  1. Actually, I left Ever After: A Cinderella Story out of my list because I can’t recall it having any fantastical elements. Anyone care to correct me?

  2. It’s specifically presented as the real-world version that got embroidered; IIRC, Leonardo da Vinci makes a device that I’m not sure he ever actually made, but that’s comic relief rather than critical. (Claiming to be the ur-version is a bit arrogant considering how many cultures have a similar story, but it makes a nice-but-trivial frame.) Having Riff Raff as a villain is also cute, but there’s nothing fantastical about him either.
