Disney princess movie marathons to run at AMC through September and October

It's going to be a magical autumn!

Disney has teamed up with AMC to screen your favorite throwback flicks throughout September and October. Starting September 8, Disney princess films will run each week at AMC theaters across the country. The "Dream Big, Princess" marathon extends until October 13.

The marathon kicks off with "Beauty and the Beast" -- the original, not the new one! -- on September 15. After that, AMC will roll out screenings of "Mulan," "Tangled," "Moana," "The Princess and the Frog" and "Brave."

Of course, choosing only six movies means that some classics won't get the royal treatment -- but who could complain about this lineup? We'll happily compromise "Cinderella" to see "Tangled" back on the big screen.

Tickets for the AMC showings nationwide go on sale August 2. Los Angeles fans can also enjoy the movie marathon at the El Capitan theater, where tickets go on sale August 4.

If you're not feeling the old-school animation, rest easy: Disney has a slew of live-action remakes in development. "Mulan" is slated for a November 2018 release, and Reese Witherspoon has signed on to star in the upcoming "Tinker Bell."

Other Disney live-action movies up ahead include "Aladdin," "Peter Pan" and "Prince Charming," which will mark the first time we see a different side of the usually one-dimensional Prince Charming character.

All of the upcoming Disney live-action movies are in the slideshow below.

Donald Glover will play Simba in the upcoming live-action adaption of "The Lion King," and James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa (!!!). According to Disney, the film is on the "fast track" through production and may arrive sooner rather than later. Jon Favreau will direct -- he also directed 2016's "The Jungle Book," so he's sure to crush it!

Now this is interesting: Disney is developing a story centered on Prince Charming (either from "Cinderella" or "Snow White"). There's a lot of work to be done there since the original men weren't exactly riveting characters.

In perfect casting news, Reese Witherspoon has signed on to play the sassy Neverland fairy in "Tink."

Your childhood crush is coming to life. The new "Aladdin" will reportedly be a brand-new take on the beloved story and is expected to seriously deviate from the original plot. In March 2017, Disney announced open casting calls to find their perfect Aladdin and Jasmine. They're looking for Middle Eastern actors, and shooting begins this summer.

We've seen remakes of "Peter Pan" before, but the magical story is slated for another upcoming live-action reboot. It's difficult to cast because not too many actors have pointed elf ears.

What's Christopher Robin up to now? The upcoming "Winnie the Pooh" adaption will show us: In this version, he'll be all grown up.

The live-action "Mulan" is currently in pre-production, and the actress taking on the title role hasn't yet been announced. It's scheduled for a 2018 release.

Disney is working on a real-life "Little Mermaid," and she better still be a redhead.

Emma Stone will play the evil Cruella in the 2018 flick. You've gotta assume she received offers for "The Little Mermaid," too, and she was like, nah, I know what I'm about.

Disney announced an "Aladdin" prequel that reveals Genie's backstory, but the plan was tabled (or maybe entirely scrapped) in favor of an Aladdin-focused story. We'll see if it moves back into development.

"The Sword in the Stone," released in 1963, is making its return! The story features King Arthur before he reigned supreme: He was an orphan who received special lessons from Merlin the wizard.

Tim Burton is directing the live-action "Dumbo," which means it may not be quite so cheery as the original.

The new adaption of "Pinocchio" will reportedly be only loosely based on the original story.

After the smash success of 2016's "The Jungle Book," it was no surprise that Disney decided to move forward with a sequel.

Angelina Jolie will return as Maleficent in a sequel to the 2014 film.

"Snow White," originally released in 1938, is getting a much-deserved remake. 

Credit: Disney

Did you know Snow White has a sister? Neither did we, but apparently her name is "Rose Red" and she's getting her own live-action movie. She hangs out with the dwarves after her Snow White meets her poisonous (temporary) end.
