FLORA & ULYSSES is not only fun for the family but comic book nerds will get a kick out out of the numerous references and easter eggs. Director Lena Khan and Ben Schwartz explains what to expect in the Disney+ movie.
Matilda Lawler, Alyson Hannigan and Ben Schwartz star in FLORA & ULYSSES streaming on Disney+ February 19. The comedy adventure is based on Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Award-winning book, "Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures." Lawler stars as 10-year old Flora, an avid comic book fan who rescues a squirrel she names Ulysses who gains superhero powers after a mishap. Given her parents recent separation, this new adventure comes at a good time.
Director Lena Khan and Ben Schwartz discussed the fun little nugget dropped throughout the movie referencing classic Disney movies and comic books at the recent press conference with the stars and filmmakers.
