I am fed up with the live action remakes and agree with the sentiment that Disney should stop but at the same time I can’t help but think, have Disney ever been known for great live action movies?
I can only think of Hocus Pocus and Enchanted as films I would say I love, I really can’t think of any others… I guess for a time I would have said some of the Pirates of the Carribean but that’s really it.
My point is we’re not really missing anything by Disney focusing the more creative ideas in animation format and bigger picture Disney is essentially creating live action movies which are better (in some cases) through Marvel, Star Wars and (maybe) Avatar.
There isn’t an endless pot of money to invest in making live action movies or enough time in the year to release them without putting them into direct competition with something else under the Disney umbrella. These movies are a quick cash grab aimed at bringing in new kids to these existing properties, they’re not for me.
