Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella (2015) probably won’t be the interpretation of the beloved fairy tale to end all interpretations, but for all intents and purposes it might certainly well be. Intentionally honoring the Disney animated classic as well as the original story, this Cinderella is obviously safe, but it does the unthinkable: it breathes life into an old dream.

Lilo & Stitch easily had one of the most memorable marketing strategies of all Disney movies. The character of Stitch clawed its way through classical Disney moments, thereby subverting the outside pressure on the creators to churn out exactly such fair.
