2017 Disney Movies (By Date)
Will continue the story of the global sensation High School Musical — and introduce new East High Wildcats and their cross-town school rivals, the West High Knights.
The take on the project is being kept deep in Pixie Hollow, but insiders say it will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative. It is also being developed in the vein of Maleficent, Disney’s 2014 hit that starred Angelina Jolie as the evil witch from Sleeping Beauty. Like Maleficent, this Tinker Bell tale is conceived as “the story you don’t know” and will offer a new perspective on the character.
Disney is planning a reboot of their beloved franchise which may or may not include the return of Anne Hathaway as Princess Mia Thermopolis who rules over the fictional Kingdom of Genovia.
Plot details of the remake are being kept under wraps, but the original centered on a Reno lounge singer (Goldberg) who goes into protective custody at a San Francisco convent and pretends to be a nun after a mob boss puts a hit on her.
The focus will be Christopher Robin as an adult, which brings him back to A.A. Milne’s famous bear and the Hundred Acre Wood.
A revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk tale that is based on a detailed outline by Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan.
