Disney is turning more of its classic stories and characters live.
The studio announced it is making nine new live-action films, following the tremendous success of "The Jungle Book," which followed the success of "Cinderella" and "Maleficent." The new projects join the upcoming "Alice Through the Looking Glass" (opening May 27) and Emma Watson's "Beauty and the Beast" (opening March 2017).
The slate boasts a slew of A-list stars, including Emma Stone in "Cruella," Dwayne Johnson in "Jungle Cruise," Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda in a "Mary Poppins" sequel, and Reese Witherspoon in "Tinkerbell."
There's also "Maleficent 2," with Angelina Jolie reprising her role; "Dumbo," directed by Tim Burton; "A Wrinkle in Time," directed by Ava DuVernay; "The Nutcracker and Four Realms," directed by Lasse Hallstrom; and "The Jungle Book 2."
None of the newly-announced movies have release dates as of yet.
