'Book Of Enchantment' Disney+ Series is No Longer Happening

The previously announced Disney+ series Book of Enchantment will not be going forward.

The cancellation of the project, which was set to focus on iconic Disney villains, was announced on Thursday (August 22) ahead of the D23 convention, Deadline reports.

The series was going to be based on the “Villains” book series by Serena Valentino, telling the origin stories of villains like Ursula from The Little Mermaid, The Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, and the Wicked Queen from Snow White.

Michael Seitzman was set to write and produce.

The decision to cancel was “largely creative, related to show’s tone and direction,” according to the outlet.

Get the scoop on some Disney+ projects still going forward: Lady and the Tramp, Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against The Universe, and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series!

Shawn Mendes Gives Another Apology for His Racially Insensitive Tweets

Shawn Mendes Gives Another Apology for His Racially Insensitive Tweets

Shawn Mendes is making sure that fans know just how sorry he is for the racially insensitive tweets that were posted to his social media accounts before he became a megastar.

The 21-year-old singer previously apologized for the comments after a fan brought up the old tweets during a Q&A event at a tour stop. He explained to fans that before he was famous, his friends would take his phone and post things that he didn’t approve.

Shawn took to his Instagram Stories on late Friday night (August 23) to share a statement he wrote.

“I posted some racially insensitive comments on social media when I was younger, and I am so sorry. I apologize wholeheartedly for what was said & understand how offensive those posts were. There is no place for comments like that, and those words do not represent who I am. I stand for complete inclusivity, equality, & love,” Shawn said.

Shawn is currently in New York while performing on his world tour and he’ll be at the VMAs on Monday.
