prince charming


Recently, there's been a mega-trend in overanalysing sweet Disney movies, ultimately making all of our childhood dreams fade into the very bleak distance. 

The most recent has seen Snow White's hopes and dreams come crashing down, along with our own. *Sob*. 

If you haven't seen the movie (who are you?!) we'll give you a little refreshment. Snow White is the tale of a beautiful princess, who is banished away to the woods because the Evil Queen is super jealous of her.

The Queen is so angry at Snow White for being a beaut (over-dramatic, much?) that she goes on to poison Snow White with a magic apple.

Everyone thinks Snowy is dead, including her squad of dwarfs and animals, but then TWIST TIME, a handsome Prince comes along, kisses her, she wakes up and the day is saved. Hurray!

But, according to a fan theory, one Reddit user suggested that this is not how it actually went down. 

According to Scherazade, the Prince isn't her saviour; he's DEATH. Duh, duh, duhhh. 

"Always present, always looming, but never intervening until it's too late. Seen as an escape, but always risky, and she shies away from it when it first tries to embrace her. [Eventually] the Prince as Death saved Snow White, but only after she had fallen irreparably into his embrace through the apple."

However, Movie Pilot roams even deeper than that, and concludes that Prince Charming is actually a really hot Grim Reaper. *Chills*. 

"The Prince's kiss could actually represent him rousing Snow White from the grave to escort her into the afterlife, hence the strange imagery in the sky and the white horse used to lead his princess into the distance."

Childhood ruined? Yep, ours too. 



We have only just recently gotten over our excitement about Emma Watson playing Belle in Disney’s latest live-action remake of fan favourite Beauty and the Beast.

However, in recent days there has been even more announcements coming from camp Disney that have us all kinds of thrilled.

Prince Charming, as in the Prince Charming, is going to have his own movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Disney have bought the rights to the project, fitting, seeing as they are responsible for creating quite the Prince Charming figure in many of their previous projects.

Most details regarding the project are “being kept behind a moat” as of right now, aside from knowing that Matt Fogel write the script. Matt previously worked on Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, for those non-film buffs of us who were wondering.

We also know that it’s going to be a “revisionist take” on the traditional fairytale.

Variety reports that “the point of view isn’t that of the prince himself but of his brother who never lived up to the family name.”

We wonder, who would be in the running for taking on the role of the family duo?

Considering Prince Charming has had some lovely portrayals in the past, despite his character being just a tad lackluster compared to his leading ladies, the role of his not-so-charming brother opens up a lot of options for Hollywood actors.

We’ve already thought of a few we wouldn’t mind seeing on the big screen. 

Nikolai has got the hair flip down

And we know this sibling pairing makes for great viewing

Or perhaps actual brothers?

The Efrons do make a striking pair

We wouldn't be opposed to seeing any of these guys take on the roles if we're being completely honest!
