All The Disney Live-Action Remakes That Are Coming Soon

4 min read

They just keep on coming!

In recent years there have been some pretty amazing live-action remakes of your favourite animated Disney movies, and there’s even more to come!

Dumbo has just hit cinemas, and later in the year we will see a Maleficent sequel, as well as Aladdin and The Lion King.

Hello Beyoncé!

Also in the works are remakes of Lady & The Tramp, Snow White, Mulan, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Lilo & Stitch, The Sword In The Stone and The Little Mermaid - fingers crossed it’s starring Lindsay Lohan.

We also know that Disney is currently working on a sequel to The Jungle Book, a Cinderella spin-off titled Charming, a 101 Dalmatians spin-off focusing on Cruella’s origin story starring Emma Stone, and a Tinker Bell live-action film starring Rhese Witherspoon.

Wow, that’s a lot to take in.

While we wait for Disney to release these films (as well as announce plans to remake Hercules - we’re waiting!), here’s a look at classic Disney movie posters alongside their modern adaptations.

Beauty & The Beast

Emma Watson as Belle and LeFou as Disney’s first LGBT character? Amazing.

Cinderella

Cate Blanchett deserved all the awards for her performance as the stepmother.

Alice In Wonderland

Tim Burton’s adaptation of the classic Disney film was both creepy and incredible.

The Jungle Book

The second live-action Jungle Book film deservedly won Best Visual Effects at the Academy Awards.

Sleeping Beauty

Maleficent portrayed the original story from the villain’s perspective and it’s incredible.

101 Dalmatians

While we’re excited for Emma Stone’s portrayal as Cruella De Vil, Glenn Close set the bar pretty high in this OG live-action remake.

Dumbo

It’s directed by Tim Burton, so you just KNOW that it’s good. Plus it’s a BABY ELEPHANT!

Aladdin

We didn’t expect Will Smith as Genie, but it’s perfect.

The Lion King

With an all-star cast and reports that Beyoncé’s voice will you make you cry, we can pretty much say that this will be the movie of the year.

2019 is looking GOOD!
