Jenkins previously commented on the project: “Helping my sister raise two boys in the 90s, I grew up with these characters,” Jenkins said in a statement. “Having the opportunity to work with Disney to develop this wonderful story of friendship, love and legacy as I continue my work chronicling the lives and souls of people in the African Diaspora is a dream come true. “

The script is ready and it was written by Jeff Nathanson, who was also responsible for the script of the original.
