With Pete’s Dragon coming out, I decided to look at the best non-animated Disney movies.  Because I haven’t seen a bunch of these since I was a kid, it’s hard to tell whether they actually belong in their spots or not.  But hey, it’s my list so that’s alright.  I’ve decided not to include any Marvel or Star Wars movies in this list even though they technically qualify as Disney live action.

I thought the idea of children’s movies was to not scare the living crap out of the children?…

The Jungle Book is a live action (kind of) remake of the “classic” Disney animated movie.  It features the voice talents of Bill Murray as Baloo the bear, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, and Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha trying to protect Mowgli (Neel Sethi) from Shere Khan (Idris Elba).
