Disney and Amazon could make an animated film together in 2019
Posted November 02, 2019 17:16:30 Disney and Warner Bros. are considering producing an animated version of a book about the history of cinema, according to two sources familiar with the talks.
The project, which would be made by Disney animation studio Pixar, would follow the lives of Walt Disney, Roy Rogers and Sam Spade as they make their way through their early careers as filmmakers.
The books, titled Disney’s First Movies and The Story of the Movies, were published by Penguin Random House in 1966 and 1969.
The authors were Robert L. Wilkins and David Burt.
The authors told the Hollywood Reporter last month that they had “been approached by multiple people” to make the film.
“We would love to do it,” the sources told the publication.
“I think that it’s going to be a fun project to make, and we’d love to make it with Disney and Marvel.”
The sources also said that Disney and Walt Disney Studios are working on a Disney-Pixar film about a time capsule from Disney’s creation of the Disneyland park.
Disney, Warner Bros and Lucasfilm have not responded to requests for comment.
Disney has previously made animated films in the animated form of The Lion King, and The Incredibles.
