Link to our thread on Maleficent (2014).

Links to our Disney-live-action-films-based-on-animated-films threads on Enchanted (2007), Alice in Wonderland (2010), The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010), Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016), Alice through the Looking Glass (2016), Pete's Dragon (2016), Beauty and the Beast (2017), Christopher Robin (2018), Dumbo (2019), Aladdin (2019), The Lion King (2019), Lady and the Tramp (2019), Mulan (2020), The Chronicles of Prydain (in development), Cruella (in development), Enchanted 2 (in development), The Jungle Book 2 (in development), Genies (in development), Lilo & Stitch (in development) The Little Mermaid (in development), Night on Bald Mountain (in development), Peter Pan (in development), Pinocchio (in development), Prince Charming (in development), The Sword in the Stone (in development) and Tink (in development). We don't seem to have any threads on 101 Dalmatians (1996) or 102 Dalmatians (2000). Has Disney made any *other* live-action films based on their cartoons?

'Maleficent' Sequel Moving Forward at Disney
Disney is moving forward with a sequel to its live-action hit Maleficent, tapping Linda Woolverton to write the script.
Woolverton, who is in talks to pen the sequel, has become quite a major part of Disney's live-action creation team. She wrote the script for the first Maleficent, which starred Angelina Jolie and earned a magical $758.4 million worldwide. She also wrote the script for the sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass, which stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway. And through the years she's worked on some of Disney's animated classics, including Beauty and the Beast (which also is being made into a live-action film starring Emma Watson), The Lion King and Mulan. . . .

What is the point of this movie?


There is this difference between the growth of some human beings and that of others: in the one case it is a continuous dying, in the other a continuous resurrection. (George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie)

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)
