You're not the only one to have mixed feelings when it comes to movie remakes, but it's going to be hard to ignore some of these classics when they make it on the big screen.

Remakes of Jumanji and Beauty and the Beast have recently hit theaters, and many have applauded the people behind the film for actually doing a good job.

Here are 10 movie remakes we've all been waiting for, and it may have been just worth the wait.

1. Car Wash

The 1976 comedy classic will make an appearance in theaters once Universal finds a writer for the story. Who knows if the whole car wash cast will be as funny as the ones who were cast in the '70s, but all we're hoping for is to hear that hilarious and catchy theme song again.

2. The Chronicles of Narnia

It's been seven years since the most recent installment of the fantasy series, so it's about time!  

Sony and Entertainment One will reboot The Chronicles of Narnia franchise with a whole new cast. The production of Narnia: The Silver Chair is supposed to begin early 2018, with a release date around Christmas 2018.

3. Clue: Presentation Short  

We all do love a good intrigue, especially if it's tied to one of our favorite childhood games.

The 1985 original comedy film is set at a dinner party, where guests who have been given aliases all try to figure out who murdered Mr. Boddy. There's been no announcement of when the film will be released, but we do know that there will be nine guests who must cooperate to solve a murder at a mysterious mansion.

4. The Lion King

The Lion King franchise has always had success, so it's no surprise that Hollywood wants to cash in some more big bucks on the next installment.

Word has it that famous celebrities like Donald Glover, Beyonce, John Oliver, and Seth Rogan have been cast as the movie's voice actors.

Here's a glimpse of the visuals that you'll see in the 2019 remake.

5. Aladdin

One of our favorite princess stories, Aladdin, hit the big screen in 1992 as an animated movie. Our prayers have finally been answered, so we'll be seeing a live-action retelling of the love story between Aladdin and Jasmine in 2019.

Will Smith will play the genie, while Mena Massoud plays Aladdin, and Naomi Scott plays Jasmine.

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
