Hello my fellow fairy tale fans! There are several fairy tale inspired films coming out within the next few months that I am extremely excited to share with you. Check out these trailers if you are interested and let me know which movies you want to see. Personally, I plan to watch all three of these films in the theater .
Into The Woods coming out January 2015
This musical, which features several beloved story book characters such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella, brings back very special memories for me. I was on the props crew for this play in high school and proudly helped build a full sized cow for Jack and his mother. Being involved in theater was a big part of my life back then and I can’t wait to see this on the big screen. The movie stars Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep so it has to be great, right?
Cinderella coming out March 2015
Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, and Maleficent have had their stories retold in live action, so it is only fair that the house maid- turned-princess gets her opportunity next spring. Since this particular version is from Disney, I have high expectations for the movie to be wonderful. In related news, Netflix has recently released a few Cinderella inspired tales (Ella Enchanted and Ever After), which I plan to review in the near future. Stay tuned for that post.
Pan coming out July 2015
Our favorite boy that never grows up is back in a brand new movie this summer. Ever since I viewed the disappointing retelling of this famous story, Hook featuring Dustin Hoffman and the late Robin Williams (I know I’m probably one of the only people on earth that wasn’t a fan), I’ve been eager for someone else to try their hand at making another version. Hopefully this one will be better.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and, if you are interested, I have a “Frozen Inspired Christmas Decor” post on my other blog Reels and Writings.
