6 Stories Disney Should Animate Next

Walt Disney animation did not invent the fairy tale, but they definitely redefined the genre.  In fact, generations have been raised on Disney’s animated stories, from Snow White in 1937 to Disney’s latest adaptation of the Snow Queen – Frozen.  Many popular stories from the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen made it to the silver screen, courtesy of Disney animators, but here are 6 timeless stories we’d love to see Disney animate next:

1. Goldilocks and the 3 Bears

Goldilocks

From tasting porridge to napping in beds, this quick and short tale could be elaborated and its short story-line deftly re-imagined and expanded.  Besides, who wouldn’t want to try Baby Bear’s porridge on their next visit to Fantasyland?

2. Hansel & Gretel

This classic Grimm fairy tale has all the attributes of a fantastic story. We’d love to see what Tim Burton could do with this gem in his hands.

3. Aesop’s Fables

Not only do these stories have a morale, they are also very entertaining and thought-provoking. Perhaps Aesop’s fables could be tailored to children aged 6-9 (wink wink, Disney Junior)!

4.  The Paper Bag Princess

Princess Elizabeth is one tough princess (we’re thinking on par with Mulan and Merida)! This beautiful children’s tale could embody the empowered heroine princess very well.

5. American Tall Tales

While Disney’s Melody Time featured Pecos Bill and American Legends included Paul Bunyan and John Henry, why not put ALL the legends together in a sort of Marvel’s Avenger series franchise? While you’re at it, throw in Calamity Jane, and Slue-Foot-Sue as well. Oh yeah, and why not let us meet the characters in Frontierland? Thank you and you’re welcome!

6. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

Because if we gave a mouse a cookie, he’ll definitely want a glass a milk! If Disney gave us this contemporary classic story in animated form, we’d probably give up a lot more chocolate chip cookies!
