Fairy Tales, Folklore, and Myths. ALL OF IT!
If you’ve been in touch since Potterweek you probably know we’ve been working on this event for a while. It’s finally here. The build up has been pretty underground as we haven’t posted about it on the site until, well, now.
Would you guess that some of your favorite “new” tales are actually variations of myths, folklore, and fairy tales? You might have, yet we’re going to share our personal favorites (from movies to books to games) and the journeys they went on to be what they are now.
Pretty sure the cavemen had a version of the myths we’ve learned in school. The Egyptian’s hieroglyphics and the Greek’s classics certainly formed Disney and Marvel’s lore. And George Lucas’s tale was created from a trope that has been around for as long as stories existed. We’re exploring this and can’t wait to share our posts with you!
What: A link up! About ALL the Tales: myths, fairy tales, folklore, origins, interpretations, adaptations, allusions, your favorites, your least favorites, ALL of ’em.
Where: Your sites, podcasts, social media accounts, vlogs, any or all!
When: From January 24th until February 6th!
Why: ‘cuz we can’t get enough of ’em.
How: Join us on your own sites, podcasts, or social media accounts and use any of the images here! Use the hashtag #AlltheTales to keep up.
It’s really that easy, no prompts like Potterweek.
We want to hear about your favorite myths, fairy tales, folklore or any connections you’ve seen in your favorite stories to other stories. Anything that has a story is fair game. Whether it is a movie, book, song, tv shows, musical, play, video game, etc.
–> If you don’t have time to create new material, this is a great time to repromote All the Tales themed content. We definitely will be reading and sharing our favorite posts!
Check back here for a directory of what we posted and use any of these images! Thanks to our talented friend Dan from The Modern Geek Show (check it out!!) for drawing the All the Tales silhouettes.
