Disney, who have optioned the movie rights for Ursula Vernon’s book, Castle Hangnail are working with producers Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman at A Very Good Producion on an adaptation. A Hugo-awarding winner writer, Vernon also created the Dragonbreath Series and the webcomic Digger.
Who doesn’t love a good story about a young witch? Castle Hangnail follows 12-year-old Molly, who becomes the mistress of Castle Hangnail, and old decrepit building in danger of being decommissioned by the Board of Magic. A decommission would cause the castle to lose its magic and the minions (a hypochondriac fish, a minotaur, etc.) to lose their home. Molly goes through a series of tasks and defend the castle, all while hiding a dangerous secret.
I’m looking forward to this, how about you?
