Disney’s remake of Robin Hood animated movie

12 Apr

After introducing live-action formats to classics such as ‘The Lion King’, ‘Aladdin’ and the latest ‘Mulan’, Disney is working on remaking the 1973’s classic animated film ‘Roin Hood’ for its streaming platform Disney Plus.

The remake version of ‘Robin Hood’ will be helmed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, who is known for working on ‘Bindspotting’. According to Hollywood Reporter, the new film is to be a musical and will include anthropomorphic characters in a live-action/CG hybrid format.

The deal was reportedly sealed before the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and the project is in its early development, according to reports.

However, the news regarding the remix of the classic hasn’t been well received by fans, who are asking Disney to “reconsider” its options as there can never be a “good live-action ‘Robin Hood’ movie.”

And some, terming it disrespectful to the original, wrote, “This is particularly insulting because we already have a perfect ‘Robin Hood’ movie with Errol Flynn. No one’s been able to top that. I’m assuming that this will be a mocap movie with real sets and locations. What else could Disney do to justify calling it ‘live-action’?”

One fan, who is of an opinion that Disney always takes good classic movies and turns it bad, said, “Bad idea. ‘Robin Hood’ has been remade COUNTLESS times. Why can’t corporations just leave the classics alone? I know it’s for a generation but more often than not, they find a way to screw the classics up.”

Meanwhile, another agitated fan added, “Unpopular opinion but Disney’s ‘Robin Hood’ is a masterpiece all on its own, and shouldn’t be tampered or remade. Disney, please consider your options.”

Similar to the original, the remake version is said to portray the Sherwood Forest warrior as a fox and Little John as a black bear, Friar Tuck as a badger, the wolf as the sheriff of Nottingham and Maid Marian as a vixen.

However, fans have expressed disappointment in Disney for not coming up with something new.

“What is wrong with Disney? No one likes the remakes- spoils the original. I’d be sacking my story writers – just come up with something new already. ‘Robin Hood’ is one of my all-time faves, I can still recite it word for word,” lamented one Twitter user.

    Oo de Lally! Oo de Lally!

    Maid Marian made a vixen by the House of Mouse?! I hope/suppose they don’t mean in the typical sense of the word, as a shrew! But, rather, as a foxy female fox!
