If you've managed a trip to the cinema recently, you might have noticed some recent releases have taken classic fairy tales to a new level.  Both Mirror, Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman retell parts of the Snow White story.

This is just the beginning of a Hollywood obsession with fairy tales - over the next 4 years over fifty films based on classic tales are set for release, including Cinderella (2), Peter Pan (4), the Wizard of Oz (7 plus a TV series and a silver screen adaptation of the musical Wicked), Hansel and Gretl (3), Sinbad (4) and many more.

Some may sink without trace, but if you enjoy a good old fairy tale, look forward to being indulged over the coming years.  Don't expect to take the children along to enjoy these films though, many are being rated PG, 12 and higher, as the various twists make them too black for youngsters, include modern vices in contemporary settings, or have underlying themes of wickedness!
