25 Dream Casting Choices For Live-Action Disney Classics



Now that the casting of live action Aladdin is under way, the time has come to take a closer look at some of the dream casting decisions that should one day be made for various other Disney classics. Read on to find out more…

We are hard pressed to think of a better Ariel than Sophie Turner.

Meanwhile, Ian Somerhalder has the right combination of dark hair and dapper good looks to play Prince Eric.

Jessica Brown Findlay may be known for her role on Downton Abbey, but she would definitely make a a great Belle.

Taylor Kitsch’s rugged appearance makes him the front runner to play a live action Beast.

Joe Manganiello’s formidable size and hulking screen presence make a no brainer choice for Gaston.

Sleeping Beauty didn’t have a doppelganger….until Saoirse Ronan showed up, that is.

Come to think of it, we’ve never seen Chris Pratt and Prince Phillip in the same room.

Freida Pinto won our hearts with her role in Slumdog Millionaire and we would love to see her as Princess Jasmine.

While Zayn Malik might not be an actor, just imagine him belting all of the Aladdin numbers.

Shay Mitchell has already dressed up like Pocahontas on Pretty Little Liars, so this one already seems like a done deal to us.

Chris Hemsworth already made his presence felt in Snow White and the Huntsman, so its only right that he play John Smith too.

Gugu Mbatha Raw can sing and act equally well, making her the perfect choice to play Tiana from Princess and the Frog.

Fan Binging as Mulan makes entirely too much sense not to happen…if you ask us.

Zoe Kazan’s kind and cherubic appearance makes us wonder why she hasn’t been asked to play Snow White already.

Amanda Seyfried is the perfect Disney princess and we are stunned that she has not been cast as one yet. She’s a dead ringer for Rapunzel, don’t you think?

Hercules is one of the more underrated Disney movies and Sam Heughan is the best possible choice to play him.

Megara is quite the sassy one, so who better to play her than the ever sardonic Aubrey Plaza?

While Shia LaBeouf isn’t a perfect match for Hunchback, he’s got the range for it.

Vanessa Hudgens might not be your first choice to play a gypsy, but just try to find a better Esmerelda.

Jason Momoa not being cast as Tarzan in the upcoming live action is an injustice that needs to be righted at once.

Jane needs to be played by a proper English woman, so our first thought was Felicity Jones.

Nicholas Hoult is an obvious choice for Peter Pan. All it takes is one look at his boyish face.

Kiernan Shipka does petulance so well on Mad Men, she’s a slam dunk choice for Tinker Bell.

Emma Stone is Anna from Frozen and we can’t believe that we didn’t notice this until now.

Olivia Wilde is one of the first names that comes to mind when we think “ice princess” or “Elsa”, but we mean that as a compliment!
