Mirror Mirror Giveaway - Movie Prize Pack including book and Fandango Gift Card

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Are you ready for the newest retelling of the Snow White fairy tale? The aptly titled live-action movie, Mirror Mirror hits the big screen tomorrow (March 30). Starring Julia Roberts as the evil Queen and Lily Collins as Snow White, from the early reviews this kid-friendly version sounds like it's going to be a fun if not a bit quirky film to watch! Other cast members apparently add to the humor including Armie Hammer as the dashing prince and Nathan Lane as the queen's bungling servant. The film, released by Relativity Media, promises CGI special effects, lavish costuming, spunky girl power and a Bollywood-inspired dance sequence ending.

Find out more about the movie and characters, watch trailers, download a coloring book and more at the official website:

For those that want to gauge whether it's age-appropriate, The Dove Foundation has approved the film as family friendly and provides a review of Mirror Mirror, including a detailed content description.

For online learning resources, visit Film Education. They offer a Mirror Mirror curriculum resource featuring interactive learning tools and other activities intended for ages 9-13.

It's been too long since my daughter and I have gone on a mother/daughter outing. I think perhaps we'll take an afternoon together and check out this enchanted, princess-y fare. I admit part of the reason I'd like to see this one is because I'm curious to see if Julia Roberts can successfully play a mean-hearted queen. Snow White also happens to be one of my favorite fairy tales.

In celebration of the release, Relativity Media has kindly offered to give away a Mirror Mirror prize pack to a Brimful Curiosities reader. One (1) winner will receive:

- $25 Fandango Gift Card
- Mirror Mirror: The Movie Storybook

For a chance to win, answer one of the following questions: Do you plan to watch this film variant of Snow White? What is your favorite film variation of classic fairy tale or book?

Yes, I do plan to watch this movie. My favorite version of a book is the old televised version (now impossible to find, but I have it on VHS) of Peter Pan, starring Mary Martin as Peter Pan. I love how the same actor plays Mr. Darling AND Captain Hook, and the music is FANTASTIC! It follows the original story much better than the Disney version (although I like it, too!). I just discovered your site -- thank you! My email address is bobbiberta @ (no spaces).

I would like to catch this and the darker new version Snow White and the Huntsman. The best adaptation is always the one you remember in your mind.
