Disney vs. 7 early fairytales
The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up). Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<
But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales. Especially Bluebeard. We need a Bluebeard adaptation.
Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself.
The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away.
"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this
I am so happy about this post, you have no idea.
I bought a really big volume of a collection of The Grimms’ fairytales a few years back and it was pretty hard to get through. I got to around page 50 or so of the 400-page thing and quit - every single female character in it is either a naive victim, an evil by default or the embodiment of narcissism.
every single time. :I
Just one week left to get Broken Telephone!
There are just a straight up butt-ton of comics that come with this thing so I made this helpful animation to help explain what’s available!
GUYS, THEY ARE SO CLOSE! O V O
This just in professional animators who have endured years of rigorous training are still figuring out how to design and animate girls. It’s very difficult, and nobody in the history of the company has yet to figure it out. Please be patient with them, or you may hurt their feelings
to be fair no one has ever been able to draw a woman in the history of mankind. nor have they been able to even capture a woman on film. im highly skeptical that women even exist. one blurry photograph in the woods does not prove anything.
I did it! I did the thing!
Well, a portion of the thing. Here’s about 40 seconds of my reboard of Let It Go (aka all of tonight’s work). Done with ball-point pen and white out on index cards.
