Daniel Richtman, a well-regarded industry insider, has also confirmed the project. It’s reported that Ashleigh Powell, known for her work on “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” has penned a draft.
As of now, no additional details have been provided. Given the current writers/actors strike and Disney’s significant budget cuts, the release of a live-action “Tangled” film is not assured, especially in the near future. However, considering Disney’s live-action films have raked in over $6.5 billion worldwide, it’s evident the studio will remain keen on producing more live-action adaptations in the future.
In the upcoming years, Disney will release many live-action adaptations. Set to debut are “Snow White” (2024), “Lilo & Stitch” (2024), “Mufasa” (2024), and “Moana” (2025). Besides these and the previously noted “Tangled”, Disney is exploring live-action versions of “Princess and the Frog,” “Aristocats,” “Hercules,” “The Sword in the Stone,” “Bambi,” and “Robin Hood.” However, it’s worth noting that the projects without specified release dates are still in early development and might not see fruition.
