5 Classic Disney Cartoons That Need A Live-Action Reboot

5 Classic Disney Cartoons That Need A Live-Action Reboot

Hint: One puts the glad in gladiator.


If there is anything I have learned in my life, it is that Disney will always find a way to make money.

With the recent announcement that Disney will start their own streaming service in 2019, the House of Mouse looks to be every bit of the business empire we have come to know them as. Today, however, we will be focusing on another money-making tactic Disney has recently employed: remaking their classic movies.

Though the quality of these remakes have been hit-and-miss (the Alice in Wonderland remake wasn't that great, while the "Jungle Book" and "Cinderella" remakes arguably outdid their originals), they have all brought Disney a whole lot of bank. There is clearly no signs of this trend stopping, as remakes for "Lion King," "Aladdin" and "Mulan" have either been announced or already started casting. In this article, I am gonna focus on possible Disney remakes that haven't been announced yet (that I know of) but should be in the near future.

5. "Hercules"

Seeing as the CGI used in the Beauty and the Beast remake made the film look huge, imagine how good it would look with Hercules. Disney animation and Greek mythology were a perfect marriage back then, and the CGI Disney has can only make it look better. You can even give James Woods the James Earl Jones in Lion King treatment (i.e. bring him back to reprise his role as Hades) once he's done ranting about how liberals hate statues.

4. "Tarzan"

Yes, I know that there was a Tarzan movie that came out last year from Warner Bros., that didn't do well. But, give this classic story the Disney touch, and you got yourself a winner. Just don't bring back Phil Collins #UnpopularOpinon or Rosie O'Donnell #PopularOpinon.

3. "Haunted Mansion"

Simply put, this awesome ride deserves a better movie than Eddie Murphy half-assing it in between his Shrek paychecks.

2. "Hunchback of Notre Dame"

Though this might be the most controversial movie on this list, this is an awesome Disney film that gets disgustingly overlooked. With great music, Disney's darkest villain and an amazing setting that is just begging for the Beauty and the Beast remake treatment, a remake of this movie would be an absolute treat to see.

1. "The Little Mermaid"

Even though this film is the most likely one on this list to get remade next, I am shocked that this remake hasn't been announced yet. As the movie that started the famed Disney Renaissance, this is a possible remake that deserves the best treatment possible. Just make sure that they don't mistakenly put a phallic symbol on the poster.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
