUT about all the updates! Chairman of Entertainment for Walt Disney Television Dana Walden announced THREE upcoming new Disney+ original series.
First up, they announced The Swiss Family Robinson show from Crazy Rich Asian‘s John Chu. It will be written and produced by Outlander and Battlestar Galactica’s Ron Moore. Yes, you read that right — Disney’s 60-year-old film about a shipwrecked family is back as a new series!
The service will also be getting a Percy Jackson and the Olympians show based on the young adult novels of the same name. Two Percy Jackson films were previously released by 20th Century Fox back in 2010 and 2013!
Finally, a series based on the book rated one of the best young adult novels of ALL TIME is coming to Disney+, The Mysterious Benedict Society. The story is about especially gifted children and their efforts to stop a nefarious villain (it’s Emmy Award winner Tony Hale, in MULTIPLE roles!) is coming soon too!
