I think when they say fairy tales it's the Brother's Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson type. I got the impression they want to do more of the Pixar original stories like UP
. Partly they claim that boys don't want to see traditional fairy tales, which is why they changed the title from Rapunzel
, hoping to fool the boys. You would think they make so much money off of that Princess racket that they would be cranking out a princess movie every month of the year. All my nieces went through the princess stage and they weren't even exposed to much Disney. I refused to take them to see the Little Mermaid
because the woman agrees to (literally) give up her voice to be with some guy. I am happy to report that none of them are still wearing their princess outfits in college, although one of them did wear her "lucky tiara" when she took her MCATS exam a couple of years ago.
