What if Disney movies accurately presented their origin stories?
Well, we would not have the family friendly movies that we love today. They would be actually quite gruesome. So we are thankful to Disney for removing these horrific details from the movies.
However, today we are going to tell you about the stories these movies were based. No, we are not sorry for ruining your childhood either. Beware, as these might scar you forever.
Lets start with Ariel shall we?
In the original fairytale, Ariel is allowed to go on the surface when she turns 15 and she has to wear some specific things.
I am not sure, the prince would like the getup.
Did I forgot to mention that she turns into sea foam by the end?
Yeah, Not a very happy ending.
Next comes the classic princesses, Snow White.
Snow White is actually a 7-year-old for most of the movie. Yes, even when the Evil Queen asks her iconic question.
Because it is totally sane to compete with a kid right?
No, We didn’t forget The Evil Queen.
While She does die by falling off a cliff in the movie. In the actual story her end is a bit more….intense.
To put it simply, The Evil Queen is on fire!
Now comes Cinderella’s turn.
In the actual story, Cinderella actually got three dresses rather than one. To top it all off, her shoes were made of gold rather than glass.
Now, that is more like it.
Then we have her benevolent step-sisters.
Yes, the step sisters cut off part of their feet just to fit in the gold slipper and than their eyes were picked out by pigeons.
Are we sure Cinderella is the good one here?
How could we forget about everyones favorite Villain Maleficent?
Maleficent was actually a wise woman like all the other ‘fairies.’ She also kind of got the short end of the deal.
I get why she was so angry now.
Here comes the stretching.
Apparently, the story that Frozen is based upon has no Elsa but there is a boy name Kay who has a sister (Not really.) So that sister/friend goes on a journey to find him.
Yah, We don’t know either.
And thats about the gist of it.
