And yet another Disney cartoon/fairy-tale comes to life. The fairy tale live version is running neck to neck with the superhero movie these days. Unlike the superhero movies, the fairy-tales have had more trouble finding an audience either because of the cartoon versions or just weak writing. These live versions try to include something unuque without deviating too much from the original but seem to fall flat or mediocre at best. Maleficent was good but not great, and Alice and Snow White were just bad. This actually looks very good, they've kept the general idea of the story and it doesn't look like they went campy or silly with the animal effects.
