On the off chance you haven’t noticed, Disney is really big into bringing their animated movies back to the big screen as live action spectaculars. Currently, there are not one, not two, and not even three, but 12 live-action Disney remakes in the pipeline. This is a very exciting time to be alive, because we’re never going to turn down another Disney movie.

We know there’s a live-action Mulan and Little Mermaid coming our way…but what about the likes of Tangled, Hercules, and Princess and the Frog? Currently, Disney hasn’t announced anything about these movies getting a live-action treatment — but there’s a high chance it will happen.

With Beauty and the Beast now on DVD, Blu-ray and HD Digital, HelloGiggles jumped on the phone with Alan Menken, the OG composer for Beauty and the Beast who *also* did the score for the 2017 remake. Now that Beauty and the Beast is over, Menken is hard at work on the upcoming live-action Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and the Enchanted sequel. If there’s someone who knows their Disney animated and live-action movies, it’s him. And he knows what’s happening next.

And could there ever be, let’s say, an animated Beauty and the Beast based off of the live-action version??

So maybe, just maybe, after Disney has finished all 50+ (and counting) live-action remakes, they’ll reverse the process — one day we’ll have an animated Beauty and the Beast based off the live-action movie that’s based off the animated version. Coming Summer 2037!
