Disney Movie CotW Idea

Guys, I had a unique idea for the next CotW. Why don't we do a CotW of works that became Disney movies? Some examples (even though we might have some of these) include Snow White, Cinderella, Pinocchio, etc. What do you guys think? Do we have enough public domain texts to add? I know we are missing Snow White and I will probably add that. Let me know what you think. Thanks. --Mattwj2002 (talk) 03:23, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

That sounds like a neat portal idea. I think we should do it. ;-) John Vandenberg (chat) 18:46, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
The trouble is, which version do we use? Snow White is a folk story collected by the Brothers Grimm, but do we use their version or one of the innumerable different ones published since? Cinderella is even worse, as the Brothers Grimm version differs greatly from an earlier version published by Perrault.--Longfellow (talk) 12:30, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
If it is published, we can provide it, and do. We don't have to choose which Snow-white, Cinderella or other version we add, and it is not what libraries do, the decisions and discussion about the choice and relationship of these pages is discussed at their articles at wikipedia. Note that they have one page for the subject or topic, we potentially have many pages with similar titles. cygnis insignis 22:19, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

I propose we have a CotW for this portal. See User talk:John Vandenberg/Archive/2009-2010#Domesday_Book for background. John Vandenberg (chat) 09:24, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
