The Shadow King to be resurrected

February 6th, 2013 by bash Comments

Henry Selick, director of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, is resurrecting The Shadow King – a project dropped last Summer by Disney.

According to Variety, producer Josh Penn is on-board and already some footage from the film is likely to be shown in a few days at the European Film Market (February 7-15) .

A synopsis for The Shadow King reads: “The Shadow King centers on a nine-year-old New York orphan who hides his strange hands with long fingers from a cruel world. When’s he’s taught how to make amazing hand shadows that come to life, his hands become weapons in a shadow war against a monster bent on killing his brother and ultimately destroying New York.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
