Fairy tales have been around for hundreds of years, with each generation hearing different versions of these stories. It’s no different in the present day, especially when it comes to Hollywood making movies out of the old tales for decades. In recent years, we’ve seen many interesting retellings, whether it’s Disney’s live action remakes of their classic animated adaptations or Universal turning the Snow White mythology into an action romp, most recently with The Huntsman: Winter's War. Still, with so many stories that have told multiple times on the big screen, there are a few characters who would benefit from their own movie.

While many of these characters have previously appeared in other media or even in certain movies, it’s about time they get the cinematic spotlight shone on them. We’ve selected the six fairy tales characters who would benefit from a modern retelling, either as a G/PG movie that’s fun for the whole family or a PG-13/R. Most of these stories would obviously need to be adjusted either to relate to the modern audience or to simply provide more material to work with, but they definitely deserve to shine in their own movie.

Goldilocks
Goldilocks
We all know the story of Golidlocks, the young girl who broke into a bear family’s house to sit on their chairs, eat their porridge and sleep in their beds, only to be frightened away by their return. No doubt discovering three anthropomorphic hovering over her swayed Goldilocks from continuing her life of crime, but that does bring up a good question: what happened to her after the incident? Reuniting with an older Goldilocks provides a good setup for her own action movie in the same vein as 2013’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. Goldilocks returns as a young woman to confront the bears who nearly killed her as a child, but this time she has the necessary combat and weapons skills. Keeping the fairy tale elements intact, these bears are super-intelligent, but they’re also either working with other bears or mystical creatures to harm the community where Goldilocks lives. Oh, and let’s give our protagonist an actual name for the movie and let Goldilocks be an annoying nickname she received. That name doesn’t exactly inspire fear.
