Disney Continues To Cannibalize Catalog With 9 More Live Action Adaptations

There are times when I really feel like the old man on the porch, yelling at kids to get off his lawn. Ever since Disney hit it big with their live action adaptation of Alice In Wonderland, they’ve been on a mission to remake their entire animated catalog. Sure, it can be cool to see these stories in a new format, but the problem is that the technology is fleeting. I can go back to Pete’s Dragon or the original Alice in Wonderland and still lose myself in the classic animation that immediately takes you to a fantasy world. However, when you start monkeying around with CGI, you end up with graphics that will look cheesy and outdated in less than five years. Essentially, they are cannibalizing their legacy for some quick wins at the box office.

With that said, here’s the onslaught for which we should all prepare:

-Cruella with Emma Stone set for the title role and Kelly Marcel writing
- A Wrinkle in Time with Ava DuVernay attached to direct and Jennifer Lee writing
- Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson set to star and John Requa and Glenn Ficarra writing
- Dumbo with director Tim Burton and writer Ehren Kruger
- A sequel to Mary Poppins with director Rob Marshall, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda
- Maleficent 2 with Angelina Jolie set to return in the title role and Linda Woolverton writing
- The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with director Lasse Hallstrom and writer Ashleigh Powell
- The Jungle Book 2 with both director Jon Favreau and writer Justin Marks returning
- A Tinker Bell project with Reese Witherspoon set to star and Victoria Strouse writing
