I actually wonder why there isn't no such retelling already! Mulan is one of the best disney tales ever, and I think it would be an epic retelling. I've always loved the trope of girls disguising as guys and kicking some ass, and Mulan's story is one of my favourites in that concept, so I am eager to read something that takes a fresh take on her story!
But whatever you do, don't forget to add Mushu! He's the best part of the whole tale!:)
5. The Snow Queen
To be honest, I didn't know anything about Snow Queen until I watched Frozen. When I learned that Elsa's character was loosely based on the snow queen, I immediately went and checked out the story, and was intrigued. Plus I really love Elsa's character, and it would be awesome to read a book with an antiheroic MC
6. Hansel and Gretel
You know why I want this story to be retold? I want a wonderful, deep and beautiful brother sister relationship in a fantasy book. It's quite rare to see meaningful sibling relationship that goes with the plot. Give me that with a retelling of Hansel and Gretel.
7. Hannibal Lecter
I saw The Silence of the Lambs when I was 14. I was utterly horrified, scared out of my mind, and was completely fascinated with the character of Hannibal Lecter and Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of him. To date, there has been a couple of interpretations of that character, but I want to read a story about him, in his point of view. Maybe something about his younger days
He's such a complicated and twisted antihero, and it would be glorious to read his story.
I want a book where Tarzan is brought to the contemporary world. It would be epic! Just imagine him trying to figure out vehicles and electronic devices!:)
9. The Nutcracker
A retelling of the nutcracker would be magical! Just imagine an author with an intricate and beautiful writing style trying to describe the Tchaikovsky ballet!
What tales do you want to be retold?
