It has been a few months since we have received any news on Flora & Ulysses, a film set to debut on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+. Now, we have a small update on the project.
We have learned that production on the family drama is expected to kick off this Summer on June 17th. Filming is expected to take place in Vancouver.
Based on Kate DiCamillo’s novel Flora and Ulysses centers on a cynical girl who spends her time reading comic books and a squirrel who is run over by the neighbor’s vacuum cleaner. The squirrel’s brush with death causes him to develop superpowers. The book won the John Newbery Medal from the Association for Library Service to Children.
Lena Khan (The Tiger Hunter) will direct from a Brad Copeland (Ferdinand) adapted script. Gil Netter (Marley & Me) is producing.
