    i am all for bringing these fairytales out into the open as they were once told. i do love the Disney portrayals but they're too tamed and magical. it's good for keeping yourself or your kid from thinking that horrible things exist but that is not the reality and that is not how the story goes. when i found out about the real Little Mermaid, omg my heart sank but it was affective and i want to know every story as they were written, not the Disney verson I grew up with.

    It's fun to go back to the source material that inspired those Disney films. If my memory serves me correctly, in the movie, Ariel basically goes mute when she becomes human, but in the original story, her feet hurt and bleed every time that she steps on land.

    And in one of the original Hercules stories, he goes mad, and kills his whole family! :O I don't remember seeing that in the Disney movie.

    I am still waiting for Disney to make a watered down version of Oedipus Rex.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    Writer Of Relativity’s Snow White Movie Admits Project Borne Out Of Desire To Beat ‘Huntsman’ > The Playlist

    “‘Snow White’ I wrote in December 2010, and that is unheard of, in terms of writing a script and going into production when it did,” he explained. “I’m just being very frank about it ... at the end of last year, [Relativity] looked around, and they saw Universal was coming out with a Snow White. But they had a script that wasn’t really working, but they knew they wanted to try to keep that, so when they hired me, the first conversation we all had about that was, ‘How do we beat that other project?’ So it was literally something like, ‘We want to beat that other project. We are very, very motivated to do a Snow White project.’”

    “I pitched them a take on it,” he said, “and in the same meeting I pitched them a take on it, Tarsem was in the room, he said, ‘I like that take,’ the studio was in the room, they said, ‘We like that take,’ and that minute, they commenced me writing — this is December — and they opened the art department, they opened the costume department, and they started scouting locations. All in the same minute! It hadn’t even been written yet! It was all because there was a derby race. And it all happened to work. I happened to write a script that was good enough in a very short enough period of time to get Julia Roberts, and we didn’t then have to wait for art and costumes because they were already going. So it was a super-cool way to write a movie.”

    I thought this was supposed to be set in a medieval period, where'd they get a car?

    ‘Real Steel’ Helmer Shawn Levy To Direct Pinocchio Prequel ‘The Three Misfortunes Of Geppetto’ > The Playlist

    Deadline report that writer Michael Vukadinovich has sold a spec for a prequel to classic tale “Pinocchio,” entitled “The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto,” to 20th Century Fox and Levy’s production company 21 Laps, and Levy himself is now attached to direct the project. The script is drawing comparisons to “Big Fish” and “The Princess Bride,” and will follow the titular Geppetto, the creator of the wooden puppet who wanted to be a real boy, across a hard life as he tries to be with his one true love, a woman named Julia Moon. Because everyone’s favorite character in the story was, of course, not its wooden protagonist, but his elderly father figure. And we all had so many unanswered questions about him.
