10 Disney Movies That Actually Need A Live-Action Reboot Or Sequel

Although a comparatively more recent film than Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella, Mulan has all the makings of a live action adventure. It revolves around a young Chinese woman who steals her father’s armor and goes off to join the Chinese army battling the invading Huns – in the process she partners with a dragon, gets into shenanigans with male soldiers, and saves China. You could argue that Mulan is practically live action already, but wouldn’t it be cool to see a real kickass heroine on our screens?

Disney are enjoying something of a second renaissance period right now as, with big properties like Marvel and Star Wars in their pocket, they have a guaranteed bunch of hits lined up. Another venture that seems to be a permanent winner for them though is the stream of remakes of old classics that they’re producing.

In the last few years, we’ve had Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, Cinderella and The Jungle Book. And, before the decade is out we will likely see Pete’s Dragon, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo and Genies as well. That’s not to mention how much more sequel-happy they seem to be lately – with Wreck-It-Ralph 2 and Frozen 2 arriving soon, among several others.


But does the world actually need these revamps and follow-ups of movies that were perfectly good to start with? That’s still up for debate, but in the meantime here are ten movies that we would argue really are in need of a reboot or sequel.
