    I like Disney films, but very rarely would I go to the cinema to watch one, I tend to wait until they come up on Sky and even then I'm still behind on some of the more recent live-action movies.

    This one, however, I'm definitely going to see at the cinema and oddly enough, the last time I went to see one was in 1995 and I saw original twice that year.

    Has anyone seen Jungle Book 2016?
    Netflix will release Mowgli two weeks from now, apparently it's not a remake of the Disney version (and they had already started the Mowgli project before Disney released its own remake).

    I'd love to see live action remakes of The Little Mermaid and Sleeping Beauty (with a real devilish Maleficent, not the sexy Hollywood version with botox lips)

    I was indifferent to the original animated versions and I wasn't a fan of the West End stage show when I saw it a few years ago, however, I'm looking forward to seeing this version.

    Isn't there a live action version of Disney's The Little Mermaid in the works? Probably my favourite Disney animation film of all time.

    I haven't seen a live-action remake I didn't find enjoyable (yet). I hope TLK is as cute as it looks in the trailer! I really liked the TJB so I'm hopeful.

    I'm not very optimistic about the Aladdin 2019 remake.
    The trailer doesn't look more spectacular than the animated movie.

    Maleficent was of course the worst of the worst. I think it's my most-hated movie of all time.

    I'm not very attached to Aladdin, in the sense that I only watched it once or twice as a child so I don't remember it very well. I saw the trailer and I quite liked it, but I'm not bothered to the point that I'll pay money to watch it. As for Maleficent, I haven't actually watched it yet; I've seen a few scenes here and there, like the one where she loses her wings, but not the whole film.

    If this is another film where realistic looking animals move their mouths to speak like humans then NO THANKS! That just annoys me.

    Why can no movie have animals THINKING their message while looking at the other animal or person? Why must they always move their mouths? It looks so dumb.
