What is it with all the Disney Remakes in the works. When it comes to Walt’s movies, no one is going to be able to beat the originals no matter how hard they try. In my opinion they should be left well alone and stay the amazing movies that they where while I was growing up. Dont people realise by now that the classics should not be touched as you can’t better perfection. Leave Disney alone and come up with new children’s movies.
The remakes said to be in the works are:
Beauty and the Beast.
There is so much hype around this remake and everyone’s expectations are in high hopes. There is nothing wrong with the classic animation the way it was, obviously though, that’s my opinion. Although im sure many Disney fans will agree with me. The casting choices has revealed are Emma Watson as the beautiful Belle, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Luke Evans and Dan Stevens will be fighting for belles affection as Gaston and The Beast.
Yup that’s right our favourite wooden boy is on this list too. On the plus side with this one Pinocchio will hopefully become a real boy after all. It Is currently in the early stages of development but rumors are, it will only be loosely based on the animation.
We will be returning to Neverland with a live action peter pan. It has been done before but this remake will be based on the original from 1953.
101 Dalmatians – Cruella.
This Classic like Maleficent will be based around the villans story Cruella De vil. Emma Stone is apparently going to star as Cruella and the studio is hoping to shoot sometime in late 2016.
Aladdin – Genies.
This live action remake will be focusing on the genies point of view. Sadly im sure we would all agree, the late Robin Williams should be playing this part.
Peter Pans fistey fairy friend is also getting her own big movie. With big names such as Reese Witherspoon and Victoria Strouse, who wrote the script for Pixar’s upcoming film Finding Dory, is attached to the project.
Other Disney remakes will be:
Cinderella – Prince Charming, Snow White – Rose Red, Whinne The Pooh, Mulan, Sword In The Stone, Dumbo, Jungle book 2, Sleeping Beauty – Maleficent 2.
