Is Disney’s Peter Pan Prequel Headed for Broadway?

Back in January of 2009, we became aware that Disney Theatrical was working on a staged version of Peter and the Starcatchers by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry.

More recently, however, Variety reported that there may be talks between Disney and the New York Theater Workshop to produce an Off-Broadway edition of the play in the Workshop’s 2011 season.

But now, although not as numerous as the Dumbo and Newsies projects that Disney Theatrical has confessed to, domain names have been registered for the Peter and the Starcatchers play and some of them have their sights aimed pretty high including a touring production.

The Kingdom Keepers Return to Guide Guests Through the Disney Parks by Day – and Protect the Parks from Disney Villains at Night

Kingdom Keepers III: Disney in Shadows by Ridley PearsonFive teenagers – the Kingdom Keepers – have been transformed into Disney Holographic Images (DHIs) that thrill guests as they guide them through each of the Disney parks. In truth, the Disney Imagineers created the DHIs to protect Disney’s theme parks from the Overtakers, classic Disney villains, who are trying to seize the parks and use them for their own evil agendas. Ridley Pearson’s Kingdom Keepers book series follows these heroes on behind-the-scenes adventures in the magical world of the Disney parks – and in Kingdom Keepers III: Disney in Shadow, the action happens in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot. (Disney-Hyperion Books, ages 10 and up, $17.99)

First Pages of ‘Kingdom Keepers 3′ by Ridley Pearson Available Online

On his official blog, Ridley Pearson, popular author of young adult novels, has made the first several pages of his upcoming title Kingdom Keepers 3: Disney in Shadow (April 6, 2010; Disney Hyperion) available for download (Adobe Acrobat Reader required). The newest book in the series has our heroes back in the theme parks of Walt Disney World with a new challenge, obstacles and enemies to overcome.

As Ridley has promised us, Stitch has a prominent role in the book, appearing first on page one, but his badness level appears to be questionable at best. Only time (and the rest of the book) will tell if Stitch counts Maleficent and the Overtakes or Finn and the rest of the DHIs amongst his ‘ohana.
