Ridley Pearson Rewriting Entire “Kingdom Keepers” Book Series to Reflect Current Disney Parks Attractions and Offerings

In 2005, Ridley Pearson’s “The Kingdom Keepers” book series took Disney fans by storm. The New York Times best-selling series, published by Disney Editions and Disney Hyperion, followed the adventures of five teens who battle Disney villains to keep them from taking control of the parks, the Disney entertainment empire, and the world. Unfortunately, the pangs of time have managed to get the best of the beloved series, rendering many references to rides and attractions outdated. The newly-updated books will be released in the coming months.

Now, according to a Twitter post by the author himself, the charming children’s novel (equally adored by many adult park enthusiasts) will make a resurgence with an updated revamp of the complete series, upon request by Disney Books. However, this will delay the release of the highly-anticipated, “Kingdom Keepers: Inheritance”, now set for March 2021. The author has been fairly active on social media lately, as he also recently revealed that he was working on an abandoned Kingdom Keepers series for Disney+.

I guess I’m a bit confused. What exactly will be changed? Just the keepers going to different rides?

That’s what it sounds like… so the whole section done in the Wonders of Life building would be replaced. Not sure this needs to be done, it’s kind if like erasing history.

I completely agree. What he wrote was relevant at the time, so it seems odd to just rewrite it all just because the parks may not look that way currently. I personally love the nods to experiences I got to enjoy as a kid that are no longer there. I’ll still read at least the first one to see what’s new. But I don’t think it’s a necessary change.
