Learning real life lessons from these fairytales
Don’t go into the scary forest where the troll family lives, or you will get chopped up.
Witty Storytelling, Surprising Stories!
Loved the twist of the trailer! This is the perfect show for all the Disney-loving 90's kids who are now Game-of-Thrones-loving adults. I'm a huge fan of Parcast's other storytelling show, Haunted Places, so I'm excited to see them presenting more well-written, engaging tales from folklore!
Finally the truth comes out
Can’t wait to hear what other things got “corrected” over time.
