Kevin Smith to Direct a reboot of Bedknobs and Broomsticks

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

To all Kevin Smith fans, this is a formal petition to have Kevin Smith direct or produced a reboot of Bedknobs and Broomsticks. A film produced by Disney Studios back in the year 1971, the film takes place during the Battle of Britain, Miss Eglantine Price (Angela Lansbury), a cunning witch-in-training, decides to use her supernatural powers to defeat the Nazi menace. She sets out to accomplish this task with the aid of three inventive children who have been evacuated from the London Blitz. Joined by Emelius Brown (David Tomlinson), the head of Miss Price's witchcraft training correspondence school, the crew uses an enchanted bed to travel into a fantasy land and foil encroaching German troops.

Kevin Smith has spoken on several occasions how this film is near and dear to his heart and how much he would love to direct a remake of this classic film. With his background working on the CW’s The Flash and Supergirl along with his many years of experience as a Director, Producer, and Writer on both TV and Film Kevin Smith is the ideal choice to lead this film. Kevin Smith’s zany and imaginative vision is exactly what a remake of Bedknobs and Broomsticks needs!! Not only will Kevin Smith bring new life to this classic film but he will also keep that same charm, magic and childlike wonderment that Disney is known for because Smith himself always puts that same enthusiasm into everything he is involved with whether it be his many podcast (Fatman on Batman, smodcast, Hollywood Babble-On), his films (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma) or his original TV programs (Comic Book Men, Spoilers, Geeking Out).  

Kevin Smith has brought so much joy to his fans and everyone he works with. I think it’s time we give back by helping one of his dreams come true.

Thank you- Alex Procaccio
