7 Disney Movies That Need To Be Turned Into Live Action Remakes, ASAP

There's a whole new world of Disney remakes coming.


I think we can all agree that when it comes to the box office, Disney rules all. With its new pictures and live-action remakes, there have been plenty of films released by Disney that make our inner children come out and sing with joy. And with all the live-action remakes hitting screens soon—from "Dumbo" to "Aladdin" to "Mulan"—here are seven animated films that Disney seriously needs to bring to life.

1. "The Little Mermaid"

"The Little Mermaid" brought about the Renaissance of Disney films and could very well bring about a new age of live-action remakes as well. With actors already in talks to potentially bring our favorite sea-dwelling characters, "The Little Mermaid" may be splashing into theaters within the next few years.

2. "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is a beautiful, underrated Disney movie whose messages of acceptance still ring true today. Luckily, a screenwriter has already been tapped to begin work on a live-action remake for this one, so we might be able to head ~out there~ and see the film soon!

3. "Hercules"

"Hercules" is quite possibly the greatest Disney movie of all time, and that's the gospel truth. Beloved by all, the most famous hero in history is being brought to life through the stage, so why not translate it into a live-action film as well?

4. "Tangled"

All right, I know that "Tangled" is one of the more recent Disney films, but it's such a fan favorite that Disney could be making a very smart decision in bringing it to life. Besides, who wouldn't want to see a live-action Flynn Ryder on screen?

5. "The Emperor's New Groove"

This one might be tough — what with the llamas and everything — but Disney might be pulling the right lever by turning "The Emperor's New Groove" into a live-action film. Its iconic lines and excellent storyline would have us all grooving into the theaters.

6. "The Princess and The Frog"

Another underrated Disney movie, "The Princess and The Frog" would be absolutely outstanding to see come to life. Full of jazz music and beautiful scenery, "The Princess and The Frog" could be hopping into theaters sooner rather than later.

7. "Frozen"

I know what you're thinking: "Frozen" just came out and its sequel is coming out this year. I get that, but what with the success of its Broadway musical, Disney might need to just ~let it go~ and turn "Frozen" into a live-action remake. With all the magic, it'd be sure to be a hit.

Which Disney movie would you want to see become a live-action remake?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
