Let’s take a look at a few tales Disney has adapted and compare them to their originals.
In the Brothers’ Grimm tale of Cinderella, her stepsisters lop off their feet to fit into the slippers.
What about Jiminy Cricket?
In the original Pinocchio tale, the unnamed cricket gets squashed with a mallet by puppet Pinocchio early in the story.
In the Grimm version of Snow White, the wicked Queen asks the hunter to bring her Snow White’s lungs and liver, not her heart.
He brings her a boar’s organs instead, and she boils and eats them.
At Snow White’s wedding, the bride and groom force her into red hot shoes and make her dance until she’s dead.
Better to leave alone the original versions of Winnie the Pooh, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
