About this Speaker

Best known for their work on Disney Animation’s MOANA and the 2018 feature ADRIFT, identical twin brothers Aaron & Jordan Kandell are prolific screenwriters and producers rare in their talents as world builders of four quadrant family films and of prestige dramas inspired by true stories.


The Kandell Brothers, who write under their production banner Twin Ink, have several major projects around town. Including SUPERNORMAL: an original superhero comedy for Netflix starring Josh Gad, Luke Evans and Daisy Ridley; SIDEKICKS: a reimagining of classic fairy tales through the eyes of the heroes’ underappreciated helpers, for Paramount; THE MUPPET MAN, a biopic on Jim Henson for Disney; and STRANDED: an incredible true dog tale in the vein of Castaway and the Black Stallion.


On the TV side the twins created SWIFT HARDING: an original family adventure series in the vein of Romancing the Stone meets the Parent Trap, with Chris Columbus attached; CAPITOL: a limited series centered on the Congressional Page Cocaine Scandal of early 80s, with Peter Farrelly to direct; and an Untitled Project about the rise, fall, and future of one of America’s greatest dynasties.
