Sources have confirmed that Disney is developing a lifelike remake of its 1942 animated feature “Bambi.”
Screenwriters And Producer of Movie
Screenwriters Lindsey Beer (“Sierra Burgess Is a Loser”) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (“Captain Marvel”) will write the screenplay of the movie, with Chris and Paul Weitz’s Depth of Field producing the film.
The Bambi movie will use the same photo-realistic CGI employed on Disney’s remakes of “The Lion King” and “The Jungle Book.” The movie will narrate the story of the titular fawn who has a rabbit and skunk friend before coping with the death of his mother at the hands of a hunter.
Emma Stone To Debut To A Movie In Movie
Since 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland,” Disney’s plan of remaking its animated classics as (presumptively) live-action movies has been very lucrative, grossing over $8.2 billion worldwide, and the studio reveals no signs of slowing down. This year will feature “Mulan” from director Niki Caro, and the “101 Dalmatians” prequel “Cruella” with Emma Stone is set to debut in May 2021.
Director Rob Marshall is mounting a live-action story of “The Little Mermaid,” with Melissa McCarthy, Halle Bailey, and Javier Bardem. And sources first reported that Robert Zemeckis is directing a live-action version of “Pinocchio” (also with Depth of Field) and that Marc Webb will helm a live-action tale of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
Other live-action remakes in the works are “Lilo & Stitch” remake with producers Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich; “Peter and Wendy,” based on Disney’s 1953 animated film “Peter Pan,” with writer-director David Lowrey; and a “Hunchback of Notre Dame” remake with playwright David Henry Hwang writing the screenplay, and the music and lyrics will be written by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.
