Musical Based On Lionel Richie Catalogue In The Works At Disney

Lionel Richie is one of the most legendary musicians in American history and now his iconic catalogue of songs has been acquired by Walt Disney Studios, who are developing a movie musical based around the hits.

The musical, tentatively titled All Night Long, will be penned by Pete Chiarelli (Crazy Rich Asians, The Proposal) and is currently be planned as a live-action theatrical project that will use some of Richie’s greatest hits to guide its story. Though no further details have been given regarding the plot, the film is being described as more akin to the likes of jukebox musicals such as Mamma Mia, which was based around ABBA’s catalogue, and will seek to take advantage of other recent music movie hits such as Rocketman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Yesterday.

Richie and his manager Bruce Eskowitz are attached to produce the film alongside Cavalry Media executives Dana Brunetti and Matt Del Piano. The concept for the film came from the four-time Grammy winner himself, who sold the pitch to the House of Mouse in January. Richie currently works as a host for American Idol on the Disney-owned ABC alongside Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, having joined the hit musical competition series in 2018 for its sixteenth season.

Richie has sold a reported 90 million records worldwide in his 50-year career, also having been nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Original Song for “Endless Love” from the 1981 film of the same name, “Say You Say Me” from 1985’s White Nights and “Miss Celie’s Blues” from 1985’s The Color Purple, taking home the award for the second. Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson also co-wrote the 1985 charity anthem, “We Are The World”.

Walt Disney Studios’ “The One And Only Ivan” Based On The Bestselling Book To Premiere On Disney+ August 21, 2020

The Walt Disney Studios announced today that the heartwarming adventure “The One and Only Ivan,” an adaptation of the bestselling, award-winning book about one very special gorilla directed by Thea Sharrock, will premiere exclusively on Disney+ August 21, 2020.

The film, which was previously scheduled to be released theatrically by The Walt Disney Studios, is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization and the significance of the place one calls home. “The One and Only Ivan,” which comes to the screen in an impressive hybrid of live-action and CGI, is based on Katherine Applegate’s book, which won numerous awards upon its publication in 2013, including the Newbery Medal.

“The world has changed in a heartbeat. People all over the globe have shared important, life changing experiences in ways we have not seen for a century,” said Thea Sharrock. “In response to this, I am so happy that we can share Katherine Applegate’s delightful and original story, ‘The One and Only Ivan’ with the world this August on Disney+, bringing some joy through this unique movie of true friendship, inspired by a true story.” 

The film features the voices of: Sam Rockwell as the gorilla Ivan; Angelina Jolie as Stella the elephant; Danny DeVito as Bob the dog; Helen Mirren as Snickers the poodle; Chaka Khan as Henrietta the chicken; Mike White as Frankie the seal; Brooklynn Prince as Ruby the baby elephant; Ron Funches as Murphy the rabbit; Phillipa Soo as Thelma the parrot; and stars Ramon Rodriguez, Ariana Greenblatt and Bryan Cranston. “The One and Only Ivan” is directed by Thea Sharrock from a screenplay by Mike White based on Applegate’s novel and is produced by the late Allison Shearmur, p.g.a., Angelina Jolie and Brigham Taylor, p.g.a. Sue Baden-Powell and Thea Sharrock serve as executive producers.

Ivan is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant and Bob the dog. He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby arrives, it touches something deep within him. Ruby is recently separated from her family in the wild, which causes him to question his life, where he comes from and where he ultimately wants to be.

Disneyland Resort Proposes Plans To Begin Phased Reopening Beginning July 9

Sixty-five years to the date after the historic opening of Disneyland park, the beloved theme park is planning to open their gates once again on July 17, 2020, welcoming guests back to the Disneyland Resort. 

Disney Parks, Experiences and Products announced proposed plans for a phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort. Pending state and local government approvals, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel plan to reopen on July 23, and Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park will plan to reopen on July 17. Additionally, Downtown Disney District will begin reopening on July 9.  

Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing, the Disneyland Resort will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that will require all guests, including Annual Passholders, to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Theme park reservations will be subject to availability. More details about this new reservation system will be available soon. At this time, there will also be a temporary pause on new ticket sales and Annual Passport sales and renewals. Additional details will be available soon. Please check disneyland.com for the most current information. 

Once approved, the Disneyland Resort will reopen with enhanced health and safety measures. In addition, a Guest Experience Team will be available throughout the parks and Downtown Disney District to assist guests with questions regarding these new policies.

Certain experiences that draw large group gatherings – such as parades and nighttime spectaculars – will return at a later date. While character meet and greets will be temporarily unavailable, characters will be in the parks in new ways to entertain and delight guests.

Pending governmental approval, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa are planned to reopen to guests and members starting on July 23. Plans to support physical distancing as well as increased cleaning measures, along with a number of other health and safety protocols, will be implemented as part of the phased reopening of the hotels and the Vacation Club. 

Downtown Disney District will begin reopening on July 9 in line with the state’s reopening guidelines, with its unique variety of shopping and dining experiences, including the flagship World of Disney store. With the health of guests and Disney cast members at the forefront of planning, several operational changes will be implemented based on guidance from health authorities to promote physical distancing and cleanliness throughout the Downtown Disney District.

Additional information on enhanced health and safety measures and operational changes for reopening locations will be shared soon. These policies are under continuous review and are subject to change as the Disneyland Resort monitors conditions and receives guidance from health and government authorities.

Secret Society of Second Born Royals Will Begin Streaming July 17 On Disney+

The new live-action Disney+ original movie, “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals,” will stream exclusively on the service starting Friday, July 17, 2020.  

Peyton Elizabeth Lee (“Andi Mack”) leads a dynamic ensemble cast of royal recruits who inspires audiences of all ages to forge their own destinies and tap into their inner superheroes.

“Secret Society of Second-Born Royals” follows Sam, a rebellious teenage royal who unknowingly develops superpowers from a genetic trait attributed only to second-borns of royal lineage. Second-in-line to the throne of the kingdom of Illyria, Sam constantly questions what it means to be royal and wants to create her own legacy. Unlike Sam’s picture-perfect older sister Eleanor who will become the next queen, Sam would rather rock out with her bandmate and best friend Mike at an illegal protest or ditch a royal engagement for a wild night out.

Fed up with her daughter’s misbehavior, Queen Catherine sends Sam to a summer boarding school where she and four other second-born royals – Tuma, Roxana, January and Matteo – discover they have unique super-human abilities and are invited to join a secret society with a longstanding tradition of covertly keeping the peace. With a new sense of purpose and a little help from their Secret Society instructor James, Sam and her fellow royal recruits must learn to harness their newfound powers and work together as a team before they can save the world.

Starring is Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Sam; Skylar Astin (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) as James; Olivia Deeble (“Home and Away”) as Roxana; Niles Fitch (“This is Us”) as Tuma; Faly Rakotohavana (“Raven’s Home”) as Matteo; Isabella Blake Thomas (“Once Upon A Time”) as January; Elodie Yung (“Daredevil”) as Queen Catherine; Ashley Liao (“Always Be My Maybe”) as Eleanor; Noah Lomax (“Trial By Fire”) as Mike; and Greg Bryk (“Handmaid’s Tale”) as the villainous Inmate 34.

“Secret Society of Second-Born Royals” is directed by Anna Mastro (Marvel’s “Runaways,” “The Bold Type”) and executive produced by Zanne Devine (“I, Tonya”), Mike Karz (“Valentine’s Day”) and Austin Winsberg (“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) with Juliana Janes (“Butter”) serving as co-producer. The teleplay was written by Alex Litvak (“Masters of the Universe”) and Andrew Green (“Hannah Montana”) and is based on an original story by Litvak, Green and Winsberg.
