Home Video Viewing Alternatives
Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Corpse Bride.
Nowadays fairytales are often sanitized to be more children friendly, but many original stories, like the one this movie is based on, are much darker. Less kid-friendly than the animated account of Cinderella, Ever After is an adaptation of the tale aimed at older audiences. Johnny Depp also plays the man who created the fictional world of Peter Pan in the movie Finding Neverland.
