Disney has announced that in the coming months and years all of your favorite tales will be back and better than ever in live-action.

Disney is well known for their mesmerizing stories that still put a smile on your face years later.  Recently, Disney released live-action versions of Beauty and The Beast, Christopher Robin, and The Jungle Book. The first live-action Disney film was 101 Dalmatians in 1996.

Disney is creating so many live-action remakes of classic tales because it has been said the new looks of the movies appeal to adults and children with modern affairs. Disney is also remaking these beloved tales for profit and income. Beauty and The Beast made over $1.2 billion at the global box office, and The Jungle Book gained $966 million worldwide in a matter of weeks (ScreenRant.com). The prices for movie tickets have increased drastically over the past three decades (InStyle.com). The average movie ticket in 2018 is $9.27; a decade ago it was $7.18, and a decade before that it was $4.69.

Disney has the privilege of re-imagining these stories due to 3-D and CGI technology. Disney also has IP, which is intellectual property. They have the rights to all of the stories they produce and IP rights to the Marvel and Lucasfilm franchises (InStyle.com).

Disney is making all these remakes because they don’t want to take any risks on new ideas. The audiences also like familiar films, and some animated films don’t bring in that much money.

Disney has about 17 remakes in the making for the upcoming years. They include The Nutcracker and The Four Realms (Nov. 2018), Mulan (2019), Aladdin (2019), Dumbo (Mar. 2019), The Little Mermaid (2019), and The Lion King (2019).
