You're next, "Fantasia"! Part of you is next anyway. There's officially no end to the Disney live-action adaptations. Like brooms with buckets of water, they just keep coming. But never mind those brooms because that's not the part of "Fantasia" that Disney is taking on next.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is skipping "Sorcerer's Apprentice" -- Mickey and the brooms -- and basing a script on the "Night on Bald Mountain" section of the 1940 classic. That's the dark, haunting, glorious segment focused on a winged demon-like creature who raised spirits from the dead. Here's a refresher:
Classic. Not sure how they're going to turn that into a live-action movie, but sources told THR it'll be similar to the Angelina Jolie "Maleficent" adaptation. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are writing the script and producing the movie, which is in early development.
Are you curious to see how this turns out? Could be awesome. Could be awful. Could just get more people interested in re-watching the original "Fantasia."
