Disney Studios is reportedly working on a movie about the creation of Disneyland.

The film studio is said to be developing a movie about its founder Walt Disney's journey to build his iconic California theme park, which is set to premiere on the company's own streaming platform Disney+.

As reported by Deadline, the film — which is yet to be titled — will be directed by Halloween Kills filmmaker David Gordon Green.

The script is set to be penned by Beauty and the Beast and Snow White and the Huntsman writer Evan Spiliotopoulos.

Disneyland — which has been dubbed the Happiest Place On Earth — first opened in 1955, and it's the only park constructed entirely under Walt's direct supervision, although others followed in Florida, Paris and around the world.

Some of the park's beloved attractions have since been adapted for the big screen, including Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise.

This upcoming movie will mark only the second time Walt Disney himself has been played on screen, after Tom Hanks took on the role in 2013 drama Saving Mr. Banks, on available on DIsney+.  There is also no shortage of Disneyland-related documentaries, like The Imagineering Story, and the Dwayne Johnson-produced Behind the Attraction
