* A particularly egregious case occurs in ''WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI''. The king's advisor Kralahome is turned into the BigBad. Animal sidekicks are omnipresent, and they serve little actual purpose in the story. The slave girl Tuptim is given as a love interest to King Mongkut's eldest son instead of Mongkut himself to avoid the implications of a fifty-something man interested in a teenage girl. The King's multiple wives are omitted too. Comedy is put in the movie in exchange for the stuff taken out. And yet the film includes a rather stereotypical caricature in the form of the villain's sidekick. The King also lives at the end of the movie. The estate of Rogers and Hammerstein was not pleased with the film, and as a result it no longer allows animated adaptations of its musicals; this move plus the film becoming a BoxOfficeBomb crushed the career of director Richard Rich.

* The happy ending of the movie version of ''TheWitches'' is pretty Disneyfied. Which is a bit odd, as the original novel doesn't have anything near a DownerEnding... it just isn't a perfect HappilyEverAfter, but much more [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet]] in flavor.

* The WarnerBros animated feature ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot'', supposedly based on Vera Chapman's novella ''The King's Damosel'', itself a feminist retelling of the [[KingArthur Arthurian]] tale of Linette and Gareth. Similarities between the book and the film are, in total, that the lead character is an ActionGirl with a falcon, she's accompanied by a blind man, and it's set in Arthurian England. It was decided to [[AnimatedMusical add songs]] [[FollowTheLeader to compete with]] Creator/{{Disney}}, [[AdaptationNameChange change all the lead characters' names]], add ''three'' {{Non Human Sidekick}}s, [[ClicheStorm add more Disney cliches]] to make the film more of a Disney-esqe musical, and to top it all off, dump the BittersweetEnding in favour of "Kayley" living HappilyEverAfter with "Garrett" (an amalgamation of Lucius [the blind man] and Gareth).

* In addition to changing its heroine from a quiet, thoughtful girl into ShirleyTemple's usual brassy, vivacious smart-aleck, the 1939 film of Frances Hodgson Burnett's book ''Literature/ALittlePrincess'' softens the hardships Sara undergoes, changes the villain's weak and complicit sister into a heroic brother, and imposes a DisneyDeath on Sara's father, while ladling generous quantities of TastesLikeDiabetes over the entire story. There have been more faithful adaptations since, but even the 1995 Creator/AlfonsoCuaron version has her father survive.

* ''TheSwanPrincess'' for the most part stays true to the original ''SwanLake'' fairy tale, but makes the classic set of changes: talking animal sidekicks, a healthy dash of women's lib, and a happy ending in which the swan and the prince marry instead of drowning themselves in the lake. They even went on to star in direct-to-video sequels and are still alive and kicking!

Named for its most notorious practitioner, Disney studios, although it actually started [[OlderThanTheyThink before the Victorian Era]]. Ironically, the TropeMaker would be Creator/TheBrothersGrimm, who despite being the TropeNamer for {{Grimmification}}, actually were the first ones to make fairy tales more suitable for children. The violence and sex were actually toned down tremendously from the originals.

* Parodied in ''WebVideo/{{Smosh}}'''s "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRfOsl0nSnc DISNEY STAR WARS]]" video, which takes nearly everything from the original ''Franchise/StarWars'' trilogy and turns it into a TastesLikeDiabetes comedy. Complete with musical numbers, recasts, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and Millennium Falcon being replaced by a ''literal'' giant falcon]].

** A bit HilariousInHindsight when you consider that ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' and ''Film/RogueOne'' actually inverted this trope (the latter especially).
