When asked how it feels to join this group, Caro sighed. Thats depressing, isnt it? As a statistic, thats really depressing. But she acknowledged the studio responsible for tapping the latest names on the list. Big ups to Disney for the fact that their last two movies are directed by women. And she displayed no uncertainty about what she plans to do now that shes one of them: Me and Ava, she promised, well just kick that door wide open so more can follow. Disneys Mulan remake is just one of many beloved animated films the studio is revisiting , from last years The Jungle Book and the Beauty and the Beast remake in theaters now to Guy Ritchies forthcoming take on Aladdin and Tim Burtons live-action Dumbo . Last fall, Disney put out a casting call for actors bilingual in English and Mandarin to star in Mulan , which is due November 2018.

The British artist, producer, jeweller, DJ and actor's life story is every bit as inspiring as the music he's been creating for 25 years and Goldie promises that all of the good and bad from his childhood as well as his rise to prominence will be covered in the book. "All Things Remembered is not just the story of how and why, it's everything from the children's homes to the Whispering Wheels roller-disco to rolling with the graffiti kings of New York to writing with David Bowie," said Goldie.

In 1992, Princess Jasmine became the first non-white princess to feature in a Disney film, breaking with 55 years of the studio only having white princesses. In a commitment to increasing its diversity, between 2016 and 2018, about 24 per cent of the studio's live-action releases will feature ethnic minority leads, reported Vanity Fair. What about Disney's other projects? It has been paying a lot of attention to live action remakes recently, with Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens soon to be released. A series of other rebooted Disney classics will take on this format, including Mulan, the Lion King, the Jungle Book and Cinderella. When will Aladdin be released? Setting a release date might be a little far off. Shooting will take place over a six month period from July 2017 to January 2018 and the open casting call will be held in April. Disney Aladdin

I can't think of anything where the remake is as good as the original. Beauty And The Beast is about to come out. But I don't think they've made a picture movie of that. The remake of The Jungle Book was good.
