With Disney refurbishing Tron, The Black Hole, and Flight of the Navigator, it's obvious the Mouse House is mining its past for modern greenbacks. What Disney properties deserve an update? And no, we don't mean Hall of Presidents: The Movie.
Since the success of Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney hasn't been trying to capture lightning in a bottle twice. No, they've gone whole hog and built an entire lightning bottling plant designed to transmogrify your fuzzy nostalgia into hard cash. It's a massive paradigm shift for the company - a decade ago, who would've thought an Escape From Witch Mountain sequel would've raked in $100 million? Hell, even Lindsay Lohan's Herbie: Fully Loaded turned a huge profit.
With new versions of The Black Hole, Swiss Family Robinson, and Flight of the Navigator coming down the pike, it's possible that some of the following properties will be in the reticule of Walt Disney Pictures' money-gun. With some luck, they'll have all the swagger of the first Pirates of the Caribbean and none of the superfluity of the last two.
