“Nautilus” Captain Nemo Origin Story Coming to Disney+

We are BEYOND excited to share the news that Disney+ will be bringing another classic to the future. “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” is one of our favorite live-action house of mouse films, and apparently the ol Nautilus is still sea-worthy.

According to an announcement today, Disney+ has unveiled plans for a 10-part live action series, which will tell the backstory of Captain Nemo himself!

James Dormer (Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands) is writing and executive producing. Director of Scripted Original Content for EMEA at Disney+ Johanna Devereaux will also executive produce.Xavier Marchand of Moonriver TV and Anand Tucker of Seven Stories have developed and co-produced the project.

“Jules Verne’s story is a beloved classic all around the world,” said Devereaux. “It’s a huge privilege to bring the Nautilus and her crew to life again in such a bold, exciting way, with a diverse team of creative talent and on-screen characters. The series will be breathtaking, action-packed and a huge amount of fun.”

Filming is set to start in early 2022. No casting has been announced yet, but we’ll let you know what we hear.
