    Kingdom Keepers movie? Why not?

    Hey all,
    It has been said that Kingdom Keepers has been sent into Disney (I believe twice) to be turned into a movie. Disney has rejected it at least once and we have heard nothing of the second time. My question is why do you think that Disney is rejecting this? Is it because it would to closely resemble the main idea of Night at the Museum? Do they think it wouldn't do well? Do they think they will have to change it too much from the book in order for it to work on the BIG screen?
    Do you think it should be turned into a movie?


    P.S. Please correct any of the facts I have wrong. Thanks!

    Regardless of what park it takes place in, I think it's a fun idea and would translate well to the big screen.

    I think the movie would be awesome!! and most of the in-park scenes take place at night so the filming wouldnt be too difficult in working with the normal flow of the park.

    Granted, I don't know what the Hyperion Publishing involvement has to do with it, but I think part of the issue may be buying the rights for something that may not come off too well.

    I mean, would this be live action, animated, CGI, mixed or what?

    NOOOO!!!! I hated the book. Worst ending ever! If any of their Tween book properties should be a movie it's Peter and the Starcatchers!

    i would think it could make a good movie, however, i don't know if the backstage scenes would do well in a movie. alot of the stuff backstage in the book give away certain tricks and magic.

    i agree with this, and i think that this is one of the things that would keep disney from doing the movie. i guess they could change the story a little so that they could get around the backstage stuff.
