Michael Seitzman (Quantico, Code Black) kini  sedang dalam fasa pembangunan untuk untuk sebuah siri baru terbitan Disney+ yang berjudul Book of Enchantments.

Siri tersebut akan mengambil inspirasi daripada buku cerita tulisan Serena Valentino yang fokus kepada kisah asal-usul 6 watak antagonis klasik Disney.

Contoh sinopsis daripada salah satu buku tersebut adalah seperti berikut:

“The tale of the young princess and her evil stepmother, the Wicked Queen, is widely known. Despite a few variations from telling to telling, the story remains the same: The Queen was jealous of the girl’s beauty and this jealousy culminated in the Queen’s attempt on the sweet, naive girl’s life.

Another tale far less often spoken of is the one that explains what caused the Queen to become so contemptuously vile. Still, some have attempted to guess at the reason. Perhaps the Queen’s true nature was that of a wicked hag and her beautiful, regal appearance a disguise used to fool the King. Others claim that the Queen might have hated the girl for her resemblance to the King’s first wife. Mostly, the Queen is painted as a morally abhorrent woman who never loved another being during the course of her miserable life.”

Once Upon A Time terbitan Studio ABC mempunyai premis dan inspirasi sama serta sudah pun tamat pada Mei 2018 lalu. Ia juga pernah dituduh menciplak idea komik DC Comics/Vertigo berjudul Fables tulisan Bill Willingham.

Book of Enchantments bakal disenaraikan ke dalam barisan siri-siri terbaru terbitan Disney+ lain setakat ini iaitu:

The Mandalorian
Siri Prekuel Filem Rogue One
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Musim ke-7)
The Vision and Scarlet Witch
Loki
Falcon and Winter Soldier 
Mighty Ducks 
Monsters, Inc. 
Muppets Live Another Day

Menurut pengarah Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, kemunculan dan cameo terakhir Stan Lee dalam Semesta Sinematik Marvel (MCU) menerusi filem Captain Marvel bakal menjadi sesuatu yang cukup emosional dan sentimental.

Tanpa mendedahkan sebarang spoiler, berikut adalah kenyataan media yang dikeluarkan oleh pihak mereka:

“I don’t want to get fired now, of all times. It would be so weird if I got fired at this point in time. So I don’t want to say anything I’m not supposed to say, but just that it was. We did want to kind of have a moment and tribute to Stan Lee in this movie, obviously. It was something that came from Marvel and when they showed it to us, there was not a dry eye in the house. It was really emotional. You know it just, it felt right. When you look at the script and you’re like, ‘Where are we gonna put Stan Lee in this movie?”

Ryan Fleck turut berkongsi pengalaman bersama Stan Lee semasa berada di set penggambaran:

“It’s just great when he comes on set it’s, uh, it’s a real honor to meet him. He’s a legend in this business and, uh, everyone really like pays attention and people come out of the woodwork, you know, some crew member you didn’t even know will come out trying to shake his hand. But really, it’s cool.”

Stan Lee telah pergi meninggalkan kita semua buat selama-lamanya pada November lalu tetapi sudah pun siap menjalani penggambaran untuk 2-3 buah filem dan siri televisyen.

Captain Marvel akan berada di pawagam seluruh Malaysia pada hari Khamis ini 7 Mac, 2019.
