GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS - This was one of my favorite fairy tales growing up. After all, pre-school aged Emily dressed up as Goldie for Halloween with a big ol' blonde wig and a gingham dress. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I absolutely loved the Faerie Tale Theater version of this...which I admit, is where most of the inspiration for this list came from. But really, the Goldie in that is full of sass and hilarity. If done right it could be a really fun story because there's plenty to flesh out.
RUMPLESTILTSKIN - This one would certainly be a challenge. It features slightly unlikable characters and some pretty dark undertones (having the first born's safety in danger is certainly risky...) But I'm sure there's a light and fun spin that maybe could be had here? Plus they can inject a nice moral lesson about keeping one's promises and being honest and blah blah blah. But maybe they won't be able to since Shrek already wasted him.
THE PRINCESS WHO NEVER LAUGHED - Two princesses in a row that never experienced certain emotions! This one though was more to do with being brought up in a verrry strict kingdom and wasn't a result of some fluke she was born with. It's the female version of trying on shoes of every girl in the kingdom...but this time the first man to make her laugh wins. A much better contest!
THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES - This was absolutely one of my favorites growing up. Something was just so magical about the princesses being able to travel to a secret world every night that no one knew about... This one really could have a lot of potential. There's plenty of characters to play with, and lots of fun to be had.
Can you think of any more to add??
