The same is true for other popular heroes including Batman, Superman, and Spider Man. We love these stories and characters so much, we want new versions every few years.
Here are a few retellings I am excited about.
There is a new dark Red Riding Hood movie, with a big bad werewolf.
|Amanda Seyfried is Red Riding Hood|
Alex Finn's Beastly, is in my to-read pile. Where a witch turns an attractive, popular, high school bully into a Beast. This retelling of Beauty and the Beast is also set to be a movie.
Gregory Maguire, has written six novels that are all loose retellings of The Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Cinderella, A Christmas Carol and the Tooth Fairy.
|The (not-so) Wicked Witch|
