Is Disney running out of ideas?

    Earlier 2015, another live action adaptation of "Cinderella" came out (along with the mini sequel "Frozen Fever") – an official remake made by Disney. Since then, Disney has announced upcoming live action remakes for "The Jungle Book" (2016) and "Beauty and the Beast" (2017). According to The Huffington Post, other classic Disney movies that are getting live action reboots include "Mulan," "Aladdin" (with a prequel apparently), "Dumbo," "The Sword in the Stone," "Pinocchio," and "Winnie the Pooh." In addition, Disney’s D23 Expo back in August revealed upcoming sequels for "Alice in Wonderland" (the Tim Burton version), "Finding Nemo" (with Pixar), and "Pirates of the Caribbean". Remakes aside, the sequels are still coming. John Lasseter confirmed "Frozen 2." Marvel’s Stan Lee hinted at "Big Hero 7." With all of these live action reboots and sequels in development, one has to wonder… is Disney running out of ideas?

    It's been 2019 already and Disney has already released The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Alladin and Dumbo. The overall reception varies from meh to okayish, but I think they all are bad. Sure, they were commercially successful but completely unoriginal. Disney going to make remakes and sequels till 2030, I guess...
    I also keep asking why can't they make an original story or just based on a good book? After spending some time with my kids reading books we already knew which stories we would like to see on the big screen, like The Giving Tree or Madeline? I bet Disney has money to buy rights for these.

    Disney can still produce creative and good movies like "Frozen", "Moana" and so. It's just that they realize that they can make big money effortlessly by producing live action adaptations of Disney classics. So they stop making great movies and stories. ‍♀️

    It's better and oftentimes more profitable to take an existing idea and expand on it. Reinventing the wheel this day and age is truly a waste of time, money and energy.

    I think Disney is constantly coming out with live action remakes and sequels because they know that they can easily make lots of money off millennials through nostalgia. Aside from all the movies, a prime example is their streaming service Disney+. The are easily making profit from people who crave to watch shows and movies from their childhood for under $10 a month. You can say that Disney is “running out of ideas”, but it seems like the idea to make a profit off of nostalgia is going great for them. People who go out of their way to watch all these remakes are the main factor to why this is an ongoing habit for Disney.
