Fairy tale retellings and adaptations to classic stories

WNB:


What is a retelling

What is a retelling?

  • Anew version of a story; an adaptation that may include a lot or very little of the original story.

  • We see them all the time!

    Examples:

  • The Three Little Pigs The True Story of the Three Little Pigs By Jon Scieszka

  • The Grimm's fairy tale Snow White Disney Story Film Adaptations


Shrek

Shrek

  • Shrek is another example of a story that incorporates but also changes a lot of fairy tale/traditional story characters and plot events.


The traditional three little pigs

The Traditional Three Little Pigs

  • Whose perspective is this version of the story from?

  • What happens in the story?


The true story of the 3 little pigs

The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs!

  • How is this version different? (Does the perspective change?)

  • Which version is more believable?


Perspective in the news

Perspective in the News

  • Newspapers and news reports might cover the same story differently depending on who their readers/listeners are and on what those readers/listeners believe.

    • For example, A. Wolf's story appears in The Daily Wolf. The other news reports (that tell the story of the big and bad wolf) appear in The Daily Pig.


Fractured fairy tales

Fractured Fairy Tales

  • What do they do

    • Take a traditional story and re-tell the story from a different perspective ( a different characters’ perspective, a different setting, etc…)

    • These can be very creative and interesting because they tell us a side of the story that we may have never considered.

Fun facts wizard of oz

Fun Facts: Wizard of Oz

  • In L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s slippers were silver. They were changed to “ruby” in order to take advantage of the Technicolor wow factor. Multiple sets were created for the film. A pair of the ruby slippers were stolen in 2005, but several others remain under lock and key.

  • The special effects crew used flavored Jell-O powder to color the horses for the Emerald City scenes.

  •  Bert Lahr’s Cowardly Lion costume weighed almost 100 pounds and was made with real lion pelts.

  • The Wicked Witch’s makeup was toxic, so actress Margaret Hamilton lived on a liquid diet to avoid accidental ingestion. Her face stayed green for weeks after shooting finished due to the copper-based ingredients.


Fractured fairy tales3

Fractured Fairy Tales

  • Your Turn: Choose a story or fairy tale.

  • You could choose a traditional fairy tale such as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Humpty Dumpty, Peter Pan, or Goldilocks and the three bears, or you could choose another story of your choice.

  • On your paper write down the name of the story you chose and a one sentence summary of your story, so I know a bit about the original.

  • Below that begin planning and writing your own fractured fairy tale! Choose a new character and/or perspective to write from that tells a new, never before seen or heard version of the story.


As you write

As you write…

  • Think about how changing the perspective of a story can change the way you think or feel about the characters and events.

  • What changing a character, setting, or plot event can do to the story.

  • Are you incorporating the different story elements we have discussed?
