One of the animated sequences in the 1940 Disney film "Fantasia" is becoming a live-action movie, according to reports. "Night on Bald Mountain" is being conceptualized into a full live-action movie, much like what Disney did with "Maleficent."
Disney has already identified writers who will develop the script for the movie. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless will expand the sequence into a full screenplay. They will also be the film's executive producers. Sazama and Sharpless, according The Hollywood Reporter, are a good fit for the dark fantasy because of their previous experience in films of the same genre.
The sequence shows a dark winged creature who raises spirits from the dead. Once released, these spirits are seen flying through the air and wreak havoc through the night. These spirits go away when the sun rises. This sequence is one of the eight sequences that made up the classic Disney film "Fantasia" which was well known not just for its animation, but also for its use of classical music. The music for the sequence was composed by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky in 1867 and arranged by Leopold Stokowski for the film. more >>
