When it comes to the movie industry, studios seem to be all about the remakes — and Disney is no exception. Recently, Disney has been remaking a lot of their classic films into live-action versions. They have also been turning a number of films into Disney+ original series — like The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. Now, Disney has released the trailer for its newest Disney+ movie, Cheaper By The Dozen.
The remake was originally announced by Fox back in 2016, but Disney acquired the property when it bought Fox in 2019. Disney continued to work on the film, but filming had to be put on pause in early 2020, due to the pandemic. Gabrielle Union was announced to star in the film during Disney’s Investor Day, and Zach Braff joined the cast in early 2021. Filming officially began with the entire cast in April 2021.
On February 7, Disney released the film’s first trailer and a description on YouTube, which you can watch below.
he Disney+ Original movie “Cheaper by the Dozen,” which is a fresh take on the 2003 hit family comedy starring Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff, will premiere March 18, 2022, exclusively on Disney+. Check out the trailer for a glimpse at the funny and heartwarming story of the raucous exploits of a blended family of 12, the Bakers, as they navigate a hectic home life while simultaneously managing their family business.
“Cheaper by the Dozen” is directed by Gail Lerner with a screenplay by Kenya Barris & Jenifer Rice-Genzuk Henry based upon the novel by Frank Bunker Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. Kenya Barris is producing, with Shawn Levy, Gabrielle Union, Brian Dobbins and Donald J. Lee, Jr. serving as executive producers. The movie stars Gabrielle Union, Zach Braff, Erika Christensen, Timon Kyle Durrett, Journee Brown, Kylie Rogers, Andre Robinson, Caylee Blosenski, Aryan Simhadri, Leo Abelo Perry, Mykal-Michelle Harris, Christian Cote, Sebastian Cote and Luke Prael.
Disney’s new version of Cheaper By The Dozen is not the first time that the film has been remade. The original film — starring Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy — first came out in 1950. Then, in 2003, 20th Century Fox remade Cheaper By The Dozen with Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt. A sequel to the 2003 film was then made in 2005.
Cheaper By The Dozen will be released on Disney+ on March 18 and will be available to all Disney+ subscribers.
