All together now..

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones,
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones,
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones,
Now shake dem skeleton bones!

Oh the bay leaves are stirred with the cardamom,
the cardamom is fried with the tumeric,
the tumeric is spiced with the coriander
Now shake the karahi to taste.

Dem bones etc..
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

It's the merchandising that bothers me. Maybe we really will get a My Little Binky playset. :shock:

Or McDonalds doing a Curry Mac as a Happy Meal. :o

Do you not think its more possible now with Tim Burton on board with Disney? Its a vey Burton-esque adaptation.

P.S. i'm at work so can't read a lot of the links so apologies if I am way way off track with this

Disney is Pixar and Pixar is Disney however much they might not have liked that at first. With the Brothers Grimm and their nephew gone now, the full-on Disney treacle ethic's over and Eisner doesn't much care what his director/producers do so long as the $$ keep coming, so why complain with such a large reputation and mostly pockets to match behind you...? Tolkien sold both TH and LotR to them (tax bill! :lol: ) and they chose to pass up and sell on in the end, so they're not the power-trippers they were and know when something's beyond them. :roll:

Burton never gets that far from Disney although he's talented, stylish and successful enough to dictate what he does and how he does it - the original article mentions the Black Cauldron - look at the credits :twisted: That was his first major animation project... :wink:

Didn't know that about Burton.

Always liked the Black Cauldron.

All we can really do is wait and hope.

Might even let david jason do one of the voices :lol:

If Disney get their hands on it, quite frankly I can't imagine that the finished product will bear any relation to the book.

The Black Cauldron was pretty faithful to the Book of three if I remember correctly. Didn't really have anything to do with the Black Cauldron, but by that logic they could call it Mort and base it off a different book like Reaper Man 8)

It's being done by John Musker, and Ron Clements the guys that did:
The Great Mouse Detective, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, and Treasure Planet. All of these films were loose adaptions of something.
By the way Blue sky Disney posted an update to the story @

The plot of the book is discussed though so there might be spoilers for those who have not read Mort.

Or summarise the whole book maybe :lol:

It is funny watching people who haven't read the books speculating on the story.

Death as a villain. :lol:
