  3. Do you think Disney will overplay their hand with all these live action remakes?

It's just too much. These are cynical cash grabs through and through. This is not cinema.

My gut tells me people will continue to eat up whatever focus group tested factory floor assembled movie Disney churns out.
I'm a peasant.
I think they are putting out too many of them, and seem to be taking the approach of "if it's old and liked release it in live action"

I don't see Cruella, Dumbo, or Lilo performing well.

No not really considering they are still making original films

Disney has always cashed in on their great animated films and in the early 2000s it was garbage direct to video sequels that were not canon

The ones so far have been better than their previous attempt at milking their classics so why not. Audiences have enjoyed all of them so far.

It’s not like those films are ruining the originals. I mean if Belle’s Enchanted Christmas or Return of Jafar didn’t ruin the originals nothing will. Plus the whole notion is stupid and the originals can’t be ruined.

I'm tired of it too. I heard a rumor last year they wanted to do the same with Nightmare before Christmas. I really can't picture that working in live action.
when the Story Lady will tell you about the fairy godmother who short circuited her wand and accidentally turned herself into a Budweiser sign.

That’s literally impossible to do in live action I doubt they would try

I think Aladdin and The Lion King are their two most precious properties, at least for people my age. So there's not a chance in the world I don't see them. With that said, it's insane that they are releasing them only two months apart. They should have held off a year on one of them.

I will kick a cat wearing Mickey Mouse ears if Disney actually does this.

We must be the same age.

And they really should space them apart.

Only to the extent that they’re in a massive rush to churn all these out. Soon they’ll run out of films to convert that people care about, so we only have to wait their best remaining options are Chicken Little and Home on the Range.

None of these things will ever bomb, though. The tyrannical grip of nostalgia influences many.

Lion King used to me my favorite Disney Movie. Not much interest in the remake. I think people will get annoyed.
