Disney+ Reportedly Eyeing Angelina Jolie and Will Smith For Kingdom Hearts Series
How’s this for a casting wishlist? According to a recent post on We Got This Covered, Disney is reportedly eyeing Angelina Jolie and Will Smith for starring roles in a Kingdom Hearts show that is currently in development for Disney+.
According to reports, there are two Kingdom Hearts series, based on the popular Disney video games, currently in the pipeline. The first is a live-action show and the other is animated. For the live-action version, the studio wants to go big and is looking for Angelina Jolie and Will Smith for appearances in the project. We’ve Got This Covered is also saying that these roles could carry over into the animated version as well.
As if that weren’t exciting enough, the casting rumor may actually mean that Jolie and Smith will be reprising their roles of Maleficent and the Genie in Aladdin. As We’ve Got This Covered says it would be a HUGE coup for Disney+ to lock in a couple of films biggest names to make appearances in the show.
If you’ve ever played the Kingdom Hearts video games then you know that the series pulls from many of Disney’s most successful franchises including Toy Story, The Lion King and Monsters Inc.
