I don’t think that’s the case. A lot of the stories Disney made movies based on are all in the public domain at this point. Hence the various films about Pinocchio, Snow White, etc are all being made.I thought that the reason Disney was doing all these live action versions was so that they could retain the rights to the material?

Case in point, as of right now, Mickey Mouse is set to enter the public domain in 2024… but only the form of him that existed when he was first seen in Steamboat Willie. Other forms since don’t and I’m sure Disney would pull up some Trademark rules/laws that cover them for many years to come. This is what most companies do to keep things from ending. Marvel does it with various characters every few years. Winnie the Pooh just entered the public domain but only the original book version. Using anything that Disney added to him, would possibly be a violation of a trademark.

I feel like this question is safer to ask here than the General Games discussion thread. But, has anyone played Disney Dreamlight Valley yet? Should I get it? What do we think? I know it's in early access/beta or whatever but it looks cute.
As a big fan of the original, I love The Lion King remake (and will tell anyone who will listen). But would also be here for some lesser known titles. It would be interesting to see what they could do with a Black Cauldron remake. The original is one of my favourites, and done right it could be amazing. And scary!I'd be more invested in live action remakes if Disney did them for more lesser known entries in their catalogue. I get them starting off with movies like Cinderella and Beauty & The Beast, but did anyone really need a "live action" Lion King with CGI animals or a live action Dumbo?
Waiting for Atlantis to be remade honestly. Maybe even The Princess & The Frog or The Emperor's new Groove, although Yzma is forever associated with Ertha Kitt.
