Disney vs. Grimm Fairytales (Rough Draft) Fairytales have majorly altered throughout history in a variety of disturbing ways. Grimm’s fairytales were known as gruesome parables that spoke of harsh realities and were told to people of all ages. Disney is identified by their hopeful and imaginary stories aimed at the audience of children. The reasoning behind this stark contrast of fairy tales is for numerous diverse explanations. Disney, alike many other popular storytellers, want these known stories to be friendly, animated, and with an intended audience of children.
There are stereotypical and exaggerated costumes that help to emphasise the composer's satirical perceptions of the context of 1995. Amy Heckerling uses visual irony, where an image is presented but a different and separate comment is made in comparison to the image. This irony is established when untypical and totally abnormal shots are being displayed of expensive belongings and attractive teenagers during the film's introduction. The voice-over contradicts what is being shown, "My life is way normal." This film technique displays the way the director has opposed what is being said and mocks the social context and displays the satire within Clueless.
Cookie Cutter Heroes, a trope seen constantly through gaming, suggesting that for a game to be successful in the 21st Century that the hero has to fit a certain amount of traits, such as being strong, straight, white and of course, male.

In addition, the search for self-identity is viewed as important in today’s society. Thus, these confliction attributes lead the reader to identify Edna as morally ambiguous. Categorizing complex characters as purely good or purely evil is not one of the easiest of tasks. As a result, it is best to characterize them as morally ambiguous. In Edna’s case, she is morally ambiguous due to her romantic affiliations and role-defying actions, but both are immensely vital to Kate Chopin’s “The Awakening” as a complete whole.
Not only this, but the transformation of the evil queen into an old witchy lady with an apple is also terrifying. This, according to Nelson changes in the film Cinderella. In Cinderella, the evil stepmother starts to bring forth a more externalized version of evil. Nelson writes “Rather than embellishing the villainy of the principal antagonist, as was the case in Snow White, Disney chooses to soften the Perrault original” (Nelson, 99). While arguing this, Nelson also argues that the use of evil side-kicks helps to
When we are children we grow up watching movies that transport us to another world. Take Disney movies, typically Disney movies transport you to a faraway land with interesting individuals that tend to on adventures; take Disney’s motion animated picture The Little Mermaid, within this movie we are given the opportunity to see how living underwater is “better”. That if you living on land there are many problems you generally would not find under the sea.

She goes on to say “Critics suggest that Shakespeare's depiction of fortune in the comedies relies in large part on medieval and Renaissance perceptions of this obscure force. Fortune is generally a deceiver in the comic plays, set to test the virtue of those seeking favor or gain, and stands in contrast with the providential designs of God….. this is apparent in comedies such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (Lee, 2004, para. 2). At first, she explains briefly about why fortune was used, as well as the motivation behind it, but then she goes on to talk about what fortune truly means. She states fortune stands in contradiction with the plans of God, and more specifically goes against what is actually expected.

Tim Burton is an animator, screenwriter, director, and illustrator, best known for the dark, twisted, cinematic flair that his films contain, along with a smooth blend of horror and fantasy. Inspired by animator Walt Disney, and writers Roald Dahl and Edgar Allan Poe, it’s no surprise that many of Burton’s films focus on fairy tales. But, unlike many fairy tales, Burton’s fairy tales contain dark tones and moods that many fairy tales lack. Burton emphasizes these dark tones by manipulating lighting to emphasize the dark aspects of fairy tales that many adaptations simply glance over. In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands, and Alice in Wonderland, Burton uses high key lighting, low key lighting, and back lighting to emphasize
