Disney+ is currently working on a new music/dance-focused film titled “Spin”.  The movie will be directed by Manjari Makijany, who has previously directed “Desert Dolphin”. Other blockbuster projects include: “The Dark Knight”, “Dunkirk”, “Wonder Woman” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”.

The film will follow a teenager who, following the death of her mother, finds her life revolving around helping at her family’s restaurant, but when she falls for an aspiring DJ, he re-awakens her passion for music, and she begins to realize that may be where her priorities lie.

Carley Steiner, Céline Geiger and Josh A. Cagan will write the screenplay for the film. Zanne Devine will executive produce the film, who recently executive produced another upcoming Disney+ original film “Secret Society of Second Born Royals”.

A production date has not been announced yet.

Writer/Blogger and keeper of the keys at The I also co-host the DisWorld Podcast with Justin Eddy. My happy place is any Disney park but mostly Disneyland. I love to write, read, plan trips, spend time with family and friends, nature, live music, wine and the occasional Dole Whip. I also love my Border Collie who is obsessed with watching football and Conan O'Brien.
