Crazy Rich Asians Writer And Moana Producer To Make Disney Animated Film

Get ready, animation fans, because we have some exciting news. If you’ve been living under a rock, a little film called Crazy Rich Asians hit theaters and was well-received by both fans and critics, taking in more than its fair share of the box office since its release, exceeding all expectations. Now, the screenwriter for the film, Adele Lim, has signed on to her next big project. And it is big.

Deadline is reporting that Lim is currently developing a new Disney animated film, with Moana producer Osnat Shurer leading the way. We don’t know the actual plot details for it, but there will reportedly be an Asian element to it, and like many Disney films before it, it will have a female protagonist (no surprise there). While this can’t be confirmed, word has it that, despite having the same producer as Moana, it will not be a musical. With that in mind, I’d expect something more along the lines of Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, or Big Hero 6.

Helming the project will be first-time directors Paul Briggs and Dean Wellins. Briggs was a storyboard artist on the massively successful Frozen and head of story on Big Hero 6. Wellins was also a storyboard artist, but instead on the also-successful Zootopia, Big Hero 6, and Tangled.

This new project is currently going through casting for its main lead.

Though while this is certainly promising news to hear, given we’re talking about animation, I pretty much expect this one to go radio silent once we get the casting news out of the way. In another three years or so, we’ll likely hear much more from it, once it’s closer to actually getting a release.
