Lawrence Finnegan Whitman (Finn Whitman) is the
leader of the Kingdom Keepers, Ridley Pearson's books based on five
DHI's (Disney Host Interactive), who crossover when they sleep into
the Disney parks to stop a group of extreme evil "Overtakers." The
Overtakers want to take all the fun and happiness out of the parks
and it is up to Finn, Charlene, Philby, Willa, and Maybeck to keep
that from happening.
Finn Whitman is 15 years old and lives in Orland,
Florida where he attends Winter Park High School. He lives with his
father, mother, and little sister. He can always count on his
friends, the other four Kingdom Keepers, along with Amanda, Jess,
Dillard, Wanda and Wayne. He has had many adventures since he
started his role as a Disney hologram tour guide.
Finn dresses like every other teenager; it varies
on a daily basis, but before bed he dresses in dark clothing and
wears his black painted running shoes so when he crosses over it
will be harder for the Overtakers to see him. Finn has a major crush
on Amanda, which Carlene isn't too happy about.
I know a lot of people are hoping Kingdom Keepers
to be turned into movies or even video games on the major game
consoles. I for one would love to see this turned into both. I think
they would both be a fantastic edition to Disney films and games.
The Kingdom Keepers aren't found in the parks, but
maybe someday that will change. Ridley Pearson and Disney are
teaming up for a youth program which allows classes to follow the
books in the parks. Booking for Kingdom Keepers Quest starts in May
and will begin in Fall, 2011.
