20 Live-Action Disney Movies on the Way We Can't Wait to See

Aladdin 2019

There's a hodgepodge of opinions on Disney rehashes -- whether we're talking sequels, prequels, spin-offs, or straight-up remakes -- there's no doubt that people are starting to question Disney's authority on creativity. Of course, everyone loves a good Disney movie but it begs the question: Is there really any integrity left for the classics or are they all just moneymakers in the animation company's eyes?

We're not faulting anyone for loving a revamp, but considering how cost-effective live-action movies are compared to animated ones -- it leaves a lot to be said about Disney's intentions ... and not exactly for the best reasons.

Why write a new script when anyone can take an old story and retell it? It's all about the money -- even though we all know Disney isn't going to go bankrupt anytime soon. Quantity seems to be put over quality these days, especially when it'll "quantify" what's in their wallets. That being said, there's a lot of opportunity for good in these remakes and sequels -- for example, it seems as if Disney is expanding its reach on representation for its live-action films such as Mulan, Lilo & Stitch, and Aladdin. The company is starting to get with the program, although it still has a long way to go.

(Fewer celebrities, to start with.)

In any case, it's hard not to be a little excited for certain titles coming up. Whether they're in development or on the way, we're here to keep an eye on what's heading our way.

Here are 20 live action Disney revisits that people are sure to be hitting the theaters (or their streaming services) for!
