Took me long enough to finally do this-it's July and I promised June at the latest...Anyway, today I'm going to talk a bit about Disney. I'll admit to having a love-hate relationship with the company. This relates to the simple fact that most of the stories from the Disney Animated Canon are based on older works. Also the fact that anything that's hit the movie or television screen takes over as the dominant story that people remember. I get so tired of people going "There was a book?" when told about the original source. Like I said, Disney does this a lot. Now, when it comes to fairy tales, one of the fun things about them is how different cultures play the same tales, their tropes, and their plots. The fact that the tales have been "sanitized" by Disney doesn't bother me-that's been going on for centuries. It's what I mentioned earlier about adaptation displacement. Also how loose the adaptations get-Aladdin comes to mind (and at least they admitted that Frozen was inspired by the fairy tale and not based on it).
