Iron Man helmer heads to the Magic Kingdom

Jon Favreau will direct family film The Magic Kingdom, reports Variety.

The film is based on a ride at the Disneyland theme park, which has also launched the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald Moore had been working on a script for a Magic Kingdom film but Disney shelved the idea and is starting afresh.

Jon Favreau has previously helmed the family film Elf.
