Disney Live-Action Fairy Tales: Why Do They Stand Out?
For years, Disney’s animated adaptations of classic fairy tales and novels have done very well, to the point that many think of Disney’s tales as the definitive versions. Now it seems as though their live-action fairy tale adaptations are becoming more successful than the competition as well. Recently, Disney’s live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book has been a box-office smash and garnered extensive critical acclaim for its’ visuals and its’ storytelling. By comparison, Universal’s The Huntsman: Winter’s War has been a box-office disaster.
