It’s now being reported that a Disney+ series is being developed based on the 90’s classic baseball kids movie The Sandlot according to Variety. The film’s original co-writer and director David Mickey Evans will return to write and produce the untitled series.
Disney+ is developing on a TV series based on “The Sandlot,” Variety has learned. David Mickey Evans, the co-writer and director of the 1993 film, is attached to write and executive produce the series. It is said to take in 1984 and would focus on the children of the original characters.
Evans had mentioned the series recently on the Rain Delay podcast.
It’ll be interesting the direction they’ll be going considering The Sandlot is a beloved movie to a generation of kids that are now parents themselves. The streaming service will likely continue to develop beloved films into shows over the next couple of years and starting with The Sandlot was a good choice in my opinion.
When Scottie Smalls (Thomas Guiry) moves to a new neighborhood, he manages to make friends with a group of kids who play baseball at the sandlot. Together they go on a series of funny and touching adventures. The boys run into trouble when Smalls borrows a ball signed by baseball legend Babe Ruth from his stepdad that gets hit over a fence.
