The Dark And Disturbing Original Stories Behind Your Favorite Disney Films

The infinite magic of Disney films framed our childhood. Most girls daydream about being beautiful princesses and living happily ever after. And most boys fantasize about becoming brave and powerful princes who would protect the princess from all perils and rule his kingdom blissfully. Children are raised on cheerful fairy tales with happy ends, and they believe in a world where happiness reigns supreme. All of that is due to the traditional sweet fairy tales that Disney referenced for animated movies.

However, the happy endings in many of Disney’s famous films are frequently different from the original stories that they took influence. From The Little Mermaid to Cinderella, the origins behind your childhood films are more frightening than you might think. Torture, hanging, and scorching feet… – these are a few brutal details Disney leaves away when adapting century-old fairytales for the film.

Here are some of the original stories behind your favorite Disney movies, but be warned: not all of them end happily in Hollywood.
