Ron Howard's light take on "The Little Mermaid" has become a comedy classic in it's own right.
The film starring Daryl Hannah and Tom Hanks grossed nearly $70 million domestically in '84.
'Ever After: A Cinderella Story' (1998)
1998's take on Cinderella starring Drew Barrymore was a hit.
"Ever After: A Cinderella Story" grossed nearly $100 million worldwide and has since become a beloved movie.
You may have forgotten that there has already been a live-action take on "Beauty and the Beast," but we didn't.
"Beastly," starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer in the lead roles was ignored at the box-office earning $43 million worldwide.
'A Cinderella Story' (2004)
The Hilary Duff starring live-action take on the classic tale of Cinderella was a box-office success.
One of Duff's early film roles post "Lizzie McGuire," "A Cinderella Story" earned $70 million worldwide and made her a star.
'The Jungle Book' (2016)
Disney had a remarkable year at the box-office in 2016. Part of that success was thanks to its live-action remake of "The Jungle Book."
The film, featuring voice work from Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray and more A-list actors, grossed nearly $1 billion.
'Peter Pan' (2003)
It seems that "Peter Pan" is the go-to fairytale to remake.
One of the several live-action iterations is 2003's box-office flop of the same name.
The film was critically acclaimed but it couldn't manage to deliver with audiences. Earning just $120 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million, the film's performance was disappointing.
'101 Dalmatians' (1996)
Disney's 1996 live-action remake of "101 Dalmatians" was a box-office hit.
The film earned over $320 million at the box-office and Glenn Close delivered an iconic performance as Cruella de Vil.
One of 2015's major box-office disasters was "Pan," the musical take on Peter Pan.
The film, starring Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara, cost a reported $150 million to produce and barely earned $130 million worldwide.
'Snow White and the Huntsman' (2012)
There are a few non-Disney remakes of classic tales that exist.
2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" was a global success, thanks to its all-star cast. It's a darker take on the fairytale than expected, but the Kristen Stewart-starring film earned nearly $400 million worldwide.
'Mirror Mirror' (2012)
IMDB/Snow White Productions
2012 saw the release of two Snow White-inspired movies. There was "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Mirror Mirror."
"Mirror Mirror" wasn't as big of a box-office success. The Julia Roberts-starring film earned under $200 million worldwide.
'Pete's Dragon' (2016)
Disney's penchant for remaking their own films veers outside of the fairytales.
The remake of the 1977 half-animated, half live-action film generated positive reviews but didn't exactly light the box office on fire. The film earned under $150 million worldwide.
'Alice In Wonderland' (2010)
Disney's "Alice In Wonderland" live-action retelling, as directed by Tim Burton, was a box-office smash.
The film, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, grossed over $1 billion worldwide.
'Alice Through The Looking Glass' (2016)
Seven years following the massive success of the original film, a sequel to "Alice In Wonderland" fizzled at the box-office.
Disney's long-delayed sequel didn't earn as much as the original film ... or even close to it. The film earned nearly $300 million worldwide, failing in comparison to the first film.
Thanks to Angelina Jolie's wicked turn as the iconic villain, "Maleficent" was box-office success for Disney.
The film, which focused more on the villain from the animated classic "Sleeping Beauty" than the titular princess, grossed over $750 million worldwide.
Similar to "Maleficent," "Hook" took a bigger focus on the infamous "Peter Pan" villain than the hero.
Robin Williams starred as the adult Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as his arch enemy. The film grossed $300 million worldwide and has become a classic in its own right.
Continuing Disney's trend of successful live-action remakes of their own animated classics, 2015's "Cinderella" starring Lily James as the title princess was a smash hit. The film grossed over $500 worldwide at the box-office.
The film also boasts a standout performance from Cate Blanchett as the evil Stepmother.
