The 1973 Disney movie Robin Hood is getting a live action/CGI-hybrid remake. If you don’t know/remember, the original was a musical version of the story of Robin Hood featuring a cast of entirely woodland creatures. Great, now everybody’s going to get weird boners over hot CGI Robin Hood.
Disney’s Robin Hood was all over the place. It featured a fox-version of Robin Hood robbing from a lion king (foreshadowing). And Robin Hood’s best friend was a bear, and there was a country-singing rooster. I didn’t even mention the rhinoceros guards. Here’s the main title featuring the Johnny Cash-style rooster, Alan-A-Dale, whistling a country tune:
Deadline reports that this CGI Robin Hood isn’t coming out in theaters. So maybe someone did learn a thing or two from the disaster which was Cats. It will be released on Disney+. Apparently this was one of the last deals solidified by Disney before the coronavirus lockdown.
“Disney+ is in the early development stage of a live-action/CG hybrid remake to the 1976 animated classic Robin Hood. The studio is bringing back Kari Granlund, who penned the Lady and the Tramp remake, to write the screenplay for Blindspotting helmer Carlos Lopez Estrada to direct.
Justin Springer, who produced the recent Dumbo remake, is producing this latest take. The original was a musical comedy that featured anthropomorphic animals in the role of Robin Hood characters.
Deals were closed in early March before the Hollywood lockdown took effect.”
And this movie is far from being released, but I’m sure furries are already screaming for the butthole version to come out.
