Guess what, Disney fans! More reboots are coming!
Wow! Social media has been exciting lately with a flood of Investor day announcements from Disney+.
The popular streaming service announced dozens of upcoming additions to its library. Included are an impressive array of reboots!
Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers
If you are anything like me, you grew up watching 90’s cartoons. If you missed the 90’s, you can catch many hit titles on Disney+. I have enjoyed watching the old shows with my own kids. There is just nothing quite like singing “Ducktales” and having little ones respond by singing “Woo-oo!” back to you.
Disney has already rebooted Ducktales with great success. The new series is every bit as popular as the original.
Now, Disney is rebooting another 90’s classic. A film version of Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers is coming at us soon! The reboot will be a hybrid live-action-animated film. Animated characters will coexist with live action counterparts.
The cast has already been set. John Mulaney will play Chip, and Andy Samberg will play Dale.
I’m hoping that the Ch-ch-ch-chip and Dale theme song is being worked in somehow. (You are singing it now, aren’t you?)

Cheaper by the Dozen
Cheaper by the Dozen is a book I remember well from childhood. It follows the day-to-day adventures of a family of twelve children. Can you imagine planning a Disney trip for a dozen children?
The novel became a film in the 1950’s. It received a reboot in 2003 staring Steve Martin and Hillary Duff.
I suppose that makes the new reboot a reboot of a reboot. Would we call that a “threeboot?”
Cheaper by the Dozen is being reimagined by producer Kenya Barris. You may know her from the smash hit comedy “Blackish.”
We also know that Gabrielle Union has signed on to star in the film. I cannot wait to see how it unfolds.
Three Men and a Baby
A few months ago, rumors were swirling that Disney was rebooting Three Men and a Baby. For the full story click here.
The original tells the story of a trio of bachelors who find a baby on their doorstep. The comedy takes the audience on a parenting adventure full of twists and turns.
Now, Disney+ has confirmed that the rumors are true. A baby reboot is on the way!
The film will make its way to Disney+ sometime in 2022. In the meantime, you can refresh your memory by streaming the witty original on Disney+.
Disney alum Zac Efron has landed the film’s starring roll. You probably know him from High School Musical and the Greatest Showman.
Turner and Hooch
Next on the reboot list is Turner and Hooch. This classic film is being reimagined as a TV series.
We are excited to see a lovely mastiff will be the focus, just like in the original rendition. The pooch will star alongside Josh Peck.
The rumors are true! Disney IS reworking the Little Mermaid.
A diverse cast will star in this live action remake including Halle Bailey as Ariel. I was personally elated to see Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs cast as Sebastian.
This is one I will NOT be skipping. I’ll definitely be in the “room where it happens” to be streaming.
It seems as if the 20’s will be filled with reboots. I can’t wait to check them out in hopes that they will live up to the originals.
