If there’s one great thing we can look forward to in the coming years, it’s a whole slew of live-action remakes courtesy of Disney. Beginning with the live-action remakes of The Lion King, Dumbo and Aladdin already in production, Disney is looking to bring some fresh ideas to some of its classic films. Among the many films getting the live-action treatment, fans can look forward to seeing fresh retellings of The Little Mermaid, The Sword in the Stone and Pinocchio. Disney is also retelling classic stories through the eyes of different characters, like Tinker Bell and Cruella. It’s definitely an exciting time to be a Disney fan.
However, many of these live-action remakes have yet to cast either lead characters or supporting characters. Considering the long road traveled by the Aladdin casting team before they landed on lead actors Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott (who will be playing Aladdin and Jasmine, respectively), it seems like we should preemptively suggest some great actors who would make excellent casting choices for the other planned Disney remakes.
And so, in light of this, here are our dream casting choices for all of the live-action remakes Disney has planned.
