Disney Live-Action Remake Wishlist – POP 5

It seems Disney has no plans on halting with the live-action recreations of their classic tales. Audiences have shown that they want more, with “Maleficent” bringing in an estimated $70 million during it’s debut weekend. Disney gave us a sneak peek of the iconic glass slipper spotlighted in a teaser trailer of the upcoming live-action film version of “Cinderella.” While other rumors are flying around about “The Jungle Book” recreation, we can announce that Disney will be creating a live-action “Beauty and the Beast” film. Bill Condon currently has the title of director and Mandeville Films is set to produce the film. In celebration of this upcoming movie, we can’t help but center today’s POP 5 around Disney animated films we wish to see in live-action form.


Disney Live-Action Remake Wishlist – POP 5

5. “The Princess and the Frog”

First off, let’s not hire Tyler Perry to play the princess in this film. I think this film would be very easy to make and would be great for the culture that is New Orleans. Jennifer Hudson previously posed as Tiana for a Disney Dream Portrait series by Annie Leibovitz. Only task would be the creation of the little ole frog.

4. “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame”

Now Universal previously released a live-action version of this film in 1923. It actually was the highest grossing silent film of theirs, bringing in $3 million. While this picture looks pretty frightening, we all know the hunchback isn’t supposed to be that attractive. I could see them take a darker approach to this film, which has plenty of evil and wrongdoing within it.

3. “Pocahontas”

Take a trip with me just around the riverbend, to a place where a tree gives out life-lessons. Since Disney let’s full ethnicity kinda slide in these films, example being Johnny Depp in “The Lone Ranger,” I have my Pocahontas actress choices. Naya Rivera from “Glee” has both the pipes and the looks. Then there is also the former Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger. I’ll sacrifice seeing some really good acting if either of those were picked.

2. “Aladdin”

Seriously, can you see the epic flying carpet and a mystical blue genie? If the budget was big enough, this movie would be epic! It could take us to a whole new world, literally. A little CG here and a little CG there, that’s all I’m asking for. Plus you know the guys will drool over Princess Jasmine and the girls would swoon over Aladdin himself. They had a monkeys in Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful,” so this could totally be possible.

1. “The Little Mermaid”

One word, mermaids. The whole idea of creating a world for actors that is either underwater or one that simulates water, is so intriguing! You know Ursula would be terrifying. I think there would be one director and one director only for this film and that is Tim Burton. Plus Disney has already visited the world of mermaids in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
