In a Hollywood full of sequels, reboots and remakes, animated properties are rife with inspiration for studios.
Disney in particular has been on a roll in taking its animated assets and spinning them into live-action remakes; it’s already released movies like “The Jungle Book” and “Maleficent” to big success, with adaptations of “Beauty and the Beast,” “Mulan,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Dumbo” and more in the works.
Disney’s not the only studio cashing in on animated properties. Even Pokemon are going to go live-action in a Detective Pikachu movie at Legendary, and Universal is working on a new “Curious George,” just to name a few examples.
There are still a few animated movies that have yet to be remade into live-action films. “The Lion King” has already moved to Broadway, so a live-action version isn’t impossible. Or would you rather see a live-action Shrek in all his glory, or be “Spirited Away” in a new style? Weigh in below. Did we forget your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
UPDATE: This poll has been closed, with “The Lion King” taking the top spot.
