One odd phenomenon is that musicals written directly for the screen seem to have become exceedingly rare, unless they're animated (as in three of the cases above).  These, in turn, are then often turned into Broadway musicals (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid)...which are only then turned into live-action films. More typically, hit Broadway shows (The Phantom of the Opera, Cats, The Producers) are turned directly into films, but often not successfully.
