So, should Disney be unleashing its army of lawyers? Well, as it turns out No Ordinary Family is produced by the Disney-owned ABC. How about Marvel Comics? Oh yeah, Disney owns them now, too. So even if supporting star Romany Malco ends up with Frozone-like powers, or Linda Hunt shows up looking like Edith Head, or the family does the obligatory sitcom thing of having a new addition, and the baby is named Jack-Jack, there will still likely be no legal ramification. Anyway, this isn't the first time a popular movie unofficially spun-off a (likely unpopular) sitcom. Anyone remember ABC's Baby Talk, which ripped off Look Who's Talking? Of course, like Dukes of Hazzard (inspired by The Moonshiners) and What's Happening!! (influenced by Cooley High) before it, Baby Talk was co-created by the same person who wrote the loosely related predecessor. As far as I know, Brad Bird has had no involvement with NOF.
Check out the trailer for No Ordinary Family, which debuts this fall, after the jump.
