ORDDU: Greetings to all you MiceChat ducklings out there. Today my sisters and I would like to share with you a rumor that's been bubbling and boiling inside the Disney cauldrons--and which is already being discussed on OTHER Disney web-footed sites and we didn't what MiceChat to be left out.
ORWEN: The rumor is that Disney is seriously looking into the idea of remaking our very own movie--which gave us our start--The Black Cauldron!!
ORDDU: Only the working title is called The Chronicles of Prydain. Who knows what actual title they might end up with?
ORGOCH: Well, we would if'n we wanted ta look inta the future by usin' the ol' crystal!
ORWEN: But we wanna' be surprised along with the rest of you!
ORDDU: Many fans have expressed--in the past--that they would love to see a live-action version of the many activities from the Land of Prydain. It finally looks as though these dreams are to be fulfilled. Of course we don't yet know which of the five books in the series they might end up making into a movie. They could do a sequel which would advance the animated version forward.
ORWEN: The new version would be heavy on special effects--
ORGOCH: --an' yer the expert on bein' heavy, that's fer sure!!
ORDDU: The point IS, we're keeping our fingers crossed for a second chance to see a story from the Chronicles of Prydain to become a true success. I only hope that whomever they get to play ME is someone classy--like Julia Roberts.
ORGOCH: I was thinkin' more along the lines of a beat up lookin' Shirley McLain...
ORWEN: Too bad there isn't anybody ugly or mean enough to play YOU, old biddy!
ORDDU: (sigh) Taran, Eilonwy, Gurgi, Flewdder Flam and even the Horned King--along with us--are so excited over the many possibilities....
