    This feels like something that would've come out around the time of the live action 101 dalmatians.

    Are Disney re-making Bedknobs & Broomsticks?

    I've seen a poster on Facebook for it with Kate Winslet playing Angela Lansbury's Character & James Mcavoy playing the male lead.

    Complete news to me if they are.

    Safe to say we should also be expecting a Snow White remake soon?

    I don't even know what to say anymore.

    I'm pretty sure they're not. What you saw was probably just some fanart.

    Probably, only this time I assume the dogs will be talking. And they're probably going to have some pop star flavor of the week cover "Bella Notte".

    Hey, you guys think they'll still have the blatantly racist Siamese cat villains in this? :o

    The original is one of my absolute favorite Disney films, and I can't see how they can possible live up to it or make it work in live action.

    Live action remake with humans instead of animals. Rich woman dates a homeless man and the siamese scene will have actual people instead of cats.

    As long as they keep making money, they'll keep churnin' 'em out!

    They're the new direct-to-video sequels.

    I think some make sense. Those that are timeless stories that don't necessarily depend on the animation medium to work. Such as Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, etc. Not all of these end up being great, but you can at least see where it would work in live-action. And then there are the films like Lion King, Lady and the Tramp, Bambi, Fantasia, etc. which either are about animals or exist primarily as art for the animation medium. They make money so they will make money, but they are almost always terrible.

    Lady and the Tramp was one of the more adult Disney films to begin with, so I expect it to be really watered down. It isn't exactly an action-packed adventure for the kids.

    Since 2012 box office gross of original live action Disney produced movies are (exclude the Pirates movies)

    2012: John Carter: 208M
    2012: The Odd Life of Timothy Green: 56M
    2013: The Long Ranger: 260M
    2015: Tomorrowland: 209M

    Not original movies but NOT based on Disney animation classic:
    2013: Oz The Great and Powerful: 493M
    2014: Into the Woods: 213M
    2014: Muppets Most Wanted: 80M
    2016: The BFG: 183M
    2018: A Wrinkle in Time: 250M-350M (guestimate)

    Movies based on Disney animations:
    2014: Maleficent: 759M
    2015: Cinderella: 543M
    2016: Jungle Book: 967M
    2016: Alice Through the Looking Glass: 299M
    2016: Pete's Dragon: 144M
    2017: Beauty and the Beast: 1.26B

    You can clearly see what movies people want to see. Except Alice and Pete's Dragon which underperformed (for obvious reasons), all Disney animation remakes turn in very healthy profit.

    If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

    Oh, I know. Pete's Dragon shouldn't count either as the original was a live-action film anyways (it just had an animated dragon because CGI didn't exist back then). And even though a lot of them were mediocre at best (I think the only one that I would actually call "good" would be The Jungle Book), the properties they chose largely made sense. That's my main issue here. It is a romance film with dogs. It isn't even like 101 Dalmatians where it was a straight adventure/rescue film. These are characters we need to have a real emotional connection too beyond "they're cute." Want to do a live-action Aladdin? Makes perfect sense. Mulan? Go for it. Hunchback? Already a classic live-action film. But Lady and the Tramp?

    Then again Babe worked so maybe they will surprise me.

    Not sure Alice should count as well, since those movies had nothing in common with the cartoon apart from having the same source material. It wasn't a remake the way 'Beauty and the Beast' was.
