List of Fairytale Media v.2

This is an updated version of this list, but is still no way near an exhaustive list of all fairytale-based media.

To borrow from the previous list:
To clarify what we mean by 'media' - any books, tv shows, movies, theatrical productions etc. that are based on fairy tales are acceptable as fandoms for this community. Generic stock images are not. For example, general paintings/pictures of fairies are not acceptable however icons of Cinderella's fairy godmother, Tinkerbell or the Blue Fairy from Once Upon a Time, or those of the three fairies from Sleeping Beauty are.

A comprehensive list of fairytales can be found here. If your fandom is not in the list below then please check that list.
