Disney has done really well with all of the recent live action adaptations of their cartoons. I believe both THE JUNGLE BOOK and CINDERELLA did well at the box office, as well as earning good reviews. I give them points for coming up with a whole new revenue stream from the same properties. First they branched out to Broadway and now these films are the logical next step. In addition to MULAN, I believe ALADDIN, THE LION KING, and THE LITTLE MERMAID are also in various stages of development.
