    The Internet went all aflutter Wednesday when Disney dropped the trailer for the live-action version of Cinderella. The fairy tale-induced fervor was so ferocious, it broke the Mouse House's record for the most online views in a 24-hour span. And, with Into The Woods set to slaughter the box office on Christmas Day, one thing has become very clear. We like our fairy tales IRL.

    Luckily for us, the studios are delivering. In fact, they have been for years. Don't get us wrong, we love our classics animated as well. But, there's something about seeing these iconic characters come to life that feels more thrilling than all the Frozens in the world. Here are eight live-action movies that did "happily ever after" just right.
