Robin Hood, remake, Disney+

Just like every other animated film in Disney's catalogue, it seems that ROBIN HOOD is destined to receive a live-action remake. The 1973 original followed the adventures of Robin Hood, Little John, and the inhabitants of Nottingham as they fought against Prince John, with all the characters taking the form of anthropomorphic animals rather than humans.

THR reports that Carlos Lopez Estrada, best known for directing BLINDSPOTTING, is set to direct a live-action/CG hybrid remake of ROBIN HOOD. Just like the original film, the remake will be a musical and once again feature anthropomorphic animals. The project, which is still in the early stages of development, will be written by Kari Granlund (LADY AND THE TRAMP) and will debut on the Disney+ streaming service. It's been a hell of a long time since I last watched ROBIN HOOD, but I do recall enjoying it as a child.

The ROBIN HOOD remake is another in a long line of live-action Disney remakes, which includes THE JUNGLE BOOK, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, DUMBO, ALADDIN, THE LION KING, and more. There are even more live-action remakes just over the horizon, including MULAN, THE LITTLE MERMAID, PINOCCHIO, LILO & STITCH, and much more.
