Snow White's Renaissance

I've been watching ABC's new show Once Upon a Time, and really enjoying it. Basic premise is that the evil queen that Snow White defeated unleashes a crazy powerful curse and transports the entire realm of fairy tales into our own world, into a small town called StoryBrook. Everyone has parallel lives, but doesn't remember anything. Snow White and Prince Charming managed to send out their daughter right before the curse struck, and now 30 years later she returns to StoryBrook as if by chance. The show then is about her trying to free everyone from the curse.

This is the first Snow White remake I've seen in a while. I call it a snow white remake because she's the central fairy tale character, even though the show is going to explore many of them. So I was surprised to see a trailer for a movie coming in 2012 called Snow White and The Huntsmen. From the trailer is looks pretty action-y and dark, so I'm kind of excited to see how it turns out.

Strange coincidence, two Snow White projects at once. But wait, there's more. Guess what I saw last night! ANOTHER snow white movie is coming out in 2012, called Mirror Mirror. So within a year long period, we're going to have a TV show and two separate big budget movies, all centered on Snow White. Go her.
