Is it me or is the non-Disney live-action movie purposefully trying to create market confusion? A lot of people already think this is Disney's TLM. Their poster looks like a live-action version of the Disney one.

That movie might be why this one’s being put off a little longer (and not just because of Miranda).

The poster for that movie looks awful though. It makes it look like the Faerie Tale Theater episode.

I finally saw the commercial for the non-Disney TLM 2017 film. I don’t know, I think it looks a bit awful. I might like it for what it is, but not as an adaptation of the tale whatsoever. I like Shirley MacLaine and William Moseley (who's still as handsome as he was in the Narnia films), so I will check it out. Not expecting much out of it though.

This news was previously announced last year, but it was confirmed by Menken himself at the D23 Expo on Sunday.

Miranda is also reportedly producing the live-action film alongside Marc Platt.

I just wonder what Menken's real, unfiltered thoughts must be. I'm sure he's being polite and we'll never hear a bad word out of him via the media, but damn. I feel like I need to pop a pill everytime a new update comes for this.

I think Menken truthfully doesn't mind. He always seems to enjoy collaborating.

I dont think Miranda is bad per se. Glenn Slater didnt really provide any earth shattering songs for the Broadway show anyway. I'm more annoyed by Disney's insisting to use every latest Tony or Oscar winner to try and recapture the brilliance of Howard Ashman.

It cant be done.

I do think though he feels bad for Glenn Slater and Tim Rice who got the shaft. And I'm sure he must have been hurt for getting replaced on The Princess and the Frog, Frozen, and not being considered for Moana by his long-time collaborators Musker & Clements. He'll never admit this in public 'cause he's a class act but it's only human to feel this way.

I put that one on Lasseter. I still feel that M&C had limited control over Moana, not even being able to choose the medium they wanted. I doubt they would have been allowed to pick Menken at all.

I do too but I doubt Menken knows that.

Well, he has some pretty strong credentials. Just at a glance, seems like actors tend carryover from project to project occasionally (Cruz from Nine to OST, Depp from OST to ItW, Blunt and Streep from ItW to MPR, etc.). And LMM is involved with MPR, too... *sigh* If he were younger, Ben Wishaw would be a decent Eric, imo. Chris Pine wouldn't be too bad either. I definitely wouldn't be bothered if any actors like Firth, Walters, Streep, or Lansbury found a way into this somehow.

Ooooh, good, it's more and more likely it's happening! Well, why wouldn't it, it's a Renaissance film. I kind of don't care how bad this could turn out because it'll still be my third favorite Disney film come live, but I do hope it turns out good. We have Chicago to be hopeful for, but Into the Woods is a little ehhh, and I didn't hear On Stranger Tides was very good.
