Guy Ritchie Will Direct Disney's Live-Action 'Aladdin'

So here's how it usually works these days in the industry. A recycled idea works well at the box-office? Recycle it again and again and again and ... you get my drift.

Alice in Wonderland $334 Million 
Cinderella $201 Million
The Jungle Book $364 Million

$$$$$$$$$ Ka-ching. Let's line-up 16 more live-action Disney classics:

"Beauty and the Beast," "101 Dalmatians," "Sleeping Beauty," "The Jungle Book 2," "Peter Pan," "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," "Mulan," "Dumbo," "Sword in the Stone," "Winnie The Pooh," "Snow White," and "Tinker Bell." 

All of these are coming out in the next 5 years. That's a deluge of films. Disney is taking over with not just these, but the Marvel movies they keep churning out year after year. If this hasn't gotten you depressed enough, they also are released a Star Wars movie every year for the net 6 years (which I bet will probably get lengthened to 10-15 because, you know, $$$$$$)

This is a safe, cozy project for Ritchie, a director that used to have potential with his first two films, "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," being one of the better Tarantino rip-offs of the 90s/00s.
