It's time to stop putting your foot in your own mouth, and time to start putting it into someone else's. The Evil Queen who torments the innocent Snow White seems like a good place to start.
Here's your golden opportunity (slash poisoned apple, take your pick): UK fashion designer Kobi Levi has unveiled her "Witch-Craft" line of shoes, celebrating fierce heels and fiercer Disney villains.
Three ladies of darkness are featured in Levi's collection of leather heels, which she calls "wearable sculpture": Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" and Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty." Get More »
These girls don't need a prince to come and save them. They have lightsabers for that.
In these illustrations, artist Ralph Sevelius has transformed some of Disney's A-Team girls, Ariel, Snow White, and Rapunzel (bet you don't recognize HER at first glance!) into some lightsaber wielding, ass-kicking aristocrats. It's the perfect realization of the dreams we probably concocted in our own childhood imaginations (You mean YOU didn't play Star Wars Disney Princesses and run with sticks at recess? Give me a break!) Get More »
In the classic 1992 Disney film "Aladdin," the title character famously sang to his beloved Princess Jasmine, "I can show you the world. Shining, shimmering, splendid. Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?"
Well, the answer to that question is actually somewhat disturbing, because according to Buzzfeed, the last time Jasmine let her heart decide she must have been like eight years old, and the decision was probably over which stuffed animal to have a tea party with.
Yeah, you're going to be kind of weirded out when you take a look at just how young the Disney princesses really are. Get More »
The opening of the 61st annual Academy Awards in 1989 was a train wreck, to be polite. It was 15 minutes of dumpster fire disguised as a cheery dance number featuring an actress playing Snow White and Rob Lowe (as himself, bizarrely). Needless to say, it's an incident that the Academy and those who run the Oscars would like to forget.
Thankfully, however, there has emerged one silver lining, a hilarious detail that falls squarely under the category of "How the hell did we not know about this for 24 years?," as brought to us by The Hollywood Reporter: According to Snow White herself, Eileen Bowman, the Snow White dress was purchased after the show for $23,000. By a man. Who chose to be buried in it. Get More »
Ever since there have been movie fans, there have been cosplayers.
Sure, back in the day, most of them were kids, but luckily we're past that now and we live in an age where if grown people want to dress up like cartoon characters. Well, more power to 'em.
Especially if they manage to nail the look as perfectly as this group of Disney princesses does. Get More »
We know what you're thinking: Surely Disney has made more than 50 movies, right? And it's true, they have. But if there's one thing Disney knows even more than animation, it's how to protect their brand, which is why they've designated some of their features to be official classics and others -- like "The Jungle Book 2" or "Pete's Dragon" -- to be, you know, just something they do on the side for giggles and grins.
In anticipation of the upcoming 3-D release of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," we've been reminiscing about this gorgeously crafted, beautifully scored work of art and have come to one conclusion: Belle's a hottie.
Don't judge us. Our earliest visions of female beauty are gleaned from the hand-painted pictures of large-eyed, impossibly proportioned princesses. They sing and dance and fall in love with ugly beasts, filling us with unrealistic dreams doomed to die slow deaths. That's the magic of Disney!
Is it healthy to lust after two-dimensional caricatures? Probably not. But are we actually objectifying women if they're not, actually, women? Definitely. So, with that healthy dose of self-awareness, it's time to rate which cartoon babes we'd most like to comic strip.
We don't think "Snow White and the Huntsman" has anything to worry about.
We figured "Immortals" director Tarsem Singh would be taking something of a lighter approach to his Snow White movie as compared to the other Snow White movie currently in the works (the one featuring Kristen Stewart in body armor), but we weren't quite prepared for the door-slamming shenanigans featured in the "Mirror, Mirror" trailer.

It may not have an official title yet, but director Tarsem Singh's "Snow White" is very much a fairy tale in full swing, not about to let a rival project starring Kristen Stewart stop it from staking its claim in the land of Once Upon a Time.
Whereas "Snow White and the Huntsman" looks gloriously gritty and gothic, Tarsem's "Snow White" is bursting with radiant colors and boasts the director's trademark lavish (and sometimes bizarre) production design.
Take a look as Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane work their own magic on this old chestnut, which will enchant theaters on March 16, 2012.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, the Snow White movie's costumes are the best of all.
The first photos of Julia Roberts, Lily Collins and Armie Hammer in Relativity Media's as-of-yet-untitled Snow White project have been released, courtesy of People and Entertainment Weekly, and it looks like we're a long way from DisneyWorld. Get More »
