FAIRY-TALE FORUM

For those of you who haven’t heard, author Shonna Slayton and I have started a shiny new group on Facebook called Fairy-Tale Forum. If you’re not part of it yet, please come on over and join! We have lots of fun stuff planned, and hope to see some fun fairy-tale-ish things from the rest of you as well!Beauty-and-the-Beast-fairy-tale

This week we have been having an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with editor and fairy-tale blogger Tahlia Kirk (Timeless Tales Magazine, anyone?!). She is so talented, I can’t even tell you. Please head over to our group and ask her whatever you’d like . . . she’s very responsive and so very fun to chat with!

  2. I love Beauty and the Beast! It is my favorite fairy tale and Disney movie. My favorite character is Belle because I can relate to her book-loving personality. I also love Lumiรจre because he is funny and has a great accent! I am going to see the new movie tonight and I hope it doesn’t disappoint!

  3. B&B is my second favorite fairy tale, after The Twelve Dancing Princesses. ๐Ÿ˜€ *frolics in all the fairytale things*

  4. Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorites. Especially “Beauty” by Robin McKinley. I will definitely be seeing the movie! I love how brave, intelligent, and accepting Belle is.

  5. I like B&B as a fairy tale, and it is one of my favorites among the “popular” tales (And a lot of my favorite obscure tales are in its family), but I’ve yet to find a retelling that I love. Like – there’s one or two – but, on the whole, because the original tale doesn’t have any issues – the plot is cohesive, the romance is a good role model, and the message is sound. For me, retellings of the story feel redundant and unnecessary. I like what Ever After High did with the tale, though, and I recently learned that my favorite retelling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses – “Princess Curse” by Merrie Haskel – was also a retelling of B&B (which I didn’t notice because it was filtered through Hades and Persephone). Also, the B&B retelling has been my favorite so far out of Jenni James’ Fairy Tale Collection.

    I won’t be going to see the movie. Even if I wanted to, I don’t have the money or a ride to get there…

  6. Beauty and the Beast has always been tied with The Little Mermaid as my absolute favorite fairytale/Disney movie. I have always admired Belle, always wanted to be like her when I was a little girl! She is brave, smart, caring, and, most importantly,she loves books ๐Ÿ˜. I would like to see the movie, but I will probably not be able to see it until it is out on dvd.
