The Aristocats Get the Live-Action Treatment at Disney

The Aristocats are the latest Disney characters to get the live-action treatment, Deadline reports.

The original animated film was released in 1970 and followed a family of Parisian cats whose wealthy owner plans to leave them his fortune – his jealous butler kidnaps the cats and abandons them in the countryside, where they form an unlikely alliance with a alley cat to help them get home before it’s too late.

Will Gluck and Keith Bunin will write the script for the remake – Gluck directed Peter Rabbit and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, while Bunin wrote the script for the 2020 Pixar film Onward.

Not much is known about the film yet as it’s still in the early stages of development, but Deadline reports that it will have a similar look to 2019’s remake of Lady and the Tramp on Disney Plus. It has not yet been confirmed whether the film will be released theatrically or via streaming.

There’s no shortage of live-action Disney remakes – a live-action Snow White movie is also in the works, starring Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot, and a live-action version of The Little Mermaid is also on its way to our screens, starring Halle Bailey. playing Ariel. There’s also a live-action version of Pinocchio starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto and Peter Pan & Wendy from The Green Knight director David Lowery.
