Walt Disney Pictures is in development of a brand new live-action musical and amazingly enough, there is not a princess or talking animal is in sight!
The new concept, currently being titled “Cyrano the Moor”, will be set in the Bristol region of England. It is based on a mashup of two classic stories Othello (William Shakespeare) and Cyrano de Bergerac (Edmond Rostand). Disney plans for this to be as lavish show as its previous live action movies “Cinderella” and “Beauty and the Beast“.
Disney already has some big names attached to this project too. Tarell Alvin McCraney, Oscar winner for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Moonlight”, will be undertaking writing the musical’s script. , Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in “Selma”, will be starring in Disney’s “Cyrano the Moor”.
