Many Disney Movies Have Been Getting The Live-Action Treatment.
Some of these might have been good, and some of them might have been not so good. Beauty and the Beast garnered over $1 billion at the global box office. So, Disney obviously knows that live-action treatment for many of their movies can be very successful.
They are not going to run out of movies anytime soon. However, there are many live-action movies still in development. The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Winnie The Pooh and Mulan are just some of them. Maleficent and Jungle Book are also getting sequels.
Many of our readers might have their own list of what Disney movies they want turning into Live-action. But, we think the following films should definitely get the Hollywood treatment.
#1 Rescuers Down Under.

When an evil poacher kidnaps Cody to catch the eagle, a group of local animals contacts the Rescue Aid Society in New York City, who assign their top mice, Bernard and Bianca, to the case. To save Cody and the eagle, the agents fly to Australia on a clumsy albatross and enlist the help of an adventurous kangaroo rat. – Wikipedia
