Disney Is Remaking Your Childhood

You know the saying “look at the past to see the future”? Apparently, that’s Disney’s whole creative process now. Following the massive box office success of the Sleeping Beauty adaptation Maleficent and 2015’s Cinderella (which have combined to bring in more than $1 billion worldwide), Disney announced even more live-action remakes. Here’s a dive into the Disney vault to look at the beloved animated movies from your childhood that are getting rebooted:

The Jungle Book

Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray (!) and Idris Elba star in one of two new live-action Jungle Book films coming in 2016.


Tim Burton—of course—is bringing one of Disney’s original blockbusters back to the big screen.


Reese Witherspoon is set to star in an origins story of the Peter Pan fairy Tinkerbell.


Disney is making a new version of the classic, but Robert Downey Jr. is also working on an adaptation.
