Malaysia-born, Los Angeles-based screenwriter Adele Lim has been recruited by Disney to develop an untitled fantasy-adventure animated film.
According to Deadline.com, “the movie has an Asian element running through it and a female protagonist.”
Others attached to the Disney project include producer Osnat Shurer (Moana). Story artists Paul Briggs (Frozen) and Dean Wellins (Zootopia) are set to make their directorial debut.
Lim is an established TV writer who’s worked on shows such as One Tree Hill, Private Practice and Reign. Most recently, Lim co-wrote the screenplay for this year’s summer blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians.
