These Walt Disney live-action remakes have been coming out since the '90s and all started with 101 Dalmatians. This film and the sequel 102 Dalmatians served as a precursor to the more recent and new Disney remakes such as The Jungle Book (2016) and Cinderella (2015). These films reimagined have attracted big-name celebrities such as Glen Close, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Danny DeVito, Johnny Depp, and Ben Kingsley. There are also several Disney live-action movies slated to be released in the next few years and there is no sign of them stopping anytime soon.

101 Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland, and Maleficent have all spawned sequels due to their initial success at the box office.
