Co-Creator/Executive Producer Adam Horowitz:
Snow White was the first movie I saw as a child—and in many ways it is "ground zero" for Fairy Tales... it was my introduction to storytelling. And the images of good and evil as embodied by Snow and the Queen have stuck with me ever since.

Co-Creator/Executive Producer Edward Kitsis:
Cinderella's message was a powerful one that hit me even as a child—that if you have hope, positive change is always possible no matter one's circumstances.
