Get ready for complete and total movie joy! There are more than a few Disney movies getting live-action remakes in the next few years. And yes, you’ll want to see some of your own childhood faves just as much as your kiddos will. So which Disney delights are we going to see jump from animation to IRL? Check out the must-see live-action flicks that are coming to theaters soonish.

Christopher Robin

With an August 3, 2018 release date, Christopher Robin is almost here! The classic Pooh tale is coming to life with Ewan McGregor as an all-grown-up Christopher Robin.



You’ll have to wait a year for Dumbo to drop. The live-action remake of this consummate classic is coming to theaters March 29, 2019. The Tim Burton-directed (yes you read that right—Tim Burton is directing Dumbo) film will start Eva Green, Colin Farrell and Michael Keaton.


Yet another (sigh) year wait for this live-action reboot. But the wait will be sooooo worth it. Aladdin’s release date is set for May 24, 2019, with a cast that includes Will Smith!

The Lion King

It looks like 2019 is the THE year for Disney to go live with their reboots. The Lion King is coming to theaters July 19, 2019. And this feature film couldn’t have a better cast—Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Seth Rogan, Alfre Woodard, Keegan-Michael Key, Billy Eichner, James Earl Jones and John Oliver.


The live-action remake of Mulan is set for a 2020 release date. Directed by Niki Caro (what also made, McFarland USA, The Zookeeper’s Wife and Whale Rider), Chinese actress Liu Yifei will take on the title role.
