Disney May Be Making Live-Action Remake of ‘Princess and the Frog’ According to WeGotThisCovered.com, Disney is looking to create a live-action remake of the Disney Princess film, Princess and the Frog.
Disney has been met with both praise and criticism from fans for its decision to keep producing “live-action remakes” of the Disney Classics. But with films such as Aladdin (2019) and The Lion King (2019) both reaching over $1 billion in the global box office, it is unlikely Disney will stop the trend any time in the near future.
For Disney Fans who may not be familiar with the 2009 Disney Princess movie, here is a film synopsis of Princess and the Frog: “Hardworking and ambitious, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) dreams of one day opening the finest restaurant in New Orleans. Her dream takes a slight detour when she meets Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos), who has been turned into an amphibian by evil Dr. Facilier. Mistaking her for a princess and hoping to break the spell, Naveen plants a kiss on poor Tiana — thereby turning her into a frog as well. The pair hop along on an adventure through the bayous to seek the help of a powerful voodoo priestess.”
For now, the film is nearly in the concept stage and has not been assigned a director, writer, or theatrical release date. If the film does not make it to the big screen we could still see a live-action Princess and the Frog come to Disney+, the new streaming service for all things Disney launching November 12, 2019.
