With the success of live-action remake of The Jungle Book, Aladdin, and The Lion King, Disney studio has more remakes on the horizon. This time it's Bambi (authored by Felix Salten) and Pinocchio(authored by Carlo Collodi)'s turn to take suit. Bambi will follow the similar animation as The Jungle Book and The Lion King. Chris Weltz, Paul Weltz, and Andrew Miano ( Depth of Field production) will produce the project. Writing the script are Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. No director has been announced yet for Bambi.
Pinocchio is next as well. This project will be similar to the live-action remake of Aladdin which had live-action performances and real-world sets that interact with digitally invented characters. Tom Hanks is currently in talks to play Geppetto. Robert Zemeckis, an Oscar-winning filmmaker, will direct and co-write the feature.

Mr. Chris Rock and Stanley Tucci have been added to the casts of The Witches. Previously, I reported on this blog about the casting of Ms. Anne Hathaway as The Grand Witch and Ms. Octavia Spencer as Bruno's grandmother. The new take to author Roald Dahl's story is currently in production and would probably be release on October 16, 2020.
The screenwriters of this project are Ms. Kenya Barris, Mr. Robert Zemeckis, and Mr. Guillermo del Toro. Mr. Robert Zemeckis will direct it. Not much has been said about the project, but so far the setting will take place in late 1960s and in rural Alabama rather than in England.
