We know them and we love them, and quite frankly; we just can’t get enough of them! From being read to as a child before bedtime, to reading to our own children at bedtime: fairy tales are all around us! The greatest craze lately is watching our favorite fairy tales come to life on the big screen through all sorts of new films and features! Although we couldn’t possible EVER choose a favorite fairy tale (obviously), here is a list of our top 10 favorite film adaptations of some wonderful fairy tales. Take a look and see if yours made our list!
So we know that Shrek TECHNICALLY isn’t based on one SPECIFIC fairy tale, but this film is such a staple in our animated classics, that we couldn’t bear to make a list without it! Shrek is such an original tale that creates a story using at least ONE part of every fairy tale known to the human race! Forever a classic!
It doesn’t get any better than Robin Williams as Peter, Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell and Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook, does it? The story of Peter Pan comes to LIFE (with many interesting twists and turns) in this classic film that we love oh so very much.
