Ready for jazz to take over you? Disney continues to bet on adapting its classics to the format live action despite the fact that not all these projects have had the desired success. Now, the story they will present is one much loved by entire generations; a story that will also be full of music. We are about to see a remake of The Aristocats.
The news came from the hand of Deadline, a medium that clarifies that, obviously, the new version of the film will not completely obey the live action format, but will be a hybrid production that will also incorporate computer animation. In fact, it is mentioned that the visual style will be very close to that of The Lady and the Trampwhich premiered in 2019 on the Disney Plus platform.
It is very important to talk about the people who will be behind the film, as their inclusion is quite fortunate. Especially if you think about the needs required by a production whose musical aspect must always be at the forefront. This to do justice to the melodies that are recorded in the collective imagination.
He remake of The Aristocats will be led by Amir “Questlove” ThompsonOscar-winning musician and director for the documentary Summer Of Soul (2021). In addition to fulfilling his role behind the camera, it has been announced that Thompson will oversee the soundtrack. It would be interesting if he contributed interpreting several tracks, since he works as a drummer in the group The Roots it gives you the required license for this.
In addition to this, it is known that the script will be written by Will Gluck and Keith Bunin. Bunin is known for his work in the film horns (2013), but the truth is that Gluck’s style fits better with that of the new Disney film, since he took charge of the two hybrid adventures live action/CGI of Peter Rabbit.
At the moment, there is no more information about the remake of The Aristocatsand it has not been decided whether it will be released in streaming or in theaters.
