After getting Marc Webb to direct the early part of the series adaptation anthology of works of RL Stine , Just Beyond , now Disney began to build the ranks of the characters to recruit Mckenna Grace (Annabelle Comes Home), Lexi Underwood (Little Fires Everywhere) and Nasim Pedrad (Chad).
Just Beyond is an eight-episode anthology series from Disney + that tells amazing stories and triggers thoughts about realities beyond what we know. Each episode introduces viewers to a new cast of characters who must go on a memorable journey through a supernatural world involving witches, aliens, ghosts and parallel universes.
Grace and Underwood will be the main characters of each of their own episodes, which will be directed by Webb. Grace herself is no stranger to the supernatural horror genre because she previously starred in The Haunting of Hill House and Annabelle Comes Home and was involved in Ghostbusters: Afterlife which will hit theaters in November.
First published in 2019, Stine’s novel series revolves around high school children discovering various terrors in their environment. The story of the first book tells of a group of children who discover facts about scary creatures and a gateway to a terrifying dimension that lurks in their school while the second book deals with two Martians who land on Earth and plow two children’s bodies and the third focuses on two brothers siblings who join their uncle on a scientific expedition to a desert island.
