In the franchise-fueled world of modern media, no IP will stay unturned for long.

It has been revealed that Disney commissioned an exclusive series called Nautilus to debut on the Disney+.

It will will act as the prequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The legendary Jules Verne novel is no stranger to being roped into franchise schemes.

Numerous adaptations have tackled the original story, while themes and characters have been lifted for other works, such as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Disney adapted the novel directly in 1954, and it is to this film that Nautilus will act as a prequel to.

Since the company only just announced plans to create the show, practically nothing is known about the production.

The series will be live action, and so far 10 episodes have been ordered.

The show will be more concerned with Nemo's backstory than with any of the other characters in the novel.

So far one script and further outlines exist, with production set to begin in 2022.

Nautilus has no projected release date, but will be exclusive to Disney+.
