    12. Ruth says:

      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. tracy says:

      my favourite is snow white!

    25. Lisa says:

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

    26. Fila says:

      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. rob says:

      Hansel and Gretel for me

    28. Michelle Williamson says:

      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…

    140. Joshua says:

      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.
