From live-action Disney remakes like the Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan – to fresh takes on classic films like Little Women and A Star is Born, remakes connect with audiences in a big way. Since a lot of us are watching movies at home right now, we thought we'd take a look at "the art of the remake" and explore some classic remakes available on the Cineplex Store, as well as some "new again" films coming out later this year. Join us as host Natasha Gargiulo discusses upcoming remakes of West Side Story, Dune, Candyman, and Green Knight with award-winning Canadian journalist and filmmaker Chandler Levack, and Sal Patel, managing editor of Shopify Studios in Toronto, and former managing content producer at the Toronto International Film Festival’s digital studio.
