We wished upon a star, but we got some real stinkers instead! At Mickey News, we love celebrating Disney’s magical creations. However, even the most enchanting fairy tale factory can occasionally produce a pumpkin instead of a carriage. Today, we’re diving into the lesser-loved side of Disney’s live-action catalog, spotlighting those films that left audiences yawning or cringing in their seats.

From ill-fated remakes to misfires that missed their magic, WatchMojo has put together a list of the top 20 films that might make you wish for a fast-forward button. Titles like “A Wrinkle in Time,” “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” and “Dumbo” were high on the list for not quite delivering the charm and fantasy we expect from the House of Mouse. Fans of “Pinocchio” and “Peter Pan” might find themselves wishing upon a star for these stories to have stayed animated, as their live-action counterparts failed to capture the original heart and wonder.

And then, there’s the infamous “Inspector Gadget”—a film that has become a case study in how not to adapt a beloved cartoon into a live-action feature. “Artemis Fowl,” an eagerly anticipated adaptation of the popular book series, left fans profoundly disappointed with its hasty character development and muddled storyline. And who could forget the oddball fiasco that was “Mr. Magoo”? Perhaps this one should have been left at the storyboard stage!

Despite these less-than-magical experiences, every Disney fan knows that even the greatest storytellers can stumble. It’s worth noting that Disney’s live-action hits far outshine these few missteps. Who hasn’t been enchanted by the spellbinding success of films like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin”? So let’s consider these 20 titles as a whimsical reminder that even in the most dazzling kingdoms, a misstep or two can make the soaring successes all the more magical.

We’d love to hear your thoughts! Which Disney live-action film left you unenchanted? Do you think any films didn’t deserve to make WatchMojo’s list?
