    6. SorrelFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 1:23pm PST

      Hmmm, does Shrek count as a fairly tale? Love it!

      Thanks for the contest. Looks like this one would be a cool one to go to.

    7. VivianFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 1:25pm PST

      Favourite fairy tale has to be Sleeping Beauty.

    8. matthew mFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 1:56pm PST

      Any of the Grimm stuff. I like the old stuff before it’s been cleaned up.

    9. Michael KwanFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 1:57pm PST

      Tough choice. Tortoise and the Hare is pretty good.

    10. SusanFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:05pm PST

      Alice in Wonderland!

    11. michelleFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:05pm PST

      hansel and gretel 🙂

    12. RuthFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:34pm PST

      A lot of fairy tales creeped me out – I remember loving ‘alternative’ fairy tales with plucky tomboy princesses, especially ‘An Ordinary Princess’ by M.M. Kaye, which I’ve been trying to track down ever since

    13. tracyFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:38pm PST

      my favourite is snow white!

    14. KarenFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:38pm PST

      The Three Little Pigs

    15. KercheFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:46pm PST

      Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Little Mermaid” 🙂

    16. SanazFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:52pm PST

      Hansel and Gretel is my favourite

    17. TriciaFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:52pm PST

      Alice in wonderland!

    18. HayleyFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 2:59pm PST

      Its a new take on Rapunzel but Tangled would have to be my faourite.

    19. AyanFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 3:13pm PST

      Im so excited to see this! Wow!

    20. AyanFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 3:13pm PST

    23. JessicaFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 3:52pm PST

      My favourite fairytale is probably cinderella! I would love to see this movie – one of the scenes were actually shot in an old workplace of mine – so I’m super psyched to see how its incorporated into the movie!

    24. TeresaFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 4:32pm PST


    25. LisaFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 4:38pm PST

      I can’t wait to see this movie…the trailer looks really good.

    26. FilaFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 4:39pm PST

      I love them all! Black and white old Czech fairytale about “Princes with gold star on their forhead”, or beautiful Russian “Jack Frost” we were watching every Christmas as kids or new fairytales like “Falling star”. It would be great if there would be made more fairytales so we can feel the magic which brings us to the beautiful and amazing imaginative world at least for a little while.

    27. robFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 5:13pm PST

      Hansel and Gretel for me

    28. Michelle WilliamsonFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 5:26pm PST

      The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch, but if you don’t consider that a fairytale, I’ll say Rumplestiltskin. Never was sure how to spell it though…

    29. KellyFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 6:03pm PST


    30. AgaselFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 6:30pm PST

      Snow White’s my favourite story. Although I can never get all 7 Dwarves right.

      Little Mermaid! =)

    32. JasFriday, February 25th, 2011 — 6:57pm PST

    50. CathySaturday, February 26th, 2011 — 2:36pm PST

      Favorite farytale is Peter Pan. The idea that magic fairy dust can make you fly and there’s a land where you don’t have to grow up…love it!

    51. stephanieSaturday, February 26th, 2011 — 4:13pm PST


    52. AmeliaSaturday, February 26th, 2011 — 5:02pm PST

    55. JeffSaturday, February 26th, 2011 — 6:06pm PST

      My favourite fairytale would have to be one about dragons. Not sure which one top choose but it would have to have dragons in it.

    56. ElaineSaturday, February 26th, 2011 — 6:39pm PST

      Sleeping beauty 🙂

    57. MeganSaturday, February 26th, 2011 — 11:39pm PST

    58. MelSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 8:59am PST

      my fav would have to be Alice in Wonderland with all the kewl characters and costumes.

      my family and I stumbled on the shoot last year when we were at Van Dusen Gardens.

    59. RobinSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 10:53am PST

      Jack and the Branstalk. Although I prefer modern retellings of old tales even more… like Into the Woods (Sondheim) or Beauty (Robin McKinley).

    60. RobinSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 10:55am PST

      Arg. Beanstalk… not Branstalk!

    61. Amy W.Sunday, February 27th, 2011 — 10:59am PST

      Emperor’s New Clothes!

    62. NevenkaSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 11:16am PST

      When I was a child my father read the stories to me. “The Girl Without Hands” (“Das Mädchen ohne Hände”) left the biggest mark.

    63. JessicaSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 12:03pm PST

      There are so many good ones, old and new. I think I would choose The Three Little Pigs.

    66. JeanieSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 3:00pm PST

      After taking children’s literature in university and learning the ‘dark side’ about fairy tales, I don’t like fairy tales anymore… :S

    67. JoyceSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 5:00pm PST

      Favourite fairy tale? The Goose Girl from Grimm’s Fairy tales, but I thoroughly enjoyed the entire collection including the sometimes very surprising (and usually gruesome) endings.

    68. JoyceSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 7:23pm PST

    73. DanielleSunday, February 27th, 2011 — 9:49pm PST

      My favorite fairy-tale I was a kid was definitely Peter Pan/Beauty and the Beast. Although as a grown up I have to go with the genius Sondheim compilation of a bunch of fairy tales Into the Woods.

    139. Lisa DruetThursday, March 3rd, 2011 — 9:21am PST

      My favorite fairly tale would have to be Little Red Riding Hood. I can still remember my babysitter Lynn would tell us that story and scare the heck out of me…I am still obsessed with werewolves and such creatures of the nite….woo ha ha

    140. Hanne-SophieThursday, March 3rd, 2011 — 10:42am PST

      The Ugly Duckling

    141. MariaThursday, March 3rd, 2011 — 11:43am PST

      My favourite fairy tale is Little Red Riding Hood. I used to read this story to my kids when they were little.

    142. HilaryThursday, March 3rd, 2011 — 1:14pm PST

      My favourite fairy tale is, of course, Little Red Riding Hood! What could be scarier than dark woods, all alone, and having your dear sweet grandma turn into your nightmare? I hope to find out at the movie!!

    143. JoshuaThursday, March 3rd, 2011 — 2:06pm PST

      As a kid I would have to say my favorite fairy tale has to be Cinderella. Every young gay boy wishes to be Cinderella. Relating with her struggles at such a young age. I would make my babysitter play this movie every day for 5 years, because it was what made me smile through the teasing.

    144. LindaThursday, March 3rd, 2011 — 2:31pm PST

      beauty and the beast. old fairy tales were always so good.

      Favourite fairytale? That’s easy – it’s most definitely Snow White!

      My favorite fairy tale has got to be Beauty & The Beast, partially due to the amazing 3d+2d rendered ball room dancing scene in the movie!
