Top 5 Upcoming Live Action Disney Movies
Whether you hate the idea of more Live action Disney movies or love it, it doesn’t matter, they are coming.
As an avid Disney fan, myself, it’s hard for me not to hope for the best. And honestly, even though they are not my favorite, the remakes, have some very cool parts. This isn’t just me sucking up to the future Global government. Luke Evans as Gaston, Will Smith as Aladdin’s Genie (he made it his own), everything about Christopher Robin (2018), are some of the things that I love from live action Disney movies. Maybe these top 5 upcoming live action Disney movies will become one of your favorites.
Live Action Disney Movies – Lilo and Stitch
After the massive success of Moana, I bet we are all eager for some more of Hawaiian culture, especially surfing, which is a big part of Lilo and stitch. Not only that but Lilo in Stitch is a DEEPLY loved story. Showing the importance of friendship, even through difference and difficulty. That every family is unique. And to be who you are and forget the bullies. I’m looking at you Mertle.
Some are worried that a CGI stitch won’t work, and his charm is due to him being animation. Honestly that could be an issue. I hope Disney can pull it off.
Live Action Disney Movies – Hunchback of Notre Dame
I may be a little biased, as this is one of my all-time favorites. But that is also why I am a little nervous about it. Hunchback of Notre Dame is a deeply emotional story, and the film we have already does it justice. Does it need to be redone, what could be live-action bring to the table? All I can imagine is that it would be much darker.
That being said, the cinematography has the potential to be astoundingly beautiful, along with the songs if paired with the right actors. I know that Josh Gad is being considered, and he has a beautiful voice.
Keeping it’s very serious tones is important, of social justice, religious tyranny, and disabilities. I am interested to see what Disney pulls together.
I am very excited about this movie, Maybe that’s because I’m not a fan of the animated one. I love who they’ve cast, and I think Halle Bailey will do an amazing job. I also imagine that the film will be as fun and as colorful as the first.
Melissa Mcarthy is also set to Play Ursula, and I think she is a great choice. She is funny and has a great range. I don’t remember ever hearing her sing. Maybe she’s done it on screen before, but if she hasn’t, this will be an awesome debut.
I want this movie, but I have terms, Disney. First of all, keep the creepy and multiply it by 100. I want it to freak me the fork out, go all out on the donkey scene. Secondly, cast Neil Patrick Harris as Honest John, his natural charisma and entertaining demeanor would be perfect for the devilish child napper. Those are all my demands.
Tom Hanks is rumored for Geppetto, and he would perfect. He oozes good dad vibes.
I’m a huge fan of Emma stone, her eccentricity is a perfect match for this villain, and she looks incredible in her costume, I hope that they keep Cruella’s style as wild as possible. As bad as she is, she’s a fashion icon.
I am curious to see how they will do it. Will they try to give her a redemption story like with Maleficent? I don’t know if that is possible for Cruella. She tries to kill puppies! That’s pretty unforgivable. I am interested in what made her so evil.
So that’s what we got coming. Of course, we also have Mulan this year!
Honestly, I’m just waiting for them to remake Treasure Planet. That is literally all I want. As long as the music is kept the same.
Are you looking forward to these live-action Disney movies? I am, but they are not my favorite thing birthed by Disney. They are definitely a good way to revamp the music and mayyyybe tidy up the racism.
