Disney's Plan To Remake 16 Classics

From animation to live films, Disney stops at nothing.


Starting in 1937, the Walt Disney Studios starting making billions of dollars with their hit "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Since then, they have created 55 feature films, ending with their latest one, "Zootopia," in 2016. With new technology making it possible, Disney has also recently started remaking their old classic animations into live film movies. The first big remake to hit the theaters was "Cinderella" in 2015. The original movie was first released in 1950 and made $263,591,415 in the world wide box office. The newest "Cinderella" film made $543,514,353. Since Disney started making this big of a profit off of a remake of their classic, they have announced that they will soon create 16 of their classic animations into live films. "Cinderella," "Alice in Wonderland," "Pete's Dragon," "Sleeping Beauty" and "The Jungle Book" have already been released. However, "Beauty and the Beast," "Peter Pan," "Dumbo," "Pinocchio," "Sword in the Stone," "Mulan," "Winnie the Pooh," "Tinker Bell," "Snow White," "Aladdin" and "Prince Charming" will also soon be made into live films.

With a company that is worth approximately $1.3 billion, there is no end to how many movies they will produce. Princess fans everywhere go insane every time a new princess is created, and by remaking many of the original princess movies, even more young girls will fall in love with them.

The next movie to be released will be "Pete's Dragon" on August 12, 2016.The original movie from 1977 with Elliot the dragon did not receive much attention, but that did not stop Disney from trying again. Soon after that, "Beauty and the Beast" will follow on March 17, 2017. This remake will star "Harry Potter's" own Emma Watson as Belle. Also featured in the movie will be Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth. The rest of the new films have just starting filming, and do not have release dates yet.
