Continuing with Disney’s trend of remaking their beloved animated classics, from The Lion King to the upcoming Mulan, Robin Hood is next in line to be developed using live-action and CGI.
Robin Hood tells the classic legend of an outlaw who steals from the rich to give back to the struggling poor in Medieval England. The original animated Disney musical portrayed the characters as a whole host of anthropomorphic animals, with both Robin Hood and his love interest Maid Marian being foxes.
The movie is being developed for Disney+, similarly to the recent Lady and the Tramp remake, and will be written by the same screenwriter, Kari Granlund. It is set to be directed by Blindspotting’s Carlos Lopez Estrada and produced by Justin Springer, who also produced the recent Dumbo remake.
The animated Robin Hood is currently available to watch on Disney+.
