Report: China planning to make Disney’s “Mulan” a live action movie…

The China FIlm Group is partnering with Xinhua Media Entertainment to adapt Disney’s animated film “Mulan” into a live action movie. The companies have already found a director to make “Mulan” a live action film but they will announce who the director will be at AFM.

The animated version of “Mulan” were meant for children and people of all ages, the film makers plan to make a live action more adult oriented. Look like it maybe filmed in China, but the live action “Mulan” could possibly get a world wide release.

Interesting.

I have seen the Disney version of “Mulan” before and it’s actually very good.

I like some Disney animated movies, not a lot but I do like a few.

Like “Snow White”, “Pinocchio”, “Cinderella”, “Bambi”, etc. I mostly like the older Disney animated flicks, the newer ones I don’t really care for.

Report: Hi Ho Silver…The Lone Ranger coming back to the big screen…

Screenwriters Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio who were writers from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films is in final negotiations with Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer in bringing the famous “The Lone Ranger” back to the big screen.

“The Lone Ranger” first began as a radioshow back in the 1930’s, the popularity of “The Ranger” led to movies, TV shows, cartoons, comics, toys, and more.

The character once hit the big screen in 1981 in a movie titled “The Legend of the Lone Ranger” starring Klinton Spilsbury as the Ranger but the movie failed big time in the box office. In 2003, a TV movie of the Lone Ranger was aired but that failed in the TV ratings as well.

I’m sure Disney will do a great job so America can care about the character again. It’s Disney, those people don’t mess around.

As long as they don’t get Antonio Banderas as the Lone Ranger in the new film, I’ll go see it.
