Best Disney Movie RemakesBKAllmighty 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 Ten
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
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
This one was a surprise critical success and received pretty rave reviews when it was released in 2003. - BKAllmighty
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
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
The original 1949 movie was released by RKO Pictures, but since this one is Disney-made it still counts. - BKAllmighty
This 2009 film is a remake of the 1975 film, 'Escape to Witch Mountain' and stars Dwayne Johnson. - BKAllmighty
As you probably know the 2014 film is a spin-off / remake of Sleeping Beauty (1959). - BKAllmighty
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
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
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
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.
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
Yes, this is technically a sequel to a remake but I think it should still, more or less, count. - BKAllmighty
