The End of Fairy Tales?

This NPR article examines the evolution of Fairy Tales. Walt Disney revealed it has no plans to make another animated fairy tale (likely because Tangled wasn't too successful), yet this has been met with backlash from fans. There is conflicting data with the success of the fairy tales because there have not been successful traditional fairy tales (in the same vein of Snow White, The Little Mermaid and Sleeping Beauty) yet, fairy tale hybrid movies that appeal to a wider audience than little girls, like Shrek were very successful.
