Once Upon a Time

As a fantasy author, I'm often inspired by fairy tales and folklore. While researching for my stories, I've spent time reading the original tales and watching the animated adaptations created by Disney and Warner Brothers.

On Mondays over the next few months (excluding the first Monday of each month), I'm going to take a look at five tales turned to animated movies and share my thoughts on how they compare to the original tale, how the role of the female main character is reflective (or not!) of the time the movie was produced, and if the two leads would actually make a good couple in real life.

The movies I'll be focusing on are:

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, and Quest for Camelot.

So, fire up your DVD player and check out the following links so you're ready to talk about how Snow White compares to the original Grimm tale next Monday!
