Disney Animation To Live Action

There’s no doubt that Disney is considered to be one of the greatest storytellers of all time. Millions of kids, even of different generations can recall their favorite Disney story. If there is one thing that sells; it’s a good story, and no one knows that better than Hollywood. Come on, there’s a reason they allow numerous adaptations of Disney films such a large budget – you know it will do well in the box office.

In Mia Galuppo’s article she lists the upcoming Disney animation films that are planned to be live action movies:

  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Pete’s Dragon
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • 101 Dalmatians
  • Maleficent Sequel
  • Jungle Book 2
  • Peter Pan
  • Pinocchio
  • Dumbo
  • Sword in the Stone
  • Mulan
  • Winnie the Pooh
  • Tinker Bell
  • Snow White
  • Aladdin
  • Prince Charming

I’m not one to complain about any live-action Disney film, I hardly watch one and regret it. However, I can’t help but question why so many remakes are planned? My first guess is that Hollywood knows what sells. Take a look at the recent box-office hits like Cinderella, Maleficent, and now The Jungle Book. A Disney remake targets audiences of all ages, only allowing for more success in theaters. Personally, I’m excited to see some of the new spins on old fairytales.
