“Cinderella”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Mulan”. What do these films have in common? They were all animated classics before they became live-action. I have consulted my list of Disney Classics and decided that more of them should become live-action and i know just who should be in them! Let me know in the comments which princesses you think should be live-action and your casting thoughts!
Okay, a live-action “Aladdin” would be AWESOME. With flying carpets, Agrabah in prominence and the best monkey ever. #abu! Anyways, back to casting. Here are my picks!
Lesley Ann Brandt was featured prominently on the first season of “The Librarians” as Lammia, the second in command for the Serpent Brotherhood, villain of the first season. She has also been on “Lucifer”. She has South-American roots and is based out of New Zealand. She seems like the perfect pick for Princess Jasmine.
Fady Elsayed starred as Ram Singh on the first, and possibly only season of BBC’s “Doctor Who” Spin-Off, “Class”. Ram is a football (soccer in England) star who needs to balance the death of his first girlfriend, losing his leg to a shadow beast and meeting new girlfriend April McLean. Oh yeah, he and his friends also need to save the school. He would be an Aladdin to die for.
2. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Snow White was the emblem of my childhood. Coming close next to “Tangled”, this was one of my most watched. I always loved how she could talk to the woodland creatures! Here are my casting pics!
Natalia Dyer is the genius behind Nancy Wheeler on the Netflix original “Stranger Things” which is about four 12 year old boys who are shocked when Will Byers, one of their little clique of four vanishes into thin air. The series is set in November of 1983, which explains the hair. The 19 year old from Nashville attended NYU. She was also on something called “I Believe in Unicorns”. but i have no idea what that is. It is my personal opinion that she would be an amazing Snow White. Oh and yeah, there have been rumors that she is dating costar Charlie Heaton, who played Jonathan Byers. Please let this be true!
Tom Felton is best known for his role as Draco Malfoy on “Harry Potter”. He wasted his talents on that idiot, that’s for sure. No offense to Draco or anything! Anyway, he has also appeared as a CIA Agent on CTV’s “The Flash”. Now, is it just me or is this guy perfect to be Snow’s Prince? Sorry, i forgot the Prince’s name!
Where do i begin with this movie? My mother used it as a lesson for me: be nice to people or an evil fairy will come and curse your kid. We need an amazing cast with Angelina Jolie back as Malificent. She was so good in “Malifecent”
Evanna Lynch was born in Ireland. She played Luna Lovegood in “Harry Potter”‘s 5-8. She has also been on “GBF”, which i personally have not seen. She would be a really good Aurora in this movie. BTWs, she broke up with Robbie Jarvis.
Jack P Shepherd is a British actor known for his role as the troubled teen to early 20’s adult, David Platt on iconic British soap opera “Coronation Street”. He hinted in an interview that David may be remarrying after the tragic death of his wife Kylie at the hands of Clayton Hibbs. This guy would be the perfect Prince Phillip!
4.The Little Mermaid
This movie made me want to become a mermaid. I would spend days wearing my Ariel costume and singing “Under the Sea”. Hahaha. Good times.
Lindy Booth was born in Oakville, Ontario. She played Claudia on “Relic Hunter as her very first acting role (Which she never thought she would get) which she dyed her hair blonde for. However, she is most known for her role on “The Librarians” as Cassandra Cillian. She would be the best Princess Ariel ever.
Charlie Heaton is the guy who played the amazing Jonathan Byers on “Stranger Things”, the Netflix exclusive. As stated when i was talking about Natalia Dyer, he might be dating her and i hope its true. Now, this guy here is the perfect Prince Eric!
Today’s bonus material is fantasy-casting for 2018’s “Mulan” live-action. Here are my casting picks!
Lucy Liu is a Chinese-American who starred as Joan Watson on “Elementary”, where she was no damsel in distress. Same goes for when she played Viper on “Kung Fu Panda”. She is an excellent choice for Fa Mulan.
John Harlan Kim is a Korean-Australian who stole everybody’s hearts as try-hard, super-dreamy master thief, Ezekiel Jones on “The Librarians”. He turned 24 on January 10th, 2017. He is soooooo super-dreamy and i could make an entire blog post about that, but i won’t for obvious reasons. He currently lives in Australia, but is incredibly busy travelling. This guy = most dreamy Li Shang EVER!
