No, you aren’t dreaming. A major studio is finally making a Discworld movie. After months of speculation as to what they’re next movie will be; directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Princess and the Frog) will be directing a traditionally animated Discworld movie for Disney. This news was originally reported as a rumor on Progress City, and further confirmed via Bleeding Cool and Blue Sky Disney twice. Right now it’s looking as if the movie will be based on Mort (the fourth of the Discworld novels), but things are still very early and the soonest the movie will be ready would be 2013 or 2014.
