Right now, Walt Disney Animation Studio is hard at work creating the next hit movie.

In the past, Disney has been responsible for creating some of the most iconic and timeless classics. Films like Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast were incredibly influential and shaped the generations who grew up watching them. These films are a big reason why Disney has the die-hard fanbase that it does today.

When you are talking to a Disney fan about the biggest criticisms they have of the company, a standard answer might be the lack of original stories. Right now, Disney is focussing a lot of time, energy, and money on creating live-action versions of these classic films. While the live-action versions historically have done very well in theatres, many fans are feeling burnt out by the number of remakes.
