I agree on Rapunzel... And they didn't "ruin" it. They took the basic concept behind the sotry and created another one from it. The Disney movie has really few left of the book version in my opinion. And they're both good...
Yeah! Plus I don’t really think the original fairytale would work well in film form if directly adapted. It really HAD to be changed and quite a bit to work? It’s not a very long story and there needed to be character arcs as well as of course a way to make Rapunzel more proactive, and I think they did that fairly well and creatively.
A total ruin of the original Snow Queen story by Hans Christian Andersen. As usual, another doing of Disney.
I mean, if they’re not gonna stick to the original story plot why not at least change the characters names?
AHAHAHA THEY DID change them.
The movie uses NONE of the names from the original fairytale (Kai, Gerda, and Bae are the only named characters in the original, and yes those are not the names used in the film).
Ya I said that to refer to movies like Tangled… forgot to mention that.
It’s a pretty good thing they changed the original story there considering that I’m not sure Disney’s really up to handling a teen pregnancy plot in a princess movie.
And if they’d changed her name and not called her ‘Rapunzel’, people would have just wondered… why her name wasn’t Rapunzel because she’s in a fairytale about a girl with long golden hair being kept in a tower by a witch.
