Disney Remakes That Are Coming to Cinemas
1. Sword in the Stone
This 1963 animated feature charmed audiences upon its release. It became the sixth-highest-grossing film of the year. It is a retelling of the legendary British leader Arthur and Merlin, the wizard who aids him in his journey. Game of Thrones producer Bryan Cogman is currently attached to pen the screenplay of the upcoming film, which is considered to be iconic as it was the last film released before Walt Disney‘s death in 1966.
2. Winnie the Pooh
Among all the Disney remakes on this list, a Winnie the Pooh adaptation is the most unexpected. But Disney Studios confirmed that it is indeed happening and that the upcoming movie will feature Christopher Robin as a grown-up, and writer Alex Ross Perry is attached to pen the script.
3. Snow White: Rose Red
You might be thinking, What? Another Snow White movie? Well, Rose Red isn’t exactly what you think. The story still features the iconic character Snow White, but this time it will center around Rose Red, her not-so-popular sister. In the original Grimm story line, Rose Red is on a race against time to save her sister after she takes a bite of the poisoned apple.
4. Aladdin: Genies
Aside from the stunning music that we came to know through the movie Aladdin, the Genie was another highlight of this iconic film. Sadly, the late Robin Williams, who voiced Genie, isn’t around to do the film anymore. As to who his replacement will be, that detail remains unknown.
The upcoming remake will center around the titular character and will explore how he ended up in the lamp.
5. Cinderella: Prince Charming
This may not be considered as one of the official Disney remakes due to the fact that it will center around a character that is totally different although very related to the lead one in the original films. Prince Charming is set to take front and center in the screenplay written by Matt Fogel, and needless to say, it has audiences growing curious about how this new movie will turn out.
