We loved watching Disney movies as kids, but reading the original fairy tales might not be really appropriate unless you are a grown-up. That’s because these stories look more like horror stories than love stories. The princes are not so charming after all, and some princesses are not better either. This is why we are showing you 10 Disturbing REAL STORIES Behind DISNEY Fairy Tales.
We were already scared when watching “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” when her mother asked the hunter to come back with her heart and then tried to give her an apple because she was jealous of her beauty. But if you read the original tale, you’ll find out that this is not the only thing that she did to the poor princess. Her punishment is also terrifying, but we can say that she deserved it.
We all remember the rags-to-riches story of “Cinderella,” the poor servant who went to the ball and met the love of her life. But if you read the original story, you’ll find out the real reason why she lost her shoe. You’ll even hear about what her step sisters did to fit in the shoe and what happened to them when Cinderella got married. This is not a happy ending.
Stay tuned to hear about more real stories behind Disney fairy tales like Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, The Princess and the Frog, and Tangled.
