This list does not include remakes of live-action/animation hybrid films (such as Pete's Dragon), animated movies that were produced by another studio and later reimagined into live-action films by Disney, live-action films another studio made based on the same story as a Disney feature that were later acquired (such as Fox’s as Ever After or Pathé‘s as The Wind in the Willows/Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride), the direct to video release The Jungle Book: Mowgli’s Story, or animated television shows (such as Kim Possible).

Planned projects[edit]

Disney announced a sequel to the film The Jungle Book[48] which will feature elements of Bill Peet's rejected material for the 1967 film.[49]

A live-action adaptation of Peter Pan is also in the works,[50] which is set to be released in Disney+.[51] A live-action film about Tinker Bell also is in the works.[52]

Two live-action projects of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs have been announced, one based on the eponymous animation film, and other on the tale Snow-White and Rose-Red.[53][54][55] Also an untitled Chronicles of Prydain film (previously Disney adapted the stories in the animated film The Black Cauldron) has been announced.[56][57]

Also, a live-action spin-off of Prince Charming, called Charming is in development with Stephen Chbosky writing and possibly directing.[58]
