Disney Pushing Live Action Films

After the success of The Jungle Book it’s not surprising to hear that Disney is really pushing their live action films. Beauty and the Beast was already planned, but it seems a lot more movies have been added to the upcoming list. Disney has announced/confirmed a number of announcements along those lines. One such announcement is that Tim Burton will be directing a live action Dumbo movie. Emma Stone has been confirmed as taking on the role of Cruella de Ville in the live action Cruella. A sequel to Mary Poppins has been announced, as well as follow ups to both The Jungle Book and Maleficent. All of this on top of rumors of even more Disney classics being remade into live action movies, as well as a few new original titles. Disney is being rather reserved about specific details, but it does seem that pushing live action will be a major direction for the next few years at least. We’re excited to see what they are able to do with many of these titles, though we do have some hesitation about how some of our childhood favorites might turn out as live action films. As more news about all these projects unfold we will keep you updated.
