Tangled earned $592 million in worldwide box office revenue. Considering the studio effectively translated its iconic animated films into live-action successes like Aladdin and The Lion King, it’s no surprise that the popularity of Tangled has inspired them to take on a live-action version. The Lion King holds the top rank, grossing 1.6 billion worldwide is the highest-grossing live-action of Disney’s animated remakes, with Beauty and the Beast collecting 1.3 billion worldwide and the most recent remake of The Little Mermaid has received decent reviews.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the animated film Moana would be getting a live-action remake. The studio has teamed with Dwayne Johnson to develop a live-action remake of its 2016 animated musical sensation. Other notable classic live-action Disney remakes are Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Peter Pan, Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmatians, and Mulan.
