All The Disney Live-Action Remakes That Are Coming Soon

4 min read

They just keep on coming!

In recent years there have been some pretty amazing live-action remakes of your favourite animated Disney movies, and there’s even more to come!

In 2019 we’ve already been blessed with Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King, and later in the year, we will see a Maleficent sequel.

Also in the works are remakes of Lady & The Tramp, Snow White, Mulan, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Lilo & Stitch and The Sword In The Stone.

PLUS The Little Mermaid has been announced, and while Lindsay Lohan isn’t Ariel we're crossing our fingers that Harry Styles is Prince Eric.

We also know that Disney is currently working on a sequel to The Jungle Book, a Cinderella spin-off titled Charming, a 101 Dalmatians spin-off focusing on Cruella’s origin story starring Emma Stone, and a Tinker Bell live-action film starring Rhese Witherspoon.

Wow, that’s a lot to take in.

While we wait for Disney to release these films (as well as announce plans to remake Hercules - we’re waiting!), here’s a look at classic Disney movie posters alongside their modern adaptations.

Beauty & The Beast

Emma Watson as Belle and LeFou as Disney’s first LGBT character? Amazing.


Cate Blanchett deserved all the awards for her performance as the stepmother.

Alice In Wonderland

Tim Burton’s adaptation of the classic Disney film was both creepy and incredible.

The Jungle Book

The second live-action Jungle Book film deservedly won Best Visual Effects at the Academy Awards.

Sleeping Beauty

Maleficent portrayed the original story from the villain’s perspective and it’s incredible.

101 Dalmatians

While we’re excited for Emma Stone’s portrayal as Cruella De Vil, Glenn Close set the bar pretty high in this OG live-action remake.


It’s directed by Tim Burton, so you just KNOW that it’s good. Plus it’s a BABY ELEPHANT!


We didn’t expect Will Smith as Genie, but it’s perfect.

The Lion King

With an all-star cast including BEYONCÉ, we can pretty much say that this will be the movie of the year.
