After Beauty and the Beast was successfully turned into live-action extravaganza starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans and Josh Gad earlier this year, Disney gave the OK to about a million more of our Disney animated faves to get the same treatment.
And let’s just say we want it to be 2019 already, 'cos that’s when they’re due to come out.
There’s obviously a lot of pressure for the people involved to make these movies epic. Fans of the OG animated films have very specific ideas about who should be cast in these roles, especially because they’re closely tied to our childhoods, and pretty much everything we love about Disney.
Another reason why everything is being turned into a live-action film is because technology has made it easier for the fantastical elements of these films to come to life — even a few years ago, flying in movies (à la Peter Pan) looked a little dodgy.
