 Disney+ is set to produce a 10-episode series with Captain Nemo, from Jules Verne’s classic novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The live-action TV series is currently called The Nautilus after the Captain’s submarine and after the film from 1954. The premise is as follows:

An Indian prince robbed of his birthright and family, a prisoner of the East India Company and a man bent on revenge against the forces which have taken everything from him, Nemo set sail with his ragtag crew on board the awe-inspiring vessel, battling foes and discovering magical underwater worlds.

 James Dormer will write, and executive produce the 10-part series and the series will be executive produced by Dormer and Johanna Devereaux, who has said;

“Jules Verne’s story is a beloved classic all around the world. It’s a huge privilege to bring the Nautilus and her crew to life again in such a bold, exciting way, with a diverse team of creative talent and on-screen characters. The series will be breathtaking, action-packed and a huge amount of fun.”

The project has been stuck in development for a long time, as McG was tapped to direct but left and James Mangold moved on to Indiana Jones 5. It’s developed and co-produced by Moonriver TV and Seven Stories. Principal filming starts in early 2022.
