A really interesting article! To be honest, I have no idea what to think/feel about Disney and their current “Live-action” spree. Disney has never been part of my life and I just don’t really care about them, so neither the nostalgia works on me, and I’m not outraged that they’ve ruined my childhood movies. But I do find the wider conversation around exploitation of nostalgia and intertextuality really interesting.

I am surprised by the fact that Cinderella is only ranked third there! I think it’s by far the best live action adaption, which almost perfectly walked the line between loyalty to the original and breaking new ground. I actually thought it was really well done.
