If We Had to Cast Our Favorite Disney Classics for a Live Action Film, It Would Look Like This

Both Disney and Warner Bros. is putting together a live-action adaptation of the classic story, The Jungle Book, with such names as Bill Murray, Chistopher Walken, and Scarlett Johanssen attached to the former and Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, and Christian Bale on board for the latter. We're so excited by this prospect that we whipped up our ideal casts for our other favorite Disney animated gems. Here are our picks for seven iconic Disney princesses, along with their love interests and central villains.

1. Snow White

For the princess Snow White herself, our pick is Mia Wasikowska. This rising star has an ethereal beauty like someone a step out of time, and that innocent elegance makes her the perfect pick.

The evil Queen Grimhilde is one of the all-time greatest Disney villains, with fierce eyebrow game and a real ego problem. While our top picks, Joan Crawford and Divine, have been taken out of the running by the travesty of time, Eva Green can bring her fabulously terrifying glam to the role.

Of all the princesses' romantic interests, the O.G. The Prince might have the least to do. This role primarily involves being pretty and standing there. That's right in Ashton Kutcher's wheelhouse.

Robin Williams' Wife Informs Public About His Parkinson's Disease

As the world mourns the death of the beloved actor, Robin Williams, we have been begging for any piece of information that would help us to make sense of this entire situation. The comedic talent has been making the world laugh for decades, so of course it came as a shock that he was in such a severe state of depression that he felt his only choice was to end his own life.

His wife has recently released a statement in order to assist his mourners in coming to grips with the recent tragedy.

“Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child — Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid.

Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.

Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.

It is our hope in the wake of Robin’s tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid.”
