Movies Adapted from Cartoons
Seven Disney Cartoons Adapted to Movies
After Cinderella, Snow White or, very recently The Jungle Book, other of our heroes are getting ready to leave the world of animation for a dive into reality. Something to win the hearts of fairy tale fans.
A few months ago, Disney revealed its production schedule for the next four years, more magical than Santa’s hood!. Among this crazy program are many adaptations of the classics of our childhood, from which we discover the first images and extracts.
The Jungle Book
If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s time to rush into the rooms. Mowgli, Bagheera, and Shere Khan are at the head of the Billboard in this version with fantastic scenery. They include Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, and Scarlett Johanssen.
Alice in the Wonderland
We dived with Alice in the White Rabbit Hole. That was six years ago when Alice was adapted in Wonderland by Tim Burton. The director persists and signs a second part, directly inspired by Lewis Carroll’s second book. Once again, we find Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as the candid heroine.
Beauty And The Beast
One of Disney’s most beautiful love stories will also be revisited. Emma Watson will put on the beauty’s sundress, while Dan Stevens, spotted in Downtown Abbey, will play The Beast. Facing them, the hateful Gaston will be performed by Luke Evans. If you want to see pictures of the film, you have to settle for the selfie of the film team. Too unfair!
The wooden puppet who wanted to be a little boy will also return to our dark rooms. While few details have so far filtered through, we know that Ron Howard will be in charge and that Robert Downey Jr. will give up his role as Iron Man to join the adventure.
The Little Mermaid
Prepare to meet Ariel, Polochon, and Sébastien in New Adventures. Chloe Moretz will be the pretty mermaid, madly in love with Prince Eric. We can’t wait to find out who The Wicked Witch Ursula will be.
Peter and Elliot the Dragon
Released in 1977, the story of this little orphan whose friend is a dragon with a power of invisibility, was part of the Disney series mixing cartoon and real actors. While at the time he was following the movements of Mary Poppins and The Sorceress Apprentice, the film this time used 3D to represent Elliott The Dragon and a pretty good cast including Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard.
Cruella de Vil
Glenn Close was frightening and brutal in the 101 Dalmatian film released 20 years ago. In this new version, it will be Emma Stone who will wear the fur coat of the evil dog thief. Given her young age, should we expect a prequel like was evil for Sleeping Beauty? Answer in a few months.
And Disney still offers us a dream by also announcing future Merlin The Enchanter, Prince Charming and Peter Pan. How many more sleepovers before the movies?
