Disney Live Action Remakes
With the recent surge of interest in live action remakes of animated Disney classics, we thought we would take a minute to discuss this trend & whether or not it even needs to be a thing.
Now, we're not saying that the live action remakes that have already been released, like Cinderella (2015), the Jungle Book (2016) or Beauty & the Beast (2017) are inherently good or bad. The question is simply: do they have a reason to exist? Keep in mind, we are referring to movies specifically remaking the original animated classics, not spin-off stories. So, while some of what we say may also apply to movies like Snow White & the Huntsman (2012), Mirror Mirror (2012), or Maleficent (2014), they are not exactly what we are referring to.
What have your thoughts been on these movies? Are you looking forward to any of the upcoming ones? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!
