No one remembers 1990's Happily Ever After. That’s because it was a garbage sequel to Snow White made by a totally different studio that, for financial reasons, only screened the movie in France. But before anyone knew it was going to suck, game developer SOFEL had begun working on a tie-in to the film for the…
Go home, Disney. You’re drunk.
The Washington Post has a fascinating article on the work of linguists who are looking at every line of dialogue from Disney princess movies and analyzing them for their representations of women. The results are mixed, to say the least.
Unless they’re enrolling at MIT before the age of five, you won’t find a single kid who doesn’t prefer pop-up books over boring two-dimensional tomes. And Yusuke Oono’s elaborate pop-ups that open to reveal detailed 360-degree scenes are sure to be even more popular on book report day.
Neil Gaiman's upcoming children's book, The Sleeper and the Spindle, is a richly illustrated collaboration with artist Chris Riddell that retells the story of Sleeping Beauty. But this time the princess is rescued not by a prince's kiss, but by a queen's.
You can never accuse the Disney corporation of missing a merchandising opportunity. Crashing the money trains of both Frozen and the wedding industry, tonight Disney and designer Alfred Angelo unveiled the latest line of princess-inspired wedding dresses.
Fairy tales and folklore come from a variety of sources, changing as they are told and retold. And some of these tales have been inspired by real historical figures, whose lives either formed the genesis of the story or altered it along the way. So what is fact and what is fiction?
The sky is blue, water is wet, and the digital world is oriented landscape. But almost 30 years ago, that last truth wasn't exactly self-evident. Back then, Apple and others were experimenting with vertically-oriented computers. And it made more sense than you might think.
Artist Joe Alexander has created this gorgeous set of prints showing just how iconic the silhouettes Disney's animation has created. And my how they loom.
This weekend sees the release of The Legend of Hercules — and then later this year, we'll see a second Hercules movie. This seems to happen a lot: everybody gets the same bright idea at the same time, and competing films are rushed into production. Here are a ton of cases where weirdly similar films did battle.
Shoe designer Kobi Levi designs all manner of quirky footwear—flamingo shoes with one stiletto tucked under, shark shoes that open into toothy maws in the back. His latest series, titled "Witch-Craft," pays tribute to three classic Disney villains through the art of the high heel.
Yudi Chen has a series of wonderfully stylized fairy tale illustrations with one important difference: the genders of all of the characters have been reversed. That means that the Beast must win the heart of Beau, the evil king demands the heart of his stepson Snow White, and Rapunzel has the most amazing beard you've…
We've seen so many iterations of Snow White over the last few years, but it's always lovely to return to Walt Disney's iconic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. These production illustrations, created by Gustaf Tenggren, the film's chief illustrator, go a long way toward highlighting the storybook wonder that made that…
Cult Movie Worship is back with Spanish Snow White, a playful droid, Snowpocalypse, Schoolgirlpocalypse and the terrible, horrible creature known as Wormface! Behold the indie splendor.
Today at Comic-Con we spotted this entourage of malefactors running as some kind of Disney Injustice League. The idea of Gaston scheming with the hunter from Bambi and The Horned King from The Black Cauldron is an absolute hoot.
Sleeping Beauty isn't known for her high levels of activity, but with these running costumes, she and the other Disney princesses might get a different reputation. Plus, the sweat-wicking, anti-odor material keeps your costume looking fresh, even when you're drenched in sweat.
In the upcoming film Snow White and the Huntsman, that classic fairy tale receives a modern rejiggering complete with a guest appearance by Thor and (hopefully) a golem made out of poison apples.
Not content to star merely in Once Upon a Time, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Mirror, Mirror (not to mention all those Fables comics), Snow White brings her songbird-summoning voice and lips as red as blood to the rest of 2012's big movies, from Prometheus to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
We need Snow White and the Huntsman to be good. It's moved past mere desire to a full-on burning inflammation in our fantasy loins. Why? Perhaps it's because what we've seen in the trailers so far looks pretty damn good. We were raised on Beastmaster, Willow, Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, but there's been a fantasy dry…
