Disney’s 20th Television is currently creating a new series for Disney+ based on the popular “The Spiderwick Chronicles” book by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black, and is a modern coming-of-age story combined with a fantasy-adventure as the Grace Family – twin brothers Jared and Simon, their sister Mallory and mother Helen – move into their dilapidated ancestral home and begin to unravel a dark mystery about their great-great uncle, who once discovered the secret and maybe foreboding faerie world existing parallel to their own.
The new series is going to star Christian Slater, Lyon Daniels, Joy Bryant, Mychala Lee, Noah Cottrell, Momona Tamada & Alyvia Alyn Lind.
Variety has reported that Jack Dylan Grazer has joined the cast and will be providing the voice of Thimbletack, a boggart who lives in the walls of the Spiderwick Estate. The character is further described as “hundreds of years old, Thimbletack is still a teenager amongst his kind, a mischief-maker with an explosive temper. He could be a great help to the Grace children…if only he could learn to control his own larger than life emotions.”
Jack Dylan Grazer has previously starred in “Shazam”. “It” and also provided for the voice of Alberto in Pixar’s “Luca”.
Filming on “The Spiderwick Chronicles” series is currently underway in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is being created by Paramount Television Studios and 20th Television. It has been written by Aron Eli Coleite. Aron Eli Coleite is the showrunner and will be an executive producer along with Holly Black, Tony DiTerlizzi, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jeremy Bell, D.J. Goldberg, and Julie Kane-Ritsch. “She-Hulk” director, Kat Coiro, is going to be directing two of the episodes of the series.
