Jon Favreau to Direct Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Not content merely to mine each of its theme-park attractions for its own movie, Disney has now set director Jon Favreau to make one big movie that makes use of everything Disneyland has to offer. The Iron Man helmer has come onboard the studio's Magic Kingdom, a fantasy film that imagines what would happen if all the theme park's attractions secretly came to life. (Are they saying Donald Duck has been dead this whole time?) It's either Night at the Museum at Disneyland or The Avengers for silent, six-foot-tall animals who seek revenge on the bratty kids who've kicked them in the knees. Either way, can't wait until they turn it into a ride! Oh, wait. [Deadline]
