Disney Developing Animation Pic: ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Writer Adele Lim & ‘Moana’ Producer Osnat Shurer to Adapt


Deadline reported, Disney is currently developing untitled fantasy-adventure film with the screenwriter of Crazy Rich Asians Adele Lim and Moana producer Osnat Shurer.

You can read the full details below:

Disney story artists Paul Briggs (Frozen) and Dean Wellins (Zootopia) are attached to make their directorial debuts on the project, which is being set up at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Plot is being kept under wraps, but I understand the movie has an Asian element running through it and a female protagonist. It is a theatrical feature rather than one for Disney’s upcoming streaming service, and the team is going through the casting process for the lead.
