Aladdin Live-Action Remake

Recommended Posts

Guy Ritchie is going to direct this one.

Quote

John August wrote the script for the live-action version, which sources say will keep many of the musical elements of the original. Still to be determined is the approach to the Genie, which to this day remains closely associated to Williams' singular and defining performance.

Also, part of the non-traditional aspect of the project is the studio's intent to make it non-linear, a move right out of the Ritchie playbook. The helmer made his name directing snappy crime thrillers such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch that used that kind of storytelling. He last directed The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and is in postproduction on King Arthur, Warners’ upcoming take on the Camelot legend.

Not sure if this instead of or in addition to Genies, the prequel that PTC posted about last year.

Also from that thread, his giant list of links to other live-action Disney remakes.

Links to our threads on Enchanted (2007), Alice in Wonderland (2010), The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010), Maleficent (2014), Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016), Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass (2016), Beauty and the Beast (2017), Cruella (in development), Dumbo (in development), Enchanted 2 (in development), Maleficent 2 (in development), Mulan (in development), Night on Bald Mountain (in development), Pinocchio (in development), Prince Charming (in development), Tink (in development) and Winnie the Pooh (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?


It's the side effects that save us.
