On March 31st it was announced  that Disney is planning on making a Live-Action Mulan movie, Source. This adds to number of Live-ation remakes following Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo and I guess Maleficent is in the mix too.

Really we all know what they are doing, these movies are clear cash grabs on popular properties. Though why Dumbo I don’t know. I mean I loved Dumbo as a kid, I still do but it’s kinda of the odd one out. You would think Snow White or the Little Mermaid over Dumbo but whatever, I’m not a studio executive nor did they ask me my opinion, I mean the should have but whatever.

But the question I have to force myself to ask, will Hunchback get this treatment? I’m going on the offence here and say probably not as Disney likes to forget that movie existed though not as much as The Black Cauldron. However unlike The Black Cauldron, which could be awesome as a live-action movie, Hunchback did get a musical which is getting a TONS of praise and does have a fan base. So it COULD maybe happen, like 0.05% chance.

Personally for me, I would love a new movie version, bad or good. And Hunchback makes more sense than a Live-Action Dumbo movie that will be mostly CG anyway so the Live-action in a misnomer. But do you think would you like Disney Hunchback live-action movie and do you even want one?

4 Thoughts on “Disney Live-Action Remakes

    They also announced a live-action Winnie the Pooh movie but I’m not sure if this was an April fool’s joke.
    Anyway, these remakes annoy me. But HoND is one of the few Disney movies I’d actually LIKE to see as such.

      I’m a movie-costume junkie so I don’t care as long as the costume are pretty, which was the case with Cinderella.

    I would love a new Hunchback movie! I just don’t think that Disney should do another. I liked the Disney version fine, I just don’t know if they can add that much too it. I agree to that Dumbo should not get a remake, especially with Tim Burton directing! But from the eyes of Disney, Dumbo is very popular, including the others mentioned. Hunchback was not a big hit and Black Caldron bombed so bad that the Care Bears movie did better! So I kind of understand it from that perspective. But I really want Disney to get over this phase, I know try want more money but they now own Marvel and Star Wars. So it is pretty much pointless and it will just upset fans. But anyway, someone needs to make a Hunchback movie. If not I wil make it myself, I am serious!
