No, they did not. The reason I became disillusioned was because Disney had never told me about what comes after the happily ever after part and i felt betrayed and misled.

PCP's point stands even more when considering the sequels...We feel betrayed and misled! Laughing

Well, that's because you're taking a mature point of view for something that was never meant for people over the age of eight. They're SUPPOSED to have happy endings, for the purpose Disney intended. The originals, were SUPPOSED to have scary endings, for a different purpose.

For the sake of harmony, consider them two different stories completely. I know that I was delighted to read the originals and discover the 'real' story. And I still like to watch the Disney versions. I consider them the 'abridged' version, with all the really nasty bits taken out.

Also, you can read Fables, which also gives a sort-of 'after the happily ever after'.

I quite enjoy Fables. It's a great graphic novel series. I have to admit I have a thing for the Wolf. Smile

As for the Twisted Princesses, I think I love Mulan and Aurora best. What an interesting and unique idea this artist had.

I like the Mulan peice the best, because of the way Mushu comes from the tatoo.

P.S. The cricket is sooo cute.

Edit: Just saw Nala peice she looks awesome.

Not sure if this beats out the new Alice in Wonderland movie or not in terms of disturbing. Gotta read the artist's story for it. SO looking forward to that movie...

Totally missed the white rabbit's foot when I first saw that Alice piece the ohter day! What a nice touch.

Also like that Star Wars series -- thanks for posting!
