Monday's Question of the Day (9)

Monday's Question of the Day is hosted by Eleni at /-LA FEMME READERS-/

What fairytale or Disney movie would you love to see re-created in a book?

My Answer:
This seems like a bit of an odd question, since most fairytale and Disney movies are based on books to begin with!

But I do enjoy fairytale retellings, so I guess that's essentially what the question is asking about. I'm not sure what hasn't already been done. Recently, I've seen retellings of Beauty and the Beast (Crazy Beautiful, Beastly), Cinderella (Ash), and East of the Sun and West of the Moon (Ice).

I've always liked story of The Snow Queen. A novelization based on that would be cool -- although I think I might've seen one of those around recently, too. (As for movie adaptations, it's not Disney, but the 2005 version of The Snow Queen is beautiful. It's like a painting come to life.)


  1. Good point! ;)

    I would love to see a modern day redo of Sleeping Beauty. Maybe she could go into a coma or something?

  2. I've thought about this question before -- the Snow Queen is a good idea. It would be cool to see a more personalized take on it, kind of like Wicked.
