Several trailers, screengrabs, and clips have been released for a ton of new live-action films and series coming to Disney+ over the next few years.
Let’s take a look at a few of them.
The Mighty Ducks Game Changers: Staring Emilio Estevez and Lauren Graham, this straight to Disney+ series will revisit everyone’s favorite hockey team, District 5 – or as they are better known, The Mighty Ducks. Game Changers will introduce fans to a new hockey team full of characters, much like the team from the ’90s.
Turner & Hooch: Josh Peck (Drake and Josh), will play the role that Tom Hanks made famous in 1989. Other information surrounding the remake has been limited.
Beauty and the Beast: This new series will bring on Josh Gad and Luke Evans to reprise their roles from the live-action Beauty and the Beast film. Alan Menken will contribute to the series musical score, adding a classic Disney touch. The series appears to be centered around prequel storylines to the iconic Disney film.
Swiss Family Robinson: The only information we have about the remake of this Disney film is that it will be directed by Ronald Moore and Jon M. Chu. Swiss Family Robinson will be adapted into a series format.
Hocus Pocus 2: It has long been rumored that Hocus Pocus would be receiving a sequel to the 1993 cult classic, Hocus Pocus. This rumor has finally been confirmed. A “spooky sequel” will be released directly to Disney+ in the coming years. Information surrounding the film is extremely limited.
Three Men and a Baby: Zac Efron will star in Disney’s take on the 1980’s comedy film, Three Men and a Baby. According to Disney they are deep into development and eyeing a 2022 release.
Cheaper by the Dozen: Gabrielle Union will star in the remake of the classic film. This time, the movie will be centered around a multi-racial/blended family dealing with a hectic home and work life.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Disney will revisit the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film (adapted from the best selling book series), in an all-new animated feature.
Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild: This “spin-off” film will follow new faces and some old ones, in an all-new wild adventure. It appears development has already begun on the new Ice Age.
Night at the Museum: Disney will put an animated spin on the Night at the Museum film series. The film franchise often featured stars like Robin Williams, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Dick Van Dyke, it is expected the new Night at the Museum will also be star-studded. Sean Levy, director of the films, will be a producer of the new series.
Jungle Cruise: In 2021, the long-anticipated film, Jungle Cruise, will finally be released. Much like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Jungle Cruise will put an imaginative take on the classic Disney Park attraction. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt will star in the film.
Lion King: The new Lion King is described as a “prequel of sorts” that will revisit some of the film’s iconic characters.
The Little Mermaid: The Little Mermaid is getting the live-action treatment. Although the announcement of this film was not breaking news, we did get a better look at the cast of the film. Names like Daveed Diggs, Halle Bailey, Javier Bardem, and Melissa McCarthy are just a few of the stars on the film’s roster. The Little Mermaid will feature the classic Howard Ashman and Alan Menken tracks from the original film, as well as some new songs from both Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Chip “n” Dale Rescue Rangers: Ah yes, you can hear the catchy theme song already. Andy Samberg and John Mulaney will star opposite each other in this new film, described as a hybrid that is half live-action, half animated feature.
Disenchanted: Disenchanted will be the follow up to Disney’s hit Enchanted. Amy Adams will once again play the role of Giselle.
Sister Act 3: Whoopi Goldberg will complete the Sister Act trilogy after almost 30 years between films 1 and 2. Along with Goldberg, Tyler Perry has also signed on to be a part of the production team.
Cruella: Emma Stone will play Cruella in the new live-action film based on the Disney Villain, Cruella de Vil.
