Questlove to direct Disney’s Aristocats remake, because why not?

Kenneth Branagh directed Disney’s live-action Cinderella. Jon Favreau gave us both Disney’s live-action Jungle Book and Lion King. Tim Burton brought us Disney’s live-action Dumbo—just before Guy Ritchie would make Disney’s live-action Aladdin. And soon, David Lowery will give us a live-action Peter Pan. This is only the tip of Disney’s live-action cartoon iceberg, but the point is, they’re running out of big-name directors and top-tier animated classics for these things. So now we’re getting a live-action adaptation of The Aristocats directed by Questlove.

According to Deadline, Questlove, who won an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature with his directorial debut, Summer of Soul, will head up a remake of Disney’s 1970 musical, animated rom-com about some Parisian cats set to inherit a fortune. The words all make sense, but it’s hard to truly parse it out, right?

Anyway, the drummer from The Roots and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will give us that as a movie that mixes live actors and some CGI felines. Weird!
