“Robin Hood” Is Getting A Live-action Remake At Disney
Disney is remaking a live-action of it’s 1973 animated musical comedy “Robin Hood”.
Disney announced that it is in the early production of a new version of “Robin Hood” which is being developed with the animals in a CGI/live-action hybrid format, similar to Disney remakes of “The Jungle Book” and “Dumbo”, the New York Post reports.
“Blindspotting” director Carlos Lopez Estrada is on board to helm the film. Kari Granlund, who wrote the script for 2019’s Disney Plus reboot of “Lady and the Tramp,” is attached to pen the new “Robin Hood.” Justin Springer, whose Disney credits include “Dumbo” and “Tron: Legacy,” is producing the film.
The 1973 animation – produced and directed by Wolfgang Reitherman – follows the adventures of Robin Hood (portrayed as a fox), Little John, and the inhabitants of Nottingham as they fight against the excessive taxation of Prince John, and Robin Hood wins the hand of Maid Marian.
The remake will be released exclusively on Disney+, although no release date has been announced.
