Will Disney remake Pixar films in live action?

I want a live action version of Brave because that movie can actually be improved. It fell apart after the first 30 minutes because it went into the mindless fun direction and lost all the exciting drama it had build up. What a huge disappointment it was.

Part of it I think is about refreshing the properties and bringing back old characters into pop culture conversations. Having Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King in the same year seems like overkill, but I don't think they will remake Toy Story etc when there are still potential for sequels. I guess they don't have the capacity to do traditional animation anymore and they don't think anything done that way would be a hit.

Pixar films illustrate the problem with calling these Disney remakes "Live Action". Outside of films like Brave where you could replace the 3D characters with live actors, for many of the films you'd still be dealing with a 3D animation, just with a different "Realism" art style.

I honestly don't think so. It really seems to be their 2D hand drawn animation that they're moving to live action / cg. Pixar already being CG seems redundant

I hope not but I am sure there is demand so they probably will

Only if the toys in Toy Story are real people dressed as toys and not CG. Imagine live action Woody and Buzz antics with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen. It’d be hilarious to watch.
