This movie seems insultingly unnecessary, no matter what they announce or who they cast. I don’t think this concept will translate well to live-action, and there’s no reason to adapt this movie. It’s going to be a Disney+ original release, so I don’t even see the financial incentive. It’s hard to look at projects like this and see anything but hubris and corporate mandates. I haven’t seen anyone happy about this particular remake, and I wonder if the general public (non-fans/cinephiles) are almost ready to turn on them.
