Cinderella, Beauty And The Beast, The Jungle Book, and now Mulan*–Disney has figured out that they can make craploads of money by making the same movies over and over again, this time in live-action instead of animation. As a comment I read on another site said, “Do people think movies go bad, like unrefrigerated produce?” Apparently!
So which other Disney classics should get the live-action treatment? I’ve got some ideas:
The Lion King: no humans; hundreds of large, wild animals, including apex predators; a wildebeest stampede–seems like a no-brainer. Lions are probably good actors, right?
Robin Hood: same as above, except this time the animals are wearing clothes and have to regularly interact in large, prey/predator groups. Perfect!
101 Dalmatians: They already did one, so clearly it’s time for a reboot, this time with Lady Gaga as Cruella.
The Little Mermaid: There’s gotta be an actress out there somewhere who can hold her breath for a really, really long time.
Aladdin: People would love and not be horribly upset at all by a non-Robin Williams Genie!
Frozen: It’s been OVER A YEAR since this movie came out! Where is the remake? WHERE??
*I can’t lie, I will 100% watch a live-action Mulan.
