Disney are once again diving into their vast library of classic animated movies for a new live action version of “Robin Hood”, which will be a Disney+ Exclusive!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, this movie will be directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, who previously directed Blindspotting.   The movie will be written by Kari Granlund, who previously worked on the Disney+ Original movie Lady and the Tramp and is also co-writing another Disney+ Original movie, Godmothered..  With Justin Springer also aboard the project as a producer.

The movie will be also be a musical and will feature the characters as anthropomorphic, this time in a live-action/CG hybrid format.

In the original animated movie from 1973, with King Richard off to the Crusades, Prince John and his slithering minion, Sir Hiss, set about taxing Nottingham’s citizens with support from the corrupt sheriff – and staunch opposition by the wily Robin Hood and his band of merry men.

It’s still in the early stages of development and no official details have yet been announced by Disney.
