Add another Disney classic to the list of upcoming remakes. Following in the footsteps of The Lion King, Dumbo, and Lady and the Tramp, the 1973 animated film Robin Hood will be getting a live-action/CG update, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The remake — led by Blindspotting director Carlos López Estrada and Lady and the Tramp (2019) writer Kari Granlund — is still in early development, but it is expected to be a musical like Disney's original. Robin Hood features a cast of cartoon animals — Robin Hood is a fox, Little John is a bear, Prince John is a lion, and Friar Tuck is a badger — and we expect the reboot will follow suit. There are plenty of details still unknown about next steps, but we're excited to return to Nottingham soon!
