You’ve probably treated yourself to the live action Disney offerings of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and the Lion King, and if you’re like me, you just can’t wait for Mulan.

Now, according to both The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly, we’re going to be adding a live-action Hercules to the mix.

There’s no news yet as far as a director or cast, but we do know that Dave Callahan, who wrote the upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings film (part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe), is penning the script.

More MCU alums, The Russo Brothers, are listed as producers.

Of course, people are really excited, because we all have our Disney favs.

They’ve got ideas on casting, like these suggestions no one can argue about…


And this expanded list that we also can’t argue with. I mean, that’s some star power right there!


At least one member of the OG cast should be invited back, right? Right, glad you agree.


Also, let’s point out the facts of the situation. Like which hunk will play Hercules. Paging all the Hollywood hotties…

And these facts also.


Please, please let’s keep this dream alive.


And make this one die a slow, painful death.

There is no other option, here. Because Loki is dead and we need more Hiddleston… immediately!


What are your thoughts? Are you pumped? Yeah you are!
