“Grimm” And Bear It

2012 is the 200th anniversary of Grimm’s fairy tales. Films, books, and plays are being adapted to celebrate this bicentennial. British fantasy author Philip Pullman just published Fairy Tales From the Brothers Grimm, a retelling of 50 of the stories originally published in 1812. In January Paramount will release Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and in 2014  Maleficent, the Sleeping Beauty story told from the point of view of the evil fairy (starring Angelina Jolie) is being released by Walt Disney Pictures. Several Cinderella films are being developed and a new version of Cinderella is coming to Broadway in January. See the rest of the Wall Street Journal article here. And check out the EPL catalog for additional titles by the Brothers Grimm.
