I’d prefer if we didn’t have either.
Ive said this before, but Brother Bear would have been a fine movie.. if it came out in the 80s.
By the time it was made, the whole "jerkass gets turned into another creature until they learn to be good" had already been done by Disney (twice!)
Yeah, that news about a Pocahontas remake ain't too flash.
Disney can do bloody better than that.
Pocahontas already have a better remake that fixed most of the problem of the original, it called Moana.
Within the last 5 years to boot.
As a bit of irony, he was also voiced by a real life douchebag. So, got to give them a minimum accuracy credit.
Anyone like a remake but not the original film? Maleficent doesn't count since it's not a remake.
I'm watching the Aladdin remake and it's not doing much for me, but I didn't like the original either. I like the characters, art design, the spinoff cartoon, etc but the film itself never interested me.
I like the live action Jungle Book a lot more than the animated Jungle Book, which loved to meander about with filler.
The 2016 Jungle Book was a remake that added a lot of its own original content and twists, while spiritually having a lot more in common with the book than the original animated film did. It had its own identity, and a good one at that, which is why the case can be made that it's a remake that surpasses the original.
Though it's probably more of a reboot than a remake.
It's honestly a counterpoint example of why the later Disney remakes just go off the rails. Too much copying the original, often to an inferior degree, and not enough creativity or improvement.

The weakest points of the 2016 Jungle Book remake were when they tried to pander to nostalgia. The new "I Wanna Be Like You", while still a great song on its own right, is completely at odds with the rest of the movie's tone. With the remakes that came after, they went more and more towards the "pandering to nostalgia".
With The Jungle Book, the source material itself has had so many different adaptations that it helps they could go in a different direction while just leaving hints of the original. And both the animated movie and source material were rather episodic from the start.
Since then most of the remakes have been near one-to-one, replicating about 75% of the original script and hitting most of the same classic images. By the time of The Lion King it's basically the same movie.
I still kinda like Dumbo even for all its faults, because it tried to be more than what the original was and had a charm all on its own, even if it got a bit long-winded in the teeth towards the end.
I do think carbon copies of old films don't really count and shouldn't really count as a 'remake.'
Be warned, here be monsters.
Can we stop please posting news from that site? We’ve already gone over repeatedly how less-than-credible it is.

Holy cow, you're Darkflamewolf.
I just want to say that I'm a big fan of your fic "Death Becomes You", and that you might know me as Transformers 0 on FF.net.
I was the one who made the suggestions to you about Mai's age and how she should behave for a child her age.

They'd never consider that. The film that destroyed their 2D department and shuttered development on all the other animated films they had in development? What is considered by exactly NO ONE to be a good film? No.
Misconception. Home on the Range didn't kill traditional 2D animation.
For claiming that no one likes it, I would like to cite some parts of the Trivia and YMMV pages of this film.
Under Creator Backlash:
Oh, Hey! Nice to meet you here too, Transformer! :D
Yeah, that be me. I'm...a bit stalled on the story since I'm focusing on other projects, but that's a discussion for another time on another thread, but if you want to continue the conversation, feel free to DM me.
One person adding a trope saying the movie was "vindicated" because maybe 30 people like it does not equal an undoing of all its colossal negative reception.
Something carries the blame for a problem just for the fact they appeared before it happened.That is how the world works:'(
There is a quote by Bruce Lee that in mysums what up a good live action remake should be : Take what is good, discard what is useless and add what is uniquely yours

I had no idea the directors of Home on the Range saw Doug Walker's review. Would have been interesting to see his reaction to their emails.
“emailed him more or less saying that if he ever saw him, things could get physically ugly. ”
At this point, who doesn’t want to beat the shit out of Doug Walker?
Why don't you go personally to IMDb, Amazon or other sites to see the user reviews (I know some reviews are suspicious, but at least see them)? And the colossal negative reception is mostly from the fans of the Disney Animated Canon, not from absolutely every single living human in the world.
Again, I am trying to be as neutral as possible, not defending a movie I never watched, and just trying to present facts.
I am sorry if I offend anyone and if I sound in this post like I'm defending Home on the Range.

Disney was also shifting away from 2D before Home on the Range was even completed because of films like Atlantis underperforming. Obviously, the real problem at the time wasn't the medium, because Chicken Little was 3D and sucked more.
What does the entire population of the world have to do with what was previously said. Is it impossible to judge Home on the Range until literally every human has seen it?
'The negativity only came from fans of the Disney Animated Canon'. So, the movie's target demographic.
Fans of the Disney Animated Canon aren't the only primary target demographic. Primarly kids, but also their parents, too, were the main target demographic. To me, it's like saying the bronies are the real target demographic of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (even though it's rated TV-Y, and the intended demo is for girls and their parents).
And you're right about that:
Shall we end this conversation about Home in the Range? I think I've just made it awkward...
And I'm sorry for sounding too harsh to you all and too defensive to Home in the Range.
