Classic Disney Movie Remakes – Yay Or Nay?

Lately, Disney has been following a new trend of re-making animated Disney classics into live action films

Recently, films such as Aladdin, Dumbo & The Lion King have been re-released as live action films, and over the past few years we have seen The Jungle Book as well as Beauty And The Beast be re-done as well. And slated to be re-made are The Little Mermaid, Lady & The Tramp, Fox & The Hound, and the list goes on

The remakes have been doing well in theaters, as Disney has a VERY loyal fan base – anything Disney is always popular, and always makes a TON of money.

That being said, I have to say – I am NOT a fan of these remakes – at all. They are boring, lifeless, and lose all the magic that the originals carried with them. Maybe it’s just me, and maybe the magic is all in my head – since the original Lion King and Aladdin are ones I remember seeing in theaters as a kid (and then re-watching over and over again on VHS!), and so for movies like those – no remake can compare.

My son recently watched the animated Aladdin, and loved it – the Genie was a favorite, as was Abu – and when I asked him if he wanted to watch the live action version and showed him the trailer of it online, he was very adamant that he did NOT want to watch the remake. I don’t blame him – I don’t want to watch it either #sorrynotsorry

But – I would LOVE to hear what YOU think – are these remakes worth a trip to the movie theater? Or is Disney just trying to make money off of the nostalgia factor?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Beauty And The Beast’s Live Action Remake Hits Theaters TODAY!

When Disney released the animated classic Beauty And The Beast back in 1991 (almost 26 years ago now!), they probably had no idea just how much of a true “classic” it would become. It made millions at the box office, and even won two Oscars (and was the first ever animated film to be nominated for Best Picture, too!)

I remember watching the VHS of this over and over and over (and listening to the soundtrack cassette tape over and over too!) – so the fact that Disney’s live action remake is releasing into theaters today has me more than just a little excited! Check out what’s in store for you when you head to the theater to see it:

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Year, New Resolutions!

HAPPY 2015! Can’t believe Christmas is over and it’s a whole new year already! I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to take on 2015 and all the challenges and good times it is sure to bring! I like to make New Year’s Resolutions, and I have come up with some for this year:

Introducing my baby boy to the world of Disney, starting with these:

TGIF NY 1

Yeah, that’s right – Disney Videos! Actual VHS tapes of basically all the classics, and not only will this introduce him to Walt’s classics, but it will also teach him what a VCR is (something he otherwise would never have known, because who uses those anymore anyway? Well, me, duh!)

TGIF NY 2

Aside from videos, it’s also never too early to teach him about the Disney Parks too – he will need a full education on what it’s like to visit the happiest place on earth, and I hereby resolve to start that education ASAP!

TGIF NY 3

Another one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to cook more and to try new recipes. Lucky for me, Disney can help me out with that, with their assortment of cookbooks that contain recipes from the Disney Parks and Resorts!

My last resolution is the most important to me – and that is to spend as much time as I can with my family and get to watch my baby grow into a little boy – they grow up fast, and I won’t be missing a single minute of it. Before I know it, he will be tall enough to go on all the Rides at Walt Disney World! I can’t wait to take him – but for now, I will focus on enjoying this stage of his life and helping him learn and grow

What about you – do you make any New Years Resolutions? Are they Disney related?

TGIF and Happy New Year to all!
