Not really, since Oliver and Company is basically Oliver Twist, except Oliver is a cat, Dodger is a dog and a few other things, along with the movie being set in 1980s New York instead of Industrial London.

I was actually hoping Disney would give this another go, because I despise their previous live-action take as well as Oliver and Company. But I've lost interest now that I know this is going to be a modern take on the story, or at least a modern musical version of it. I'll stick with the 2005 Roman Polanski version.

Another one that'll bomb hard at the box office.

I love Oliver and Company, the movie that made me a Disney animation fan! Im surprised they havent tried a cheap Beverly Hills Chihuahua type remake of it.
In a way this is sorta a remake of O& C b/c it will be a modern take of it like the animated version is.

When did Disney do Oliver Twist before? Other than Oliver & Company of course.

Uh...I wouldn't say a modern take on a story is remake of a different time, place, and species modern take on a story.

They made a tv version of it for The Wonderful World of Disney in 1997. It had Elijah Wood as Dodger and Richard Dreyfuss as Fagin.

Strange that they're making a remake of a musical that isn't really theirs. I'm still not interested in the modern take they're going with.

They're not. They're doing their own musical adaptation of Oliver Twist.

Me neither. Do we really need a hip-hop, breakdancing Oliver?

The re-imagined Oliver! features a cross-genre soundtrack that will include hip-hop.

In the article posted above, it said Walt Disney Remake of Oliver! so that's why I thought that.

I got a dvd copy of this movie and saw it once. I did not like it because it deviated too much from the original novel for my taste. But I suppose that’s the Dickens purist in me.

I still consider David Lean’s classic adaptation from 1948 as the best so far.

I think Oliver should be played by Madeleine Haynes, Lola Moxom or Ruby Stokes. Which ever was the one i saw att the Piccadilly Theatre in 2016.

I love Eddie Redmayne although I would never picture him as Fagin. Isn't Fagin usually older?

I am really confused . Is the Oliver Twist movie that Michael Caine and Rita Ora are staring the Disney one that is based on the stage musical with Ron Moody ? or is this a completely different Oliver Twist movie without songs or any involment from Disney ?

And is this the one with Jude Laws son im ity and is it also the same movie Ice Cube was suposed to star in at frist ?

Or are there more than one Oliver Twist movie being made ? Please clear things up !

Also is Eddie Redmayne or Michael Caine actually playing Fagin ? News sources says both are are some articles lies or are these different Oliver Twist movies ?

The Oliver Twist with Michael Caine and Jude Law's son is going to be a made-for-television British production.

The one Disney is making is still with Ice Cube attached, much to my knowledge.

Maybe you should post about the British television version in a different thread to avoid confusion ?
