Fairytales Live
    Welcome to a blog dedicated to fairytales. Here you will find stills and gifs from many fairytale adaptations, information about new fairytale movies, reviews of fairytale retellings and much more.            

If you're looking for something general, click on "General Tags". If you have a specific tale/adaptation in mind, click on "Fairytales A-L"/"Fairytales M-Z".

I will not ask you for forgiveness. What I have done is unforgivable. I was so lost in hatred and revenge. I never dreamed that I could love you so much. You stole what was left of my heart. And now I’ve lost you f o r e v e r.

I know it's a lot to ask, but could you make some gifs of Rike Kloster from "The Princess and the Pea"? I use her for a pb and haven't found any gifs of her anywhere and you make really good gifs

Hi! I just read your ask! Kind of late I know - but tumblr didn’t let me know that I have a new message. I’ve been meaning to do a “Princess and the Pea” gifset for quite a while (together with my other favorite “6 auf einen Streich” fairytales). Unfortunately, at the moment I lack time and energy to do so. My job is draining me and I am glad that I have time sometimes to at least feed up the queue for my blogs. Sorry I cannot give you a more optimistic answer but I don’t want to give empty promises. Thank you for understanding.

I have long said that in order for any comedy to truly succeed as a story, there has to be meat beneath the jokes. There has to be that moment when it is not funny any more.

This. This is that moment.



Day 12: A princess
Cinderella - Into the Woods

His and Her Royal Highness

Is this real?  

No, it’s a mass hallucination on the part of American children of the ’90s.

(Or a 1995 made-for-TV version of Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, if you prefer.)

This was the best.

this is the only version of cinderella that matters

Interracial parents and Filipino son. Never ever did I question whether or not they were a family.


First of a three-part series of spreads of my take on Rapunzel set in India. The book is geared toward a younger audience so I went with younger protagonists as well!

i can’t believe it took a decade and a half for them to put the rogers & hammerstein version of cinderella on broadway…

i guess it’s excusable for the youngsters born after 2000


but i haven’t seen any posts yet paying tribute to the original movie.


i mean, do you all not remember this glorious 90s masterpiece?


a film which literally defied genetics


i mean as a child i didn’t even think twice about how whoopi golberg and victor garber somehow created this royal filipino cutie


i mean maybe we were all too distracted by his flawless duets with brandy, but was he adopted? why did no one ever mention this ever? 


i’ll tell you why it’s because race or class doesn’t determine who you can love in fairytales


i mean what a magical message broadway has inherited:


"keep building up impossible hopes! impossible things are happening everyday!"



people dont blog about the princess bride enough

she doesn’t even try to walk down she just dives head first onto a fucking hill buttercup what even god i love this movie

↳ classic disney movies [x]

Broadway’s newest princess, Keke Palmer

Well I think we’ve been married almost a full day. And I don’t believe we’ve had our first dance.
