All the Disney Reboots That Are Currently in the Works

On a scale from 1 to 10, how excited are you?

Following a slew of reboots and live-action remakes emerging these past few months, it’s hard to keep up to date with what Disney is going to be releasing next in theaters. The Lion King, Aladdin and Dumbo recently hit the big screen this summer and needless to say, there has been a mixture of critiques from fans from around the world.

Last July, Disney released a full list of what films and television shows to expect once its streaming platform Disney+ makes its debut on November 12. Since then, the Mickey Mouse company has been announcing more reboots of its classics, including 21st Century Fox’s family flicks like Home Alone and Cheaper by the Dozen.

In the spirit of the year of reboots, we’ve gathered all the Disney movies and series that are currently in the works. Scroll down below to find out what’s in store.

Lady and the Tramp

First debuting in 1955, Lady and the Tramp was the first animated feature filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen film process. This Disney classic will be making its way back on November 12 launching exclusively on Disney+.

Lizzie McGuire

One of the original Disney TV classics Lizzie McGuire is making a comeback following the story of Lizzie in her 30s, working in New York. Hilary Duff had to keep the news to herself for a while, but finally got the go signal and confirmed the news through an Instagram post following the D23 expo announcement.

The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid will soon be joining Disney’s current live-action remakes where Halle Bailey has been cast as the movie’s very own Ariel. The storyline itself will follow the original story telling the tale of a young mermaid who swims away from the ocean to pursue true love and life as a human. The full cast and release date are yet to be announced.

Cruella

101 Dalmatians is the ultimate classic and Disney has decided to reboot the film dubbed Cruella starring Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story will be set in the ’80s and will get a punk revamp. However, expect the film to hit the theaters on May 28, 2021.

Mulan

DISNEY

Disney’s 1998 animation film Mulan is slated to premiere on March 27, 2020 starring Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei as the defiant warrior Hua Mulan and newcomer Yoson An as Mulan’s love interest, Cheng Honghui. Unlike the current live-action remakes, Mulan will not be including musical numbers. In addition, Mulan’s beloved sidekick, the dragon Mushu, will reportedly be replaced by a phoenix in the new adaptation.

The Muppets

Announced during the D23 expo, The Muppets will return to Disney+ in 2020 featuring mysterious celebrity guest stars. The show will debut in a short-form series dubbed Muppets Now.

Home Alone

At the beginning of August, Disney announced the reboot of the ’90s classic Home Alone which is set to premiere on Disney+. Quite a number of fans on Twitter had mixed reviews when the news came out, including the original Kevin McCallister played by Macaulay Culkin.

Cheaper by the Dozen

Fox’s Cheaper By the Dozen has also been acquired by Disney where the media and entertainment company is planning on rebooting the Steve Martin-lead Cheaper By the Dozen (2003) and its sequel, Cheaper By the Dozen 2 (2005). However, it’s highly unlikely that the original cast members like Hilary Duff and Tom Welling will return as their characters in the film.

Night at the Museum

Based on the 1993 children’s book, Ben Stiller‘s Night at the Museum premiered in 2006 where he played Larry Daley – a security night guard for the Museum of Natural History who discovers that the museum’s exhibits come to life when the sun goes down. Disney has not made any announcements yet in regards to the plot, cast or release date of the upcoming reboot.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Also based on the popular children’s book series by Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kid has also been taken on by Disney. However, the company has yet to confirm the details on whether or not they will continue the storyline or start fresh.
