The thought of Kevin Smith taking on a reboot of this classic film definitely has some very interesting prospects. Smith has long since proven himself very creative and imaginative – exactly what a film like this would need. What’s more, though Disney combined both Norton books to make one film, today those two books could be used individually, to set up a franchise.
At present, it’s important to remember that this is only an idea voiced by Kevin Smith, on his podcast. As such, it is very far from actually being put into motion. But should Disney become intrigued by the prospect, only a handful of directors come to mind that could do such a project justice. For many fans, Kevin Smith is the obvious choice to give this Disney classic the zany, tripped-out new life that it needs.
