Disney remaking Robin Hood Live for Disney+
Disney has been taking up projects where it has been remaking most of its classics in the past couple of years. Disney already remade and released Beauty and The Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. It is now about to release Mulan and The Little Mermaid in the coming future.
But recently, it was found out that another very old Disney classic is getting a modern remake, yes 1973s Robin Hood. It will be reportedly remade as a live-action so it can be streamed on Disney+.
Hollywood Reporter reports the movie will be directed by Carlos López Estrada. He also directed Blindspotting in 2018. And he is also very popular in the music industry. Estrada directs music videos for Billie Eilish and George Ezra.
About modern Robin Hood
This live-action remake will be written by Kari Granlund. Kari is famous for bringing life back into cartoon characters. Most recent achievements were Lady And The Lamp.
And guess who will be producing this epic Robin Hood movie? Justin Springer! Yes, the famous Disney producer. His most recent production being Dumbo and Tron: Legacy.
It is believed that the new remake will stick to its original theme and storyline. Characters will be sought to remain as pure as possible to their original form. The same musical theme is believed to be followed in the live-action too. But, instead of hand-drawn animation, CGI hybrids will most likely be used.
This new project receives confirmation just before coronavirus pandemic broke out. And the whole world has gone into quarantine since then. So, as of now, there are no confirmed dates as to when production will begin and when the movie might release. It will possibly be a while until we receive any such confirmations.
So hang in there and let’s get through the pandemic first safe and healthy!
