Boy oh boy, just wait until you get a load of these horrific fairy tale stories. You thought that The Lion King and The Hunchback of Notre Dame were super sad and grim Disney movies? Well, then you are in for a vicious surprise. Here is our list of 10 Disney Films That Have Morbid Origin Stories. Forget about bawling your eyes out over Bambi...the origin stories for these Disney films will have you reaching for a box of tissues as well as picking up the phone to schedule a therapy appointment. Seriously, we can’t believe that these were actual fairy tales that people read. If we grew up with these versions of fairy tales, we would have ended up quite differently, let us tell you…
We will warn you before you go into this list: these 10 stories are forever going to be ruined for you forevermore. We are not joking. Some of the origin stories for these Disney films are downright sad, terrifying, and just plain twisted. We’re talking about things like kidnappings, murders, suicide...the list goes on and on. These are not stories that you would catch on a Disney marathon; they are more like R-rated horror films. All right, enough talking; let’s get down to business. Are you ready to learn more about Ariel the Little Mermaid, Aladdin’s back-stabbing brother, the fate of Cinderella’s evil stepsisters, and what the original Goldilocks looked like? Then here we go.

7 Little Red Riding Hood
6 Tangled (Rapunzel)
5 Sleeping Beauty
4 The Little Mermaid
3 Hunchback of Notre Dame
2 Snow White
This story was seriously messed up. The evil stepsisters were even more evil in the Grimm brothers’ version. In a fruitless attempt to fit their feet into the glass slipper, one sister chops off her heel, while the other chops off her toes. Yeah, it doesn’t work. Not only that, but they stop Cinderella from marrying the prince, but crows end up gouging the evil stepsisters’ eyes out. Ouch! So in the end, Cinderella is still screwed over and she never even gets to have that happy ending (although watching her step sisters suffer like that probably provided a bit of vengeful happiness.) Just another fun tidbit about Cinderella is that the voice of the evil stepmother was the same voice for Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty. Hah! The vileness continues! Cinderella was made into a 2015 live-action film, but received a lot of flak for showcasing a promotional poster in which Cinderella’s (Lily James’) waist was impossibly tiny.
