Get ready to add another new show to your Disney+ watch list.
Disney+ is already home to some popular shows, including Loki, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. We’ve also already heard about some NEW things coming to Disney+ in the future, but now ANOTHER new series is on its way.
According to Deadline, a young adult fantasy novel from bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz is being adapted into a Disney+ series. The book is called The Ring & The Crown — click here to buy it on Amazon!
The series is coming to Disney+ thanks to an adaptation by 20th Television, The Gotham Group, and 3 Arts Entertainment, as well as Disney Branded Television.
The series will be set in an Arthurian world where magic is real. The story focuses on Princess Marie-Victoria. She’s the heir to the “mightiest empire in the world,” and is being forced into a marriage for political reasons. And Princess Marie-Victoria’s friend, Aelwyn Myrddyn (the “bastard daughter of Merlin”), is facing a tough fate too as she’s being forced into service of the crown.
Meanwhile, noble families around the globe are getting ready to “flaunt their wealth” at elaborate parties thanks to the Annual London Season that is just beginning.
So what do Marie-Victoria, Aelwyn, and others start to do? Well, they start making moves to “secure political power, true love, and their futures.”
Fans of Disney’s Descendants series may recognize the name of the writer of the book — Melissa de la Cruz — because she was actually the author of the bestselling Isle of the Lost novel. That was a book that served as the prequel for the Descendants movie.
According to de la Cruz, “The Ring and The Crown is one of my finest novels, it was inspired by my favorite book of all time, Tolstoy’s War and Peace as well as my favorite mythology of all time, the Arthurian legends. I cannot wait to see it brought to life by such a stellar team, studio and streaming service.”
The Ring and the Crown is actually published by Disney Publishing Worldwide. You can pick up a Kindle edition on Amazon for $7.99 or grab a hardcover for $9.99 so you can read the story before the series hits Disney+!
