The Live-Action Remake Universe (LIAR Universe for short) is an alternate continuity of the Prime Universe.


Distinguished from the Prime Universe mostly by the dominance of humans on Earth to the exclusion of other anthropomorphic species, the LIAR Universe was the stage of many events mirroring those of the Prime Universe; for example, it had its own Cinderella and its own Maleficent, though neither entirely like the original.

Behind the scenes

The LIAR Universe is posited on this Wiki to be a parallel universe comprising all the modern Disney live-action remakes, beginning at the latest with the 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean adaption, The Curse of the Black Pearl. Note that the place of the live-action 101 Dalmatians is rendered ambiguous by the announcement of a separate live-action remake in the works, and so it and its sequels may exist in yet another universe.

It should be noted that despite the Genie's Lamp making a cameo in The Jungle Book and other such 'hints', there has been no hard official word that all the live-action remakes take place in a single universe. It is simply a matter of Occam's Razor. Should evidence surface that any two of the live-action remakes cannot exist in the same continuity, the Wiki reserves the right to retract or modify this theory.

Christopher Robin, Oz the Great and Powerful and Mary Poppins Returns are sometimes roped in with the other Disney Live-Action Remakes. However, despite being part of the same artistic trend, both films are actually sequels and place in the same universe as the originals they are based on; thus, they are not considered part of the LIAR Universe.
