Disney’s newest live action remake, The Sword in the Stone, now has an official production start date. Filming is set to begin in Belfast, Ireland on September 24, 2018. Casting is already underway for roles such as Arthur and the infamous wizard Merlin. Helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has been named director. His previous movies include 28 Weeks Later (2007) and Intacto (2001).
Disney’s recent live action remake of the 1991 classic, Beauty and the Beast, soared past $1 billion while in theaters in 2017. It starred Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. The film brought back the original story as well as hit songs such as Be Our Guest and the famous Beauty and the Beast by Mrs. Potts.
Also recently announced by the Walt Disney Company is that they will begin a streaming service in 2019. All Disney movies will be available through the service, minus any R-rated films such as Deadpool and Alien from the recently acquired 20th Century Fox. While the cost for Disney’s streaming service has yet to be announced, it is expected to be similar in cost to Netflix and Hulu.
Live action remakes of Disney classics have become so popular that there is already a line up of anticipated films. The Lion King, Mulan and Aladdin are just a few that have been confirmed while Lady and the Tramp already has a director, Charlie Bean.
