EXCLUSIVE: Walt Disney Pictures has acquired Labyrinth, a pitch by Larry Brenner for an action/adventure story about the journey of the mythical princess who must enter the complex and dangerous Labyrinth to save her father.
All is revealed - it looks like Disney have started to reveal their true reasons for acquiring Lucas Film (which will have given them a partial stake in Labyrinth).
Just for the sake of clarification - the Disney Labyrinth is - in theory - completely independent of the Jim Henson Labyrinth. The two films just happen to share the same title and have a plot where a young girl rescues a family member by traversing a dangerous maze. Make of that what you will.
The lengths Disney goes to knows no bounds. (Though I hardly think Labyrinth comes close to the Star Wars franchise in terms of potential future revenue for Disney when they acquired (then closed down half of it) Lucas Film
