Disney has been remaking their cinematic classics for many years now. These remakes have gained popularity in recent years and are part of Disney’s strategy to capitalize on their extensive catalog. Disney remakes serve several purposes. They allow Disney to introduce classic stories to a new generation of audiences, often with updated visuals and contemporary themes. They also provide an opportunity to monetize existing intellectual property and expand the Disney brand.

Many of these remakes come from the company’s large catalog of full-featured films like, The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Herbie, and The Absent-Minded Professor. Recently we have seen an increase in the remaking of many animated classics into live-action adaptations, like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. But the remakes have faced criticism for being overly reliant on nostalgia and not offering much that is new or innovative. But are there movies that Disney would not remake?

In this episode, Rachel and Jeremiah are going to tackle this exact question. They go over 10 classic Disney films that they believe the company will not try to remake. Hear their thoughts about each picture and why they think a remake is not going to happen.
