HOLLYWOOD – Francis Ford Coppola is developing Godfather Babies with Disney+.
Film maker Francis Ford Coppola has announced he is developing Godfather Babies with streaming site, Disney+. Animation and voice recording is due to get underway in the fall.
Coppola’s production company, American Zoetrope released a joint statement with Disney+ earlier today:
‘We are excited to announce a new chapter in the Corleone family franchise. In partnership with Disney+, we are proud to announce ‘The Godfather Babies’. It will have all of your Corleone family favourites. Mikey, will of course be the leader of the group. Sonny will be the feisty Scrappy-Doo of the family. Little Tommy is the brains of the group, he can wear glasses, or something. Connie will be the bossy sister and of course, there’s Fredo. He will be the sneaky one, running off to the villain, Mo Green, to tattle on Mikey. Mo secretly wants to take over the creche from Mikey. He will be the baddy each week.’
The statement continues: ‘They’ll get into all sorts of scrapes and adventures, trying to stop Mo and his evil plans. Kay will be a recurring character. She always wants to know what game Mikey and the gang are playing, because he never lets her join in. There will also be Clemenzy, the funny chubby baby, Tessy, the sad baby and of course Luca, who will be violently killed at the end of every episode. It’s going to be a lot of fun.’
When asked if there are any plans to introduce Mikey’s daughter, Mary Corleone from The Godfather Part 3, we were simply told, ‘If you ask that question again, you’ll be snoozing with the fishies’.
