Despite a few films already having come out, Disney’s live action remakes are just getting underway. We’ve seen Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent , Cinderella, and Jungle Book already, and this year we’ll see Alice Through the Looking Glass and Pete’s Dragon, with Beauty and the Beast opening next year. But here is a list of the remainder live action remakes, though some are still untitled:
Cruella with Emma Stone set for the title role and Kelly Marcel writing.
A Wrinkle in Time with Ava DuVernay attached to direct and Jennifer Lee writing.
Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson set to star and John Requa and Glenn Ficarra writing.
Dumbo with director Tim Burton and writer Ehren Kruger.
A sequel to Mary Poppins with director Rob Marshall, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Maleficent 2 with Angelia Jolie set to return in the title role and Linda Wolverton writing.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with director Lasse Hallstrom and writer Ashleigh Powell.
The Jungle Book 2 with both director Jon Favreau and writer Justin Marks returning.
A Tinker Bell project with Reese Witherspoon set to star and Victoria Strouse writing.
The studio has also updated their release schedule with the following dates:
UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) previously dated on 12/22/17 moves up to 7/28/17
UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) now dated on 4/6/18
UNTITLED DISNEY LIVE ACTION now dated on 8/3/18
UNTITLED DISNEY LIVE ACTION now dated on 12/25/18
UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) now dated on 12/20/19
Look, we were skeptical about this whole thing to begin with (particularly after Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, and Cinderella, which range from not so good to kind of decent), but Jungle Book turned the page for sure. Not only is it the best out of the bunch, but it’s one of the best films of the year so far, so there is hope.
