Classic fairy tale takes Disney to a winter wonderland

Frozen is a heavily rewritten take on Hans Christian Andersen’s 1845 tale. Those familiar with it won’t find a lot of the original story left standing. That might not be a bad thing.

Oz the Great and Powerful

James Franco books a return trip to Oz in Sam Raimi’s fantasy prequel

The massive success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland three years ago kicked off an at-times wearying string of fairy tale updates (Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Huntsman, Mirror Mirror, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Jack the Giant Slayer, ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”). That film’s $330 million domestic box office certainly incentivized Disney to come up with more family fantasy reboots. Oddly enough, instead of dipping into the deep well of already Disneyfied fairy tales, the company has decided to go with a story made famous by crosstown rivals at MGM.

Disney and Pixar crown a medieval princess for the 21st century

In its surprisingly short existence (Toy Story came out in 1995), Pixar Animation Studios has rewritten the book on animation in general and computer animation in particular. When the plucky little company entered the big time less than 20 years ago, digital animation was a soulless enterprise suitable for trendy soft drink commercials and little else. Pixar not only contributed to a great leap forward in technology, it revitalized the animation industry by refocussing on the art and craft of storytelling.

John Carter

Get your ass to Mars. ... Or not. It’s a long way and not always worth the trip

John Carter is a perfectly good action adventure. Unfortunately, it’s probably not good enough to revive a nearly 100-year-old franchise that’s had little success breaking out of its literary roots. Fans of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ swashbuckling source novels may be more impressed than they’d have thought, but it seems unlikely that the general public will soon be consumed by John Carter fever based on Disney’s fair-to-middling fantasy flick.
