Considering the fantastic narrative’s relevance in the development of the imaginary and popular memory this study aimed to comprehend how the representation of the female characters occur in contemporary fairy tales depicted by the cinema. In order to elaborate the corpus of this work, we selected to evaluate the cinematographic narratives Brave (2012), Frozen (2013) and Maleficent (2014). These productions inscribe as contemporary fairy tales due to its peculiarities that detach from the fairy tales’ stereotypes that stem from a revisionist perspective which challenges many of the standards endorsed in common narratives. In the analyzed movies we examined allusive issues to the reconfiguration of the main characters that escape from the condition of subjection and passivity, as represented for so long in productions of such genre. However, we highlight the ideological paradigms which involve gender issues and determination of fixed places to men and women constantly challenged, so legitimating the female autonomy. We base our research on contributions from authors such that Gerard Genette (1982); Antônio Cândido (1988); Bruno Bettelheim (1992); Teresa de Lauretis (1994); Nelly Novaes Coelho (1997); Robert Stam (2011); Guacira Lopes Louro (2011); Linda Hutcheon (2013) among other agents of valuable contributions.
