'The Sandlot' TV Series Coming to Disney+
The Sandlot is the latest Disney-owned property to get the reboot treatment for the media behemoth's upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming platform.
Original screenwriter David Mickey Evans is behind the reboot, which will focus on the children of the original characters featured in the 1993 film of the same name. (It's unclear if The Beast's offspring will also be included.) Sources say all of the original cast is returning for the Disney+ revival.
News of The Sandlot's Disney+ revival arrives as Disney acquired Fox's TV and film library and with it the rights to the original movie. The Sandlot also joins a new take on Love, Simon and Disney fare like Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar projects on Disney+'s platform, which is expected to launch in the fourth quarter.
