Why did I choose this course?

I chose from Grimm to Disney as my First Year Seminar because I grew up watching Disney movies and there was not one that I did not like.  It was not until I recently, when I learned that a lot of Walt Disney's fairy tales were based off of the Grimm Brother's fairy tales, that I knew I wanted to know more.  I am hoping to learn not only about the Brothers Grimm and their fairy tales, but also about how Disney changed the Grimm Brothers fairy tales to be his own.  My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast.  I especially love this fairy tale because of the story itself.  But i also love the magic displayed in the castle, by the characters, and I even through true loves kiss.
