At the moment, Disney has remade 10 of their animated classics into live-action (or something close to live-action) movies, plus two more live-action sequels.
They also have at least 20 more remakes planned.
Here’s how all the live-action — or intensely realistically animated, in the case of “The Lion King” — characters compare to their animated counterparts.

As of late, Disney has been leaning into the live-action remake. In 2019, they’ve released live, or close to live, versions of “Dumbo,” “Aladdin,” and “The Lion King.”

The villainous — and comically vain — Gaston was played by Luke Evans.
No word if Evans ate five dozen eggs every day to get in character.
Josh Gad played Gaston’s loyal henchman, LeFou.
LeFou was also supposed to be Disney’s first gay character, but some fans were less than impressed with the scene that was supposed to convey that.
The dashing candelabra Lumiere was voiced by Ewan McGregor.
Lumiere’s best known for the iconic Disney anthem “Be Our Guest.” Human Lumiere was just as charming.
And Ian McKellan voiced the clock version of the anxious Cogsworth.
He ended up being a softy at heart, though.
Emma Thompson took over for Angela Lansbury as talking teapot Mrs. Potts.
