Best Disney Movie Remakes

BKAllmighty
Disney has recently made it a big part of their agenda to remake some of their biggest classics. Why? Who knows? Probably money. Anyways, these things keep getting made and people keep paying to see them. This list compiles the best live action remakes produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

The Top TenXW

1Cinderella (2015)

The newest addition (as of March 2015, anyways) also happens to be the best one yet (In my opinion, of course). It seems Disney still has the magic. - BKAllmighty

2101 Dalmatians (1996)

The first real remake attempt by Disney turned out to be a pretty memorable movie in its own right. Casting Glenn Close as Cruella de Ville couldn't have been a better decision. - BKAllmighty

3Freaky Friday (2003)

This one was a surprise critical success and received pretty rave reviews when it was released in 2003. - BKAllmighty

4My Favorite Martian (1999)

My Favorite Martian is one of my favorite movies as a kid. It hold up as a pretty entertaining movie to this day, I'll tell you. - BKAllmighty

5The Parent Trap (1998)

Before Lindsay Lohan became the hot mess she is now, she was the cute pair of twins from this charming remake. The original movie was released in 1961. - BKAllmighty

6Mighty Joe Young (1998)

The original 1949 movie was released by RKO Pictures, but since this one is Disney-made it still counts. - BKAllmighty

7Race to Witch Mountain

This 2009 film is a remake of the 1975 film, 'Escape to Witch Mountain' and stars Dwayne Johnson. - BKAllmighty

8Maleficent

As you probably know the 2014 film is a spin-off / remake of Sleeping Beauty (1959). - BKAllmighty

9Alice in Wonderland (2010)

Not so much a remake, more an adaptation, much in the same way that Disney's A Christmas Carol is an adaptation not a remake.

It's not entirely a remake of the original 1951 animated film but it does essentially act as one. - BKAllmighty

10Inspector Gadget (1999)

This movie sucked. It got negative reviews, it followed basically nothing from the cartoon, and the worst part is, YOU CAN SEE DR. CLAW'S FACE THROUGHOUT THE MOVIE! Inspector Gadget's name isn't even Inspector Gadget (it's John Brown), and Penny literally does nothing. I'm a fan of the 1983 cartoon and I decided to maybe give it a try. BAD IDEA. Wait, here's my favorite part: Don Adams (the original voice of Inspector Gadget) was in this movie, but get this; they cast him as Brain and gave him one line. I'm not kidding. ONE LINE.

I may not remember much about the movie itself, but I remember that McDonald's had some SWEET Inspector Gadget toys! - higgsboson2142

I had quite a fondness for this movie as a child. It's a remake of the animated television show from the 1980's. - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11Flubber

This 1997 comedy film starring the late Robin Williams (R.I.P. , sweet friend) is a remake of the 1961 film 'The Absent-Minded Professor'. - BKAllmighty

12Angels in the Outfield
13Disney's A Christmas Carol

Believe it or not this motion capture digimation is Disney's third involvment in a film adaptation of A Christmas Carol following Mickey's Christmas Carol and Muppet Christmas Carol.

14The Jungle Book (2016)

Depends on what you mean by remake. This is actually the 3rd film adaptation of The Jungle Book

It's been remade twice, yes. This still counts as a remake, I assure you. - BKAllmighty

15102 Dalmatians

Yes, this is technically a sequel to a remake but I think it should still, more or less, count. - BKAllmighty

16Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
17Pete's Dragon (2016)
