This week’s release of “Mulan” marks the tenth adaptation of a beloved Disney animated film to live-action, a process that began back in 1996 with “101 Dalmatians” but really took off with 2006’s “The Jungle Book.” While many may feel the originals could never be improved on, the resulting reboots have all been major hits and we took a crack at ranking them here. For the purposes of this list, we’re not looking at sequels to adaptations (no “102 Dalmatians”) or retellings (i.e. “Maleficent” or “Christopher Robin”) but straight-up adaptations of the animated classics. All the films and their originals are currently streaming on Disney Plus.
