Disney sequel spin-off chart

If you’ve been paying attention to movie news over the past year, then you’re probably aware that Disney has been digging around in their vault for inspiration by giving some of their animated classics the live-action treatment with revisionist takes on the same story, or spin-offs following other characters from the movie.

Just this year alone we’ve gotten word of Tim Burton directing Dumbo, Alex Ross Perry writing Winnie the Pooh, and Reese Witherspoon starring in a Tinkerbell movie, not to mention live-action takes on Mulan, Pinocchio, Prince Charming and now an Aladdin prequel called Genies.

It’s a lot to keep track of, but thankfully, a helpful new chart has surfaced online to help Disney fans keep track of all the sequels, spin-offs and remakes from the past and the future, and there’s even some interesting information to be gleaned from the chart as well.
