  2. Neil Gaiman’s New Children’s Book Features Snow White Saving Sleeping Beauty (Feat. Smoochin’)

    Strong. Female. Characters.

    Neil Gaiman continues his streak of standing up for women in genre and just generally being the best by including a same-sex kiss between awesomely-developed characters Sleeping Beauty and Snow White in a new children's book.

  3. What Once Upon A Time Could (and Should) Be Doing Instead of Frozen

    Oh, OuAT… what happened to you?

    As Once Upon A Time embarks upon its fourth season by introducing the cast of Frozen to the people of Storybrooke, it may be difficult to remember that the show was once, you know, good.

  4. New Live Action Hansel & Gretel In The Works, Sadly Will NOT Have Jeremy Renner

    But it does have Neil Gaiman, so... fair trade-off.

    Were you hungering (jokes!) for another interpretation of the Brothers Grimm's Hansel and Gretel story? Because you're going to get one, and this time it might actually be a legitimately good film. No, really: Neil Gaiman is involved. It can't get much better than that.

  5. Zooey Deschanel Is Producing an Animated Fairy Tale Sitcom for Fox

    Olden Lore

    Kristen Wiig Cinderella is looking all judgey-judgey in this pic, but I actually have optimistic feelings about Queen of Everything. I just couldn't resist having her facial expression on The Mary Sue. I feel a very spiritual connection to it.

  6. Brothers Grimm Project Photos Are Haunting

    Here Be Dragons

    Colorblind German photographer Kilian Schoenberger has created a series of photographs titled "Brothers Grimm Project" where he captures eerie beauty throughout Europe that has the feel of the Grimm fairy tales.  All of Schoenberger's work is gorgeous but this series in particular is completely stunning.

  8. Coraline Director Henry Selick Is Doing a Fairy Tale Movie

    DO WANT

    Good news just in time for Halloween: Director Henry Selick, the stop-motion maestro behind Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and James and the Giant Peach, is doing a fairy tale movie! Or, to be more accurate, a movie based on a book based on fairy tales. But don't work yourself into a tizzy quite yet, Claymation fans. Because A Tale Dark & Grimm has one major difference from those other three Selick movies I mentioned: It'll be live-action.

  9. Watch the Trailer for the New Snow Queen Movie. No, Not Frozen. There’s Another One. [VIDEO]

    Olden Lore

    On the one hand, Snow Queen, by Russian studio Wizart Animation, looks a lot more accurate to the original fairy tale than Disney's Frozen, which bears only a passing resemblance to the Hans Christian Anderson story on which it is ostensibly based. On the other hand, Snow Queen looks bad. Like, direct-to-DVD bad. You win some, you lose some. Also: I see you there, lady pirate.

  10. Illustrator Rachael Wise Takes Fairy Tales To A Dark, Dark Place

    Olden Lore

    I always knew fairy tales are much darker than Disney would have you believe, but man, illustrator Rachael Wise takes it to a new level with her series of F***ed Up Tales. I've pulled a few of my favorites to show you, and if you like the shock to your inner child you can see the rest at her Tumblr. Warning: The last pic features nudity (non-sexualized; it's just the Little Mermaid without her Disney-created seashell bra) and some gore. Stop at Snow White if you'd rather not see it. (Thanks, anonymous tipster!)
