Yesterday, to my great excitement, I learned that Disney was planning to create a Gargoyles movie. Now for those that don’t know, Gargoyles was an amazing animated series that took place during the 90s, which featured these mythical creatures that would turn to stone during the day, but would fight crime and evil at night. Gargoyles was a series that I think pretty much surprised everyone, as the show was much more mature in nature than the other Disney animated series of the past. But alas it ended.
Yesterday news emerged that Disney was planning to develop a Gargoyles live action film. Personally I’m not a fan of live action films of animated series, but I was prepared to make an exception because it was Gargoyles. Well at least that is what I thought. There appears to be some confusion as to whether or not this Gargoyles film is in fact tied to the animated series or not.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, which seems to be the source of these stories, there is no mention of the animated series. And if you take time to read the post, it appears as if there is no link between this project and the animated series or the link is very uncertain. Hopefully in the coming weeks, Disney will move to clear up this confusion.
So until then, I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that this film will indeed by my favourite Gargoyles.
