Kenny Ortega from “High School Musical” Signs Multi-Year Deal to Work with Netflix

This morning, it was announced that Kenny Ortega is taking a multi-year deal with Netflix! The deal, which has already started on some projects, is part of Netflix’s acquisition of new talent. Netflix has also recently signed Darla K. Anderson who has produced everything from A Bug’s Life to Coco.

“As a fan of Netflix and their dynamic range of high-quality content, I am thrilled to begin a creative relationship with the company,” Ortega said in a statement. “I’m super excited about the projects we already have in development and the shared enthusiasm I feel from the company. l look forward to this new Netflix collaboration with the highest hopes.”

Today, Netflix also announced the current projects with the “High School Musical” director. He will direct and produce a film tentatively entitled “Auntie Claus,” as well as executive produce an original series dubbed “Julie and the Phantoms.” “Auntie Claus” follows a young girl in her quest to find a Christmas-loving aunt who has gone missing. It will be a musical and is based on the popular book series of the same name by Elise Primavera.

We expect to see some truly magical musicals get brought to life while Kenny Ortega works with Netflix.  What do you think? Connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know what you think!
