I recently saw the live action retelling of Beauty and the Beast and it got me thinking about all of the other great animated movies that would benefit from a live action makeover. A big problem I had with Beauty and The Beast is the live action aspect of the Movie did not add anything to the story. It was pretty much a carbon copy of the original animation with a few extra songs and ever so slightly edgier storylines. The next time Disney decides to create another live action movie they might want to think about changing things up. In the meantime, here are 5 Disney/Pixar movies that would be perfect candidates for live action remakes.
For what is meant to primarily be a movie for kids, Inside Out deals with the pretty heavy subject matter of Depression. I feel like if Pixar were to turn Inside Out into a live action movie it would completely flip the story on its head. Instead of the story being about depression it would make Inside Out about a girl who hears voices in her head and suffers from schizophrenia.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I seem to remember having a VHS of a live action version of Peter Pan, but I would like to see Peter Pan get a Wicked like transformation in which Captain Hook is actually a good guy.
Any Movie with the Mickey, Donald and the Classic Disney Gang
This does not really pertain to one movie in particular, but I would like to see Mickey and the gang actually portrayed as the animals they are meant to be. I am sure this would look ridiculous, but maybe they could just make it a funny spoof movie which the animals don’t talk but instead have speech bubbles.
I really want to see what the world of Monsters Inc would look like with CGI. I am sure it would be amazing, not to mention that they could really make the monsters a lot scarier than in the animated movie.
The Incredibles could be the next big superhero franchise. It’s funny and action-packed but it just needs some great intriguing scenery and special effects to go with it. Come to think of it Brave could also work just as well in an action type of remake where Merida has to save her village from enemies. As you can see I really haven’t thought this one through but, nevertheless, both of these movies would make great live action films.
These are a few of my suggestions for live action remakes. Which Disney/Pixar movies would you like to see get a Live Action remake?
PS: I have not posted on this blog for a while now. If you are the one loyal fan that looks forward to me posting on this blog every week I am sorry. I just needed some me time. In other words, I am sorry mom. Just kidding. My mom is not my only loyal fan. I actually have no fans unless you count the prepubescent friends of my much younger cousin.
