In honor of the release of The Lion King (2019), we returned to the sparse memory of the new obsession imagined by Disney to research what projects were worth and not worth all the time, effort and nostalgia.
FYI: Movies away, like Mary Poppins is back (2018), and remakes of Disney classics that were largely already live-action, like Pete's Dragon (2016), were excluded. Enjoy!
At first glance, filmmaker Tim Burton and author Lewis Carroll look like a match of paradise. Unfortunately, as both of Burton Alice Illustrated films, this is really not the case.
Interminably cynical, Burton Alice in Wonderland transforms a beloved adventure so far into a rabbit terrier into a tale of Joan of Arc that sucks all the pleasure of a world of talking cats. The stars Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Johnny Depp offer generally excellent performances, without however marveling the comic strips by adhering to the bitter tone of the film.
Although the costumes and the artistic direction awarded at the Oscars are quite pleasant, Alice in Wonderland remains an excellent example of why some classics are best left alone.
Tim Burton's sequel Alice in Wonderland ranks higher on our list, if only because it doubles its boring qualities with remarkable bravery.
With a vibrant color palette, Alice through the mirror Try to be more than your predecessor – but when you travel and make a strange wink at the sexist medical practices of Victorian England, everything is like being crazy.
If the disappointing box office of the film was due to scandal Around his star Johnny Depp or his generally unbearable nature is hard to say. Anyway, Alice through the mirror was a failure for both Disney and his audience.
Tim Burton takes Dumbo was not as exhausting as his two Alice in Wonderland projects, but he was likewise self-indulgent.
A host of persistent photos of the adorable baby Dumbo moaning for his mother and bursting out big tears the size of an elephant, Dumbo (2019) plays more like an ASPCA campaign from the vaudeville era than a children's movie. As Angie Han from Mashable Note that it is not that the kindness of Dumbo is a problem in itself, but it is often the impression of being abused in a film without having to do anything else.
Yes, some parts of this uneven remake – namely all the schtick of Michael Keaton and Colin Farrell-ness of everything – are quite pleasant. Unfortunately, overall, the project failed to prove that the refurbishment of a 77-year-old classic was worth the effort.
Technically speaking, Christopher Robin is a sequel to Disney's original Winnie the Pooh movies – not a remake of them. But this is the first time that busy residents of Hundred Acre Wood are receiving live action treatment and we are allowing them to feature (albeit a low spot) in our rankings.
A less magical Hook scam Christopher Robin follows the return of an adult Christopher to his fantasies of childhood. Star Ewan McGregor does his best to keep the wobbly story on track, but it's the incomparable Winnie, voiced by Jim Cummings, who steals the show.
Delivering a dazzling dialogue of laughter with nostalgic perfection, Pooh is exactly what you remembered. It's the saving grace of a film that often feels forced – even to the point that we look Christopher Robin again, if only to play another round of "Say what you see".
The beauty and the Beast just try a little too hard.
Featuring the exceptional cast of Emma Watson, this remake of 2017 attempts to tell this "tale of the past" with tons of backstory, new characters, a cast of stars, a kind of genre (not the all) LGBTQ including subplotand a unique rich visual style, unlike any Disney princess movie.
Unfortunately, these many efforts tend to blur the story of Beauty and the Beast rather than elevate it. There are times when the current fantasy is worth the price of entry – namely Watson's staircase appearance in what is a yellow version of the dress worn by Hermione Granger at the Christmas ball . But overall, this is not particularly memorable.
With an operating time greater than two hours, The beauty and the Beast (2017) is undoubtedly more of the story that you come to know and love. But, like Mashable's Angie Han Explainit does not make it more magical.
When images of a nauseating Will Smith blue appeared on the Web in February, we feared the worst. But, as it turns out, Aladdin (2019) is not so bad.
While genius has remained a low point in the final form of the film, the stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott – both found through an international casting search – are breathtaking as Disney's unlikely unlikely couple. Nail each nuance of character with a few definite improvements written for Jasmine of Scott, these two characters go through the film as many traps as they can.
Unfortunately, the under-sought musical numbers in the film prevent the duo from reaching its true grandeur. Reflecting on Aladdinlack of dance numbers worthy of Bollywood, Masa Proma Khosla "It is disappointing to see that, in an attempt to pay tribute to the traditions of oriental dance, Aladdin chose to go on the So you think you can dance and mitigate these forms of art until the West recognizes them already. "
Better than expected, but still not as good as the original, Aladdin is good – but not the Agrabah royalty.
The Lion King is not bad in itself, but it is a struggle to overcome one's fear of failure.
A constantly faithful reconstruction of the masterpiece of 1994, that of Jon Favreau on the Saharian plateau Hamlet s' hangs at its source – offering only the superb photorealistic animation style as justification for its creation.
Yes, the world of digitally rendered Pride Lands is a technical triumph and the voice played by its starred actors is largely enjoyable. But like Mashable's Angie Han written"None of this comes down to anything new or vital, the remake does not deepen our understanding of these characters, this story, this world, significantly."
Without a doubt the most tedious of the films on this list, The Lion King cherishes the kings who preceded him like no other, but fails to win a throne of his own making.
When the time has come for Disney to repeat the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty, They did not just do everything live. Instead, they told the story from the point of view of its iconic villain – a decision that has re-imagined one of Disney's best to date.
Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning play the roles of Maleficent and Aurora, but their characters still stand between them, but for far more complicated reasons than it seemed there. Oozing with style, Maleficent creates a dark world that is similar to the realm seen in the original Sleeping Beautybut with a dark texture and a slippery personality all its own.
Part of the sequel, a remake party, this Disney tour is both enjoyable as a standalone and as an extension of the original animation. And this suite, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil? We could not be more ready for that.
Many advocates of Disney's live-action remake have argued that re-creating classic movies can help introduce older stories to new audiences. Jungle book is the one who actually does that.
Director Jon Favreau has managed to turn one of Disney's least-known commodity products into a high-end selection for 2016 kids, realizing the adventure of the Mowgli jungle in its most cinematic . Telling the story of a child befriending animals in the real world gave him the impression of being both more thoughtful, more terrifying and more adventurous.
Neel Sethi shines in the role of the young hero, while Idris Elba and Bill Murray shine in the role of Shere Khan and Baloo. It took a second to animate all this animal fur, The jungle Book is a new kind of classic
Published in 1956, Dodie Smith's timeless story about fleeing puppies has always been endearing, but Disney's live-action campy remake has made it a full-fledged movie. event.
Featuring the fabulous fabulous Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil, this 101 Dalmatians Transplanting the characters from the original animated feature into a stylish world of London madness. De Vil, now a world-renowned fashionista, tackles every scene with a sinister force, her superb black and white suit almost as iconic as her.
More sensitive to the comic style of the late 90s, this remake is struggling to hold up today while the second half returns to a heavy mess. But Close, whose role as De Vil earned him a Golden Globe nomination, more than makes up for his outstanding line deliveries.
Worth the detour, 101 Dalmatians (1996) is a proof of concept that Disney animated remakes can work.
Narrated and narrated by countless studios and creators, the story of Cinderella's encounter with Prince Charming at the ball is as classic as possible. So it's no wonder this is the only live remake that Disney has managed to do completely.
With Lily James, Cate Blanchett and Richard Madden, Cinderella (2015) honors the masterfully created images of the original film – including an exquisite rendering of this sky blue shirt – while expanding the central plot and characters to make the fantasy more heartfelt.
Fill a fairy tale with real people, Cinderella is all that one can wish for a dream reinvented child. If only he came with glass slippers.
