As part of its first Disney Plus Day, Disney revealed that they are developing a series based on the popular children’s books known as The Spiderwick Chronicles. The series of 5 books, written by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black, were published from 2003-2004.
The books tell the tales of the Grace children as they discover a world of fairies and magic after moving to a new home. Freddie Highmore led the cast of a 2008 film adaptation which will be unrelated to this series. Disney had little to offer on the series other than calling it a “modern coming of age story combined with fantasy adventure.”
