    The Chronicles of Prydain

    Movie: Disney Acquires Rights to Develop | Variety

    I loved the hell out of this series as a kid. Way better than Narnia. Its like the LotR for younger readers. I'd forgotten all about them until seeing this news, just been reading some wiki on the lore and it brings back a flood of memories just seeing the names of the characters, places, magic and weapons. And I don't even remember the stories too well, but still such a lasting impression. You may recall Disney's old animated attempt at a film adaptation called "The Black Cauldron". Which didn't really play too closely to the source material overall but it was trying to be a stand alone film, not capture a series.

    It'll probably suck or be some ultra kiddie crap or both.

    Disney has acquired movie rights to the fantasy series “The Chronicles of Prydain” and is in early development on the project, Variety has learned.

    The five novels by Lloyd Alexander, based on Welsh mythology, were published annually from 1964 to 1968 and followed the protagonist Taran from youth to maturity. He’s an assistant pig-keeper but initially dreams of being a grand hero.

    The books are set in the magical land of Prydain, which resembles ancient Wales and is engaged in a series of battles with Annuvin, the Land of Death.

    Other key characters are the young princess Eilonwy, the bard Fflewddur Fflam and a wild creature named Gurgi.

    The books are “The Book of Three,” “The Black Cauldron,” “The Castle Llyr,” “Taran Wanderer” and “The High King.” The final book won the John Newbery Medal, given by the Association for Library Service to Children.

    Sam Dickerman is the Disney executive on the project, which has not yet been set with a producer, director or writer.

    The first two books in the series served as the basis for Disney’s 1985 animated fantasy movie “The Black Cauldron,” in which a Horned King sought to secure an ancient magical cauldron that would aid him in his desire to conquer the world.

    The film, directed by Ted Berman and Richard Rich, was the first Disney animated film to include computer-generated imagery. The movie, which carried a $44 million budget, failed to generate significant interest, with a $21 million domestic gross, and was not distributed as a home video release for more than a decade.

    I have The Black Cauldron on DVD. I saw it in the theater as a kid and it took forever for Disney to release it to home video. It was considered very un Disney.

    Disney is doing Lloyd Alexander's incredible retelling of the Welsh version of Idylls of the King and fairy tales? How could that possibly go wrong?

    Fan fucking tastic. I look forward to the Bible in 2721 where Jesus is a dancing fucking mouse who challenges Satan the bunny to a dance off.
