Fairy Tales Coming True...

Hi, I'm Lindsay, and I think I am becoming obsessed with fairy tales...

It all started a couple of months ago when I started watching 'Once Upon A Time' - a television show which combines fairy tales and classic children's stories with modern day life. As a child, I only ever really watched the Disney versions and now this series has made me interested in the original stories.

But it seems I am not the only one - alternate fairy tales have been making their way into cinemas in recent years, such as Snow White and the Huntsman, and the trend isn't slowing down.

Although not strictly a 'fairy tale', the Wizard of Oz is being retold in 'Oz The Great and Powerful', which will be released on 8th March - it looks fantastic!

Back to fairy tales, the story of Jack and the Beanstalk becomes 'Jack the Giant Slayer'on 22nd March. Judging from the trailer, I think it is safe to say that this will be action-packed...

Hansel and Gretel turn bad-ass in this retelling of the classic story - 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' is released on 22nd February.

And one to watch out for - Maleficent, the story of the wicked sorceress from 'Sleeping Beauty', played by Angelina Jolie. This isn't due for release until 2014 and there isn't a trailer just yet, but I'm sure this is a film which will be a must-see. 

P.S: Here is something for my wishlist...  


'The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm', a beautifully decorated hardback book containing vintage illustrations. This is being reprinted but it available to order from Waterstones for £24.99.
