Wilmer Valderrama all set to star in Zorro TV series for Disney!

Well, all the fans received the amazing news recently and i.e. that Wilmer Valderrama will be a part of Zorro now. Yes, the Cherished actor is all set to play one of the most famous masked vigilantes of all time which surely has a huge fan following.

As per the reports the actor is going to play Zorro. Well, we know that the titular character is from Johnston McCulley’s 1919 novel The Curse Of Capistrano Zorro. Talking about the entire series it will be available on Disney+. Valderrama will not only now be seen playing the lead role, but will also serve as executive producer. As per the reports given by Deadline, the President of Disney Branded Television, Ayo Davis finally puts a full stop to the silence stating that the series will be a reimagining of the ’50s Disney TV show. 

Also previously, Davis stated that the series will be “a compelling period piece, set in Pueblo de Los Angeles, but told in a very modern telenovela style—with richly drawn contemporary characters and relationships set against the action, drama, suspense, and humor of the original, iconic Zorro.” This indeed got many fans much more interested and will be one of the most awaited versions of Zorro for which fans have been waiting our whole lives for. On the other hand, Valderrama is also all excited to play a character that many of the fans associate with Antonio Banderas. He starred in the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro. 

Also, he was seen in its sequel The Legend of Zorro. “Growing up, Zorro was the one character that made me, as a Latino, feel like I could be a hero,” Valderrama stated. “As an adult and a storyteller, I have a responsibility for the stories that I help bring to life. To partner with Gary and Disney to bring Zorro back into the family after 60 years and be a part of the legacy for other children to know they too can be the heroes of their own stories is a dream come true.` Back in 1998, when Banderas played Zorro, he was the first Hispanic actor to play the role in a Hollywood production, and surely it was a huge hit. Also as per the reports, the revival of Zorro’s story won’t end with this Disney+ series as the Mexican filmmaker Jonás Cuarón has been working on his version. Talking about the film, it will star Gael García Bernal as Zorro in a post-apocalyptic world. Not much information and updates on it has been provided yet.
