Are you sitting down? (We’re serious!) OK, good. We just got word that The Walt Disney Studios is working on a slew of Disney Live Action films. And we couldn’t be more excited (even more than our kids). It turns out, wishes do come true!
As you probably know, there are two fairy tales in the pipeline, Alice Through the Looking Glass (5/27/16) and Beauty and the Beast (3/17/17), as well as Pete’s Dragon (8/12/16). But there are several other classic stories that we get to look forward to. Here are some of the films that will be dated in the coming weeks and months that are currently in development:
- Cruella with Emma Stone set for the title role and Kelly Marcel writing
- A Wrinkle in Time with Ava DuVernay attached to direct and Jennifer Lee writing
- Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson set to star and John Requa and Glenn Ficarra writing
- Dumbo with director Tim Burton and writer Ehren Kruger
- A sequel to Mary Poppins with director Rob Marshall, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda
- Maleficent 2 with Angelia Jolie set to return in the title role and Linda Woolverton writing
- The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with director Lasse Hallstrom and writer Ashleigh Powell
- The Jungle Book 2 with both director Jon Favreau and writer Justin Marks returning
- A Tinker Bell project with Reese Witherspoon set to star and Victoria Strouse writing
Here’s hoping we get to see all of these on the big screen.
