Dal sito The Hollywood Reporter:

Disney Nabs Movie Rights to 'The Paper Magician' Trilogy (Exclusive)

The books were written by Charlie N. Holmberg, who used to write 'Star Trek' fan fiction.

Disney has picked up the film rights to The Paper Magician, a book trilogy from Charlie N. Holmberg.

Allison Shearmur, who was an executive producer on the Hunger Games movies and a producer on Disney's well-regarded live-action version of Cinderella as well the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is on board to produce the adaptation.

On first blush, the story bears a resemblance to the Harry Potter series as it tells of a young conjurer attending a school for magicians set in a whimsical world. But the similarities end there.

The YA series centers on Ceony Twill, a young girl who is a student at the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined. In this world where magicians animate manmade materials, she is disappointed that she has been demoted to learn paper magic despite her dreams of working with metal. But when an all-powerful evil magician rises and her mentor's life is on the line, she must tap into the hidden potential of her new powers.

The Paper Magician, the first book in the series, was published as an e-book by 47North, an imprint of Amazon Publishing, in September 2014. The second, The Glass Magician, was released in November 2014 and the third, The Master Magician, was released last June.

Holmberg was a Trekkie as a teen and began writing Star Trek fan fiction before majoring in English at Utah's Brigham Young University.

He is repped by Eddie Gamarra at Gotham Group and Joel VanderKloot at Nelson Davis Law.

Dal sito Screenrant:

According to Deadline, the list of projects actively being developed as Original Movies for Disney’s streaming service include a Pirates of the Caribbean-esque Don Quixote adaptation penned by Hunger Games screenwriter Bill Ray; a Lady and the Tramp re-telling based on Disney’s classic 1955 animated movie of the same name; Togo, a true story inspired sled dog drama that was formerly titled Togo and Seppala, and is being directed by Ericson Core (who also helmed Disney’s 2006 sports memoir Invincible); Stargirl, a film directed by Julia Hart (who appeared in Disney’s Tuck Everlasting) that may be based on the Jerry Spinelli YA novel of the same name; and The Paper Magician, based on Charlie N. Holmberg’s historical fantasy book series.

Il progetto rientra tra quelli previsti dalla Disney per la nuova piattaforma streaming.

E' l'adattamento del romanzo "The Paper Magician", scritto da Charlie N. Holmberg.

La sceneggiatura del film è affidata a Ashleigh Powell, già sceneggiatrice de Lo Schiaccianoci e i Quattro Regni. La notizia proviene dal sito Screenrant:

Powell has been busy working on another YA fantasy property, The Paper Magician, and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, both for Disney.

Pare che la sceneggiatrice abbia già terminato di scrivere la sceneggiatura e ora è legata ad un altro progetto (intitolato The Hazel Wood) per la Columbia Pictures.

The Paper Magician
è un romanzo young adult , ecco la trama:

Ceony Twill, giovane e talentuosa allieva dell’accademia di magia Tagis Praff, sta finalmente per cominciare l’apprendistato che la legherà per tutta la vita all’elemento magico che ha sempre desiderato. Eppure, contrariamente a quanto sognava, il suo destino non sarà scritto nel metallo ma sulla carta. Tra fogli che si animano dando vita a personaggi incredibili e storie fantastiche che la lasceranno a bocca aperta, toccherà allo stravagante mago Emery Thane convincerla delle qualità straordinarie di un elemento così delicato e allo stesso tempo prodigioso. Così, quando Lira, malvagia praticante di arti magiche proibite, priverà il maestro del suo cuore, Ceony per tenerlo in vita gliene confezionerà uno di carta, per poi volare sulle ali di un enorme aeroplanino all’inseguimento della perfida maga, verso un’avventura che porterà alla luce i ricordi più lontani e i segreti più taciuti, nascosti nell’angolo più remoto dell’anima.
