Gary Marsh, who’s worked on successful Disney franchises like High School Musical, Lizzie McGuire, Hannah Montana and The Descendants, will act as an executive producer on the project.

“Growing up, Zorro was the one character that made me, as a Latino, feel like I could be a hero. As an adult and a storyteller, I have a responsibility in the stories that I help bring to life,” Wilmer said of his casting. “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.”
