At least this time, it isn’t a flat out live-action copy of an existing animated classic. There’s actually a bit of originality involved this time around.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is developing a live-action prequel to the 1992 Arabian animated hit, Aladdin. Tentatively titled Genies, the new adventure will explore the world of genies and give a backstory to the character voiced by Robin Williams in the original. Exactly how he became trapped in the magic lamp.

Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been given the task to write the screenplay. Reportedly, this project will eventually lead up to live-action adaptation of Aladdin. No shock there.

This news comes on the string of numerous previously announced live-action remakes of Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Winnie The Pooh and Pinocchio. Not to mention the already released Maleficent and Cinderella.

What are your thoughts on a prequel? Excited that at least it’ll be somewhat of an original concept? Weigh in below.

The Finest Hours tells the tale of a suicide rescue mission off the Cape Cod coast to save two oil tankers that were hit by a nor’easter. The motor life boat’s crew were heroically involved in rescuing nearly all the tankers’ crewmen. The harrowing story is based on true events that took place in 1952. Since it’s a Disney movie, you know it’s going to have a feel-good happy ending.

Chris Pine shows off a thick Boston accent to play Boatswains Mate First Class Bernard Webber. Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Eric Bana and Holliday Grainger round out the cast. The disaster drama film sails into theaters on January 29, 2016. Check out the first trailer below.

No lie here. Disney is developing yet another live-action adaptation of one of their animated classics. Someone stop the insanity.

After all these years, Geppetto finally gets his wish. Pinocchio will be a real life boy. The 1940 classic is based on Carlo Collodi’s 1883 novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio. It tells the story of a wood-carver named Geppetto and his puppet who is brought to life.

Someone stop the madness!!! Am I the only who think this is getting ridiculously out of control. Walt Disney just announced plans to produce another live-action adaptation of an animated classic. This time around it’s Winnie The Pooh.

Deadline reports the movie will follow “Christopher Robin as an adult, which brings him back to A.A. Milne’s famous bear and the Hundred Acre Wood.” Sundance darling Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Phillip) has been tapped to pen the screenplay.

This latest remake comes on the heels of the Mulan live-action which the studio announced earlier this week. Production for Beauty and the Beast is already underway with The Jungle Book and Dumbo on the horizon.

Which beloved animated film is next? Who would you cast in the live-action Winnie The Pooh film? Sound off below.

Disney Reveals Live-Action Mulan Film Is Next

Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live with the assistance of The Rock joked that a live-action Bambi was on the way. Though it was just a parody, at Walt Disney’s current pace of remaking their classics, I wouldn’t be surprised if the studio announces an actual film about the beloved dear was in development. After all, they are working on a Dumbo live-action film as we speak.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Mulan is next on the production line. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (We’re the Millers) are producing the new project.

The 1998 animated classic follows a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can take her father’s place in the army and go to war. With the help of her trusty dragon sidekick Mushu, she becomes a skilled warrior and, eventually, one of the country’s greatest heroines.

With Dumbo, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast and now Mulan on the way, which animated classic do you think is next to get a live-action remake? Weigh in below and check out Christina Aguilera’s soundtrack contribution “Reflection.” One of my favorite Disney theme songs from the 90s for sure.
