    Recently, there has been announcements of several treasured Disney Animated Classics to be remade into live action versions.

    The likes of:
    Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs (in the forms of Mirror Mirror and Snow White & The Huntsman – plus its sequel)
    Alice In Wonderland
    Sleeping Beauty (in the form of Maleficent)
    Cinderella
    Pinocchio
    Mulan
    Beauty & The Beast
    Dumbo
    The Jungle Book 
    Winnie The Pooh

    are all to be remade over the next few years.

    But of those which have remained untouched, thus far, which DOES NOT need a remake the most, and should be left completely untouched and un-remade? And why?

    I believe that The Lion King should remain un-remade the most.

    1: It is one of two films on the list provided which features an all non-human cast, which works perfectly in animated form. To me, remaking this with heavy CGI use of animals would not work.

    2: It is my favourite film of all those on the list, and should remain untouched by Disney.

    3: Of all the films, if any is to suffer greatest in comparison to its original animated counterpart, this is it.

    The Lion King was re-envisioned for the stage. Hence nobody thinks it’s untouchable for a live-action remake.

    Lion King has already been re-envisioned for the stage. Those elements would be used for a new live-action film version.[/quote]

    I highly doubt if a live action film were to be made, that it would be done with the humans in costumes and puppets that the stage show uses. If it were to be done, I imagine it would be done so using all CGI animals in some form, possibly with some degree of motion capture performance.

    From that untouchables list, leave BAMBI alone. This is back when the actual Disney was an early conservationist with an eye for the natural world.

    This is the Disney film which had me crying as a child, finding out for the first time that man eat deer.

    Stay away from it. O and Dumbo guy Burton; have ya partnered up with Ringlings yet you ass wipe?

    Mirror Mirror and Snow White & the Huntsman weren’t made by Disney (despite Snow White & the Huntsman having  the same producer as some of the Disney ones) so I don’t believe those count.

    Out of the ones they did “remade”, Cinderella is the only one I think counts as a remake. I really like Cinderella but I perfer Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent over it because those two I feel aren’t remake. Alice in Wonderland plays it as a sequel (what are they going to for the sequel?), and Maleficent while faithful to the fairy-tale Sleeping Beauty, they do change up the roles, add a few twists and make it more pro-woman with it’s take on true loves kiss, which I thought was really cool and refreshing.

    I’m cool with remakes, I think you can do something interesting with a live-action Mulan, Pinocchio, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Black Cauldron (which I want to see happen). I don’t want to see the ones where animals are the primary characters like Bambi, Lion King, Dumbo, Rescuers.

    I see Beauty & the Beast being an adaptation of the boradway show more so than the animated version and make more money than Alice in Wonderland.

    Aladdin is the best of the list, so I voted that.

    I can see why The Lion King is leading though and Bambi also with animals is in second.

    I think the true answer is none of the above. I really think this tread needs to end. I think Alice in Wonderland’s sucess came from a large Tim Burton fan base and because Alice in Wonderland has alot more to it than these other films with several books with more characters and adventures (plus it was in 3D and boosted sales). So I think this came off of false hope. I really want Disney to venture back into either Original content or adaptations they haven’t done yet. Like I want to see more Bride to Terebithia and Narnia type films

    I was thrilled with the Narnia attempts. But they were simply “too expensive” to carry on with every book adaptation. As for Bridge, I dont know what happened there. A terrific film which doesnt shy away from the sadness in our lives.

    Hoping that is a positive review of Terabithia? I can’t tell by the way you word it. Yeah and I understand your point and I think Disney did face huge blows with Mars Needs Moms and John Carter and Lone Ranger but I think they need to venture back into the fantasy book world and stay away from the scifi stuff

    Thanks for pointing this out Kyle. I get that all the time. I’m too “cryptic” or, “not sure what you mean”. I’ll take this opportunity to say that this has gotten me into situations where I have to stop and try to figure out what the big huffaw is all about.

    I did say that Bridge is a terrific film, and it doesnt try to ‘clean up’ life as it can be. Great perfs from the kids too. I’d actually like to see AnnaSophia Robb get more positive attention than she has. Same with Bailee Madison. Josh Hutcherson certainly has done well for himself.

    The Lion King. Do. Not. Touch. It.

    While I’m already tired of this trend -especially since it has been wasted and poorly managed-, I always thought of Aladdin and The Little Mermaid as potential extraordinary live-actions… doing it properly. But I don’t trust these half-ass ugly adaptations that Disney is producing.

    Also I think Lilo & Stitch in the right-extra-cool hands could be an awesome live-action film!

    But the percent of achieving that awesomeness is close to zero. So I add: Do. Not. Touch. My. Lilo. &. Stitch.

    Ah ok. Yeah and this was my first introduction to Zooey Deshunel (I didn’t catch on to Elf until later in life). But yes these are the types of films I with Disney made again. Adventure movies with a heart that aren’t something we’ve seen already

    I saw the Narnia movies last year and they really won me over by the end of the three.

    Bridge to Terabithia was a while ago, but I think that that was a good one too.
