One of my top favorite fairy tales! Stilled pissed that Disney butchered it to make that "Frozen" movie.Rage  Was really hoping they were going back to the kind of fantasy films like "Beauty and the Beast" or "Cinderella" like they used to do.

"Frozen" is so different from The Snow Queen that they're only barely, barely related.

True, but at the time I got all excited thinking Disney was doing one of my most favorite fairy tales...and got seriously bummed out by the end result. That and the talking snowman just really got me mad.

Yeah, I can understand that. The Snow Queen is a really deep, really complex fairy tale, though. A bit much for a Disney movie :)

Well, so is most of the fairy tales they already did movies of. The old-school Cinderella or Snow White is not meant for younger kids like their Disney counterparts.

Still, I would LOVE to see Disney do "The 7 Swans", or "Allerleirauh" or 'Donkey-Skin' as it's sometimes called, but that one starts on a 18 and up note.
