All 15 Disney Live-Action Remakes of Animated Classics, Ranked from Worst to Best (Photos)

  • The Wrap
Over the last decade, Disney has found itself dipping increasingly into its own well of nostalgic favorites. Specifically, they’ve been taking their beloved animated classics, remaking them in live-action (or mostly live-action), and producing one blockbuster smash after another.

Not all of these live-action Disney remakes are good, and some of the bad ones have unexpectedly interesting ideas. And some of them actually predate the current (and seemingly never-ending) wave. Let’s take a look at all of the live-action remakes of Disney’s animated classics, going all the way back to the 1990s, to explore which films improved on the original and which ones came up short.

15. “The Jungle Book” (1994)

The first live-action Disney remake of an animated Disney classic is, somehow, still the worst. Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy”) directs this frustratingly inert take on Rudyard Kipling’s stories, which strips the animals of their characterizations and highlights

Men in Black producer explains why Jump Street crossover Mib 23 fell apart

Back during 2014’s Sony hack, leaked documents revealed that the studio had been exploring a rather surprising crossover, Mib 23, which would have brought together the Men in Black and 21 Jump Street franchises as Jonah Hill’s Schmidt and Channing Tatum’s Jenko find themselves protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe.

Following the leak, Sony actually then decided to move forward with the project, releasing an early teaser logo and bringing James Bobin (The Muppets) on board to direct in mid-2016. However, things then fizzled out, before producer Walter Parkes confirmed earlier this year that the project was dead, and that they found it to be “an impossible match-up”.

Well, speaking to CinemaBlend this week to promote the release of Men in Black: International, Parkes has now elaborated on the difficulties that eventually led to the crossover’s demise.

Ranking Disney’s Live-Action Remakes from Worst to Best

Liam Hoofe ranks all of Disney’s live-action remakes from worst to best…

Last Friday, Disney released their latest remake of an animated classic, with Tim Burton attempting to bring Dumbo into the real world. The movie has been met with mixed reviews but will no doubt clean up at the box office, with Disney realising that remaking their old movies is effectively a license to print money.

Dumbo is not going to be the only animated classic to receive a live-action remake this year either, with both Aladdin and The Lion King both set for releases in the coming months.

A quick look at box office figures will tell you exactly why Disney continues to do this, and while there is an undeniable cynicism to remaking all of their animated movies, there is always an element of intrigue that will keep fans coming back for more.

‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’ Trailer Delivers ‘Tomb Raider’ Vibes

The first trailer for the live-action Dora and the Lost City of Gold movie has arrived from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players and Nickelodeon Movies.

Based on the popular Nickelodeon animated series Dora The Explorer, the movie ages Dora up into high school where she's been sent to hide from nefarious treasure hunters after spending her entire youth to that point living in the jungle.

It's a new look for Dora in this origin story as she and some friends are whisked away into a grand adventure that plays on the screen like an adolescent version of Tomb Raider. If successful this direction could spawn a franchise as Dora continues to age into her college years.

Isabela Moner is the first live-action Dora with Danny Trejo voicing Boots, her monkey. Yes, Boots will eventually talk like in the TV show, though he's noticeably non-speaking in the trailer.
