Disney movies vs. oringal story/stories

I’m going to go mostly with Fairytales but I might also mention non-fairy tale  stories


Snow White

She’s 14 in the movie 7 in the oringal (2nd editon) story

the “Wicked Queen” in Snow White tries to kill her 2 other times before the apple 1)once with an corset,  and then 2)a comb

the prince in the oringal story falls in love with a suppose dead princess

there’s no kiss.. only the prince’s servants moving the coffin dislodges the apple

Cinderella..not much difference..there since Disney’s Cinderella is based on Perrault’s verison and Perrault’s version was for the nobilty hence the coach/godmother/etc. The Grimm (and any other version) were for the common people.

Sleeping Beauty..3 works: Grimm’s Briar Rose, Perrault’s “Beauty in the Woods”, and the Ballet. I just remember that in one of the 2 (or both? can’t remember) there are 12 good fairies. the 12th fairy hides behind a curtain. Aurora is the name of “Beauty in the Wood’s” daughter and Briar Rose (Grimm Version) is the name of princess herself. Not to mention that I think that in one version the Prince’s mother is an ogre.  In an earlier then Perrault’s version its rape and pregancy and the babies to wake Talia up.

The Little Mermaid:

The human world isn’t forbidden in the story. When a mermaid reaches 15, they can rise to the surface and see. But in the main story TLM herself doesn’t get the prince. The prince marries a temple girl who he thinks saves him. She does in a way get legs..but she still has remains of her tail. So that its very painful for her to walk

Beauty&the Beast:

1) in the oringal story the villians were sisters of Beauty. the Suitor as villian comes from the black and white talkie movie called La Belle and the Bete

2)there aren’t any humans-as-objects its either invisble servants or hands. The humans-as-objects comes from a black-and-white “Talkie” movie.

3)in some versions of the story Beauty is a princess by birth.


2 genies.. one in the lamp, one in a ring

the princess in the oringal is so stupid. She doesn’t know of the lamp’s importance so that the villian got it via a “new lamps for old lamps” trick

of course the oringal Aladdin takes place in China, not India (I say India..since where else would you see an elephant used during a royal parade?)


In the oringal story Mulan did have a brother but the brother was too young to fight. She not discovered until after the war.


101 Dalmations

In the oringal story there are 3 main adult dogs. Pongo, “Missy” (Pongo’s wife) and Perdita, Perdita was gotten because the vet was worried that Missy woudn’t have enough milk for 15 puppies. Perdita’s puppies were brought by Cruella. Perdita gets her own puppies back and then there is Perdita’s love who is the 1st dog in one hundred and ONE Dalmatians.
