Disneyworld's 'Magic Kingdom' attractions are set to get their own cinematic universe via the streaming service Disney+, Variety has confirmed.

The upcoming projects will be overseen by noted science-fiction writer Ronald D. Moore, best known for his work on the Star Trek franchise, as well as television series such as For All Mankind, Outlander and the acclaimed Battlestar Galactica reboot.

Maril Davis and Ben McGinnis of Moore’s company, Tall Ship Productions, are also involved in all the upcoming projects.

The first confirmed project will be The Society of Explorers and Adventurers, which Moore will write and executive produce. 

This series will be loosely based on the fiction organization of the same name, which is part of the Disneyworld (also known as Disneyland Florida) theme park lore.

It will be set in a world where all the themed lands and characters of the Disney parks and classic films exist in a shared universe.

Disney has previously experimented with film adaptations of some of their most famous rides, such as 2003's The Haunted Mansion film starring Eddie Murphy and Terrence Stamp.

However, arguably their biggest success from this experiment was the hugely popular Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, with five successful films under its belt and a sixth one on the way.

The Magic Kingdom was first opened on October 1, 1971, as the first of four theme parks at Disneyworld.

News about the Magic Kingdom cinematic universe comes after Disneyworld announced that it is preparing for its 50th anniversary.

Disney+ currently facilitates two different cinematic Universes on its service: Stars Wars and Marvel.

In addition to the Star Wars films, the site hosts the breakout series The Mandalorian, with a number of Star Wars shows confirmed for the future, including The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

As for Marvel, its first exclusive Disney+ series, WandaVision, will soon come to a close, while its second show, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, is set to debut next month.

Other Marvel shows confirmed for the streaming service include Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Loki.

Marvel's MCU films, including those of the heroes Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Spider-Man and Captain America, can also be viewed on Disney+.
