Fairy tales are making a comeback. They never went completely out of style - kids have always loved them and the Princess costume is always a Halloween favorite for little girls. However, we are seeing fairy tales in theaters again and there are many projects on the horizon. USA Today reports that movies like Shrek and the The Princess Diaries have made fairy tale movies popular again. Toy stores are filled with princess themed toys.

USA Today says Disney is looking at bringing fairy tales to the big screen again. Some of the plans films inlcude Rapunzel, The Frog Prince and Stilskin, which will be retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin tale. Some non-Disney projects in the work include The Brothers Grimm, Red Riding Hoood and A Cinderella Story.
