Earlier this year, Variety reported that Disney was working on new family drama movie based on Kate DiCamillo’s novel “Flora and Ulysses” for the new Disney Streaming Service, Disney+.
The novel’s description gives us an idea of what the movie will be about:
It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry—and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart.
No further details about the upcoming “Flora and Ulysses” movie has yet been announced, but expect more information to be released soon.
