Disney

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated.

The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart.

However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a little bit more familiar. They've been making a bunch of live-action remakes of our childhood favorites, and honestly it has been a little bit much.

Sure, The Jungle Book was a stunning example of CGI, but did we really need another version of Cinderella?

Well, whether we want it or not, Disney is insistent on bringing us remake after remake. The thing is, there are a bunch that people know about, but there are a few sneaky ones that they are discussing that you may not have realized were on the table.

For those of you who want to be prepared, check out all the upcoming Disney reboots that you can expect in the coming years.

Aladdin - 2019

This one is pretty well known at this point, and the casting has been a very interesting topic of conversation. It's going to be hard to see anyone try to fill Robin Williams's shoes, but Will Smith will be giving it his all in 2019.

The group seems to be getting along, but who knows what we're in for when the movie comes out next year. I know we were all a little bit surprised when they cast such a gorgeous guy to play Jafar, but I guess they have the right to make whatever artistic changes they want. We'll have to wait to find out!

The Lion King - 2019

The Lion King is easily one of the best Disney movies and the thought of them remaking it has a lot of people nervous, but the cast announcement is at least a little bit intriguing.

James Earl Jones is back as Mufasa because literally no one else should do it, and then with Donald Glover and Beyonce Knowles-Carter as Simba and Nala, there is at least a lot of talent in their corner.

Dumbo - March 29, 2019

Everyone's favorite elephant is coming back, but this time he's getting the Tim Burton treatment. Burton is known for his unique style, but we don't really know much about what he's got planned so far. We do know that Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, and Michael Keaton will be playing parts in the story.

Mulan - 2020

The new version of Mulan will be staring a Chinese actress named Liu Yifei and they are promising to hire Chinese actors for the main roles.

Originally the movie was supposed to come out in 2018, but it was pushed back to March 2020 just earlier this year.

Those are the movies with definitive dates that everyone is aware of, but there are still even more that are coming sometime soon, and we aren't sure how we feel about it...

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of

'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
