Goosebumps Author R.L. Stine Is Bringing a New Show To Disney+
Here at MickeyBlog, we’ve got some exciting news for fans of Author R.L. Stine who most of you know as the writer of the Goosebumps books. Disney+ made the announcement earlier today that they have ordered an 8-episode series titled Just Beyond based on his books.
Check out the official Facebook notification here:
Seth Grahame-Smith will be producing the show for 20th Century Fox Television and it is expected to be a horror/comedy anthology based on Stine’s best-selling BOOM Studios graphic novel series.
As D23 pointed out in a recent article, Grahame-Smith is perfectly for the project with experience of striking a balance between horror and comedy as the author of novels including Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In addition, Grahame-Smith was also a screenwriter for films like Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, The Lego Batman Movie and The Saint.
“I grew up watching Twilight Zone reruns and the original Amazing Stories with my parents,” says Grahame-Smith. “I’ve always wanted to make a genre anthology series that families could enjoy together, and do it in a way that delivered for kids and adults alike. R.L. Stine has been a part of millions of childhoods, and Disney+ has already proven itself as a place that knows how to make high-quality shows for the whole family. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with both of them.”
R.L. Stine had this to say about the new series, “Back in the day, we had a Goosebumps HorrorLand attraction at Walt Disney World.” He adds, “It was one of the thrills of my life. Now I’m thrilled to be back with Disney for the TV series based on my graphic novels. Writing Just Beyond for BOOM! Studios has been a joy from the beginning, and I’m so happy to have the wonderful screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith bring the series to life on Disney+. How lucky can I be?”
As of going to print, it is early days for the project. However, Just Beyond is expected to make its debut on Disney+ in the Fall of 2021. Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg will be producing the series through their KatzSmith Productions banner.\
