Goonies reenactment series lands at Disney+
Our Time was first developed at Fox but they passed on the project describing it as "too young" for their audience.
Disney+ has acquired a new TV series inspired by the classic 80s children’s film The Goonies.
Titled Our Time, the show will follow a teacher named Stella Cooper who returns to her hometown after unsuccessfully attempting to build a life in New York City.
She soon finds “inspiration, hope and ultimately salvation” when she agrees to help three students create an ambitious shot-for-shot remake of their favourite film, The Goonies.
“Over the course of the season, their passion will inspire a town in desperate need of hope in this love letter to the power of cinema, storytelling and dreams,” reads the plot synopsis.
A pilot for the series, which was written by The Bold Type creator Sarah Watson, was originally developed for US network Fox.
They ultimately ended up passing on the project because they felt its tone was “too young” for its mainly adult audience.
Disney soon snapped it up, gave it the title Our Time and are now busy re-working the script.
Superbad director Greg Mottola was initially set to helm the series but it’s not clear whether he’s still attached after the move.
Our Time is yet to receive a release date on Disney+.
