Live-Action Adaptation of “The Aristocats” Now in Early Development

According to Deadline, the latest animated Disney film to be getting the live-action treatment appears to be 1970’s classic, The Aristocats.

What’s Happening:

  • A live-action adaptation of The Aristocats is in early development at Walt Disney Studios.
  • Will Gluck and Keith Bunin are writing the script, with Gluck producing through his Olive Bridge Entertainment banner.
  • Based on the 1970 animated film, which followed a family of Parisian felines who come to find out they are set to inherit a fortune from their owner. When the owner’s jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country, they must team up with a smooth-talking tomcat to try to make it back home before it’s too late.
  • The film is still very early in development, so not many details are known at this point, including whether it would be for theatrical or streaming.
  • Sources for Deadline did add that even though its main characters are animals, it would have a similar look to 2019’s Lady and the Tramp, released exclusively on Disney+ for the streaming service’s debut.
