Best Disney Live-Action Remakes

The Top Ten

1 Cinderella

If there was any proof that Lily James is a modern day Julie Christie, this was it.

Captured the heart and spirit of the animated film beautifully.

The trailer music is BEAUTIFUL and the animation is GORGEOUS and the acting is GREAT

( a billion years later and I’m still talking about this)

Beautiful - Margarida

2 The Jungle Book

This is the best no doubt.

This one was trash get it off the list - myusernameisthis

One of the three good ones - iliekpiez

3 Beauty and the Beast

As with my previous comment, I liked the remake of Beauty and the Beast for the most part. It was entertaining to see Josh Gad perform his rendition of Gaston's song. - Synchronocity

Amazing - Margarida

Best of all

4 Maleficent

Not exactly a remake. Just a story retold from a different point of view with a twist at the end from the 1959 movie. Still a good movie though. - 23windomt

5 101 Dalmatians

I keep forgetting this was a remake - 23windomt

6 Alice in Wonderland (2010)

This isn't really a remake to be honest. It just continued the story from the 1951 movie. Still good though. - 23windomt

Given that the success of this gave birth to the live action Cinderella among others, I'm surprised this ain't number one.

7 Aladdin

Honestly, this is the only live-action remake I like. Beauty and the Beast(2017) was god awful. Lion king(2019) sucked. Cinderella was boring and all of the other ones are either bad or bland. This one had personality. I liked the acting a lot(aside from Jafar's ). The new songs are pretty great. The effects were bad but Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud's acting made up for a lot of it. SO yeah, 9/10 for disney live-action remake standards and 6/10 for just disney standards. - girly-dog-girl

Will Smith is funny in this one.

8 Pete's Dragon (2016)

So much better than original - iliekpiez

Very good and heartwarming! - myusernameisthis

9 The Parent Trap (1998)

This one is pretty good. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

10 Christopher Robin

Not even a remake - 23windomt

The Contenders

11 The Lion King (2019)

Uh this was good - LuckyLeftist

This gets to much hate smh. - AwesomeJawson

12 The Jungle Book (1994)
13 Freaky Friday (2003)

They made this movie 4 times. First in 1976, Then in 1995, Then in 2003, and again in 2018 - 23windomt

This was pretty good - iliekpiez

14 Dumbo

I know a lot of people hate this movie, but I find it okay. It's not good, but it's not bad either. It may be disappointing, but at least it's better than Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent and the Lion King. I guess the only thing wonderful in it is the ending, in my opinion I think it's one of the most perfect endings in film history. That's what makes this movie better than the original.

15 Mulan
16 The Little Mermaid
17 Flubber

Anything with Robin is amazing - disneyprincess

BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY - myusernameisthis

18 Lady and the Tramp (2019)
19 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
20 Race to Witch Mountain (2009)
21 102 Dalmatians
22 Alice Through the Looking Glass

It's not good, but at least it's better than I expected.
