Movies based on animated cartoons that should be translated to live action and be treated more seriously

Recommended Posts

Ok. I've decided to make a list of cartoons/kids animes that could be done into live action movies and be treated with a better quality. Note that the list i will put first, is my own list i would rather want to see in live-action. Feel free to put your list if you want to. :D

 

Here is my list of cartoons that could be adapted into theatrical-released live-action movies.

 

Pokémon

 

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Yes, i know there is already one that M.Night Shyamalan directed,....but...i just want a more better and superior adaptation than the messy one.) Oh, and don't bring Shyamalan again to do this. It's kinda like a remake.

 

Ben 10 (Yes, i know there are 2 DTD films of this cartoon, but here's the thing.....they're DTD. I would love to see a theatrical one and treated theatrically.)

They don't necessarily all need to be taken more seriously in execution, but Gargoyles, Street Sharks, Captain Planet and Transformers: Beast Wars are all screaming for live action film adaptations.

Actually.....i know exactly who would have played each character in a "Ben 10" movie. I'll find some casting soon.

(EDIT) : OK...found some good persons that could have played their parts. Also, keep in mind....i usually pick the RIGHT celebrities to play their characters. Not neccesarily huge box office draws....but more correct persons to do their roles.

I think a live-action Thundarr the Barbarian could work as a Guardians of the Galaxy-style throwback to 80s sword-and-sorcery movies. (And it's got post-apocalyptic sci-fi mixed in too - it could be like Yor: Hunter from the Future, except actually good.)

Captain Planet was made with Don Cheadle and it was the most amazing thing of all time.

Thundercats, HO!

 

Masters of the Universe (it's always in pre-production but never comes through)

 

The Jetsons (think a cool movie is in there somewhere)

 

Also, Jem deserves better than the clueless mess coming out in September.

An Avatar last Airbender done right could rival lord of the rings.

Second Thudercats, also would be happy to see Defenders of the Earth.

 

Would actually love to see bananaman get a live action film as it could be stupidly awesome but will never happen.

I know Bananaman was British, so I keep envisioning an Edgar Wright adaptation. (And no, that has nothing to do with the whole Ant-Man thing, I thought Bananaman -> British -> Simon Pegg -> Edgar Wright)

Someone needs to do a parody trailer of that.

A Jetsons movie could be pretty cool.

Pokemon as its appeal is more gender neutral. Also, is it just me or has the Ben 10 blitz kind of reduced in the last couple of years? Seems to have taken a backseat to Avengers and Ultimate Spider-Man (cartoon) merch mania.

Attack on Titan with the right creative team and reverence to the material could be a really special Hollywood series I think. Though the likelihood of that is slim.

DBZ

Naruto

Transformers (G1)

GI Joe

Thundercats

He-Man

 

I'm asking for accurate adaptations that are well done, imaginative and bring out the best the source material has to offer.
