Following the debut of the first teaser a couple of weeks ago comes the first full trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashup that combines — well, the title makes it obvious, no? Corsets, zombies, proper ladies training themselves in the art of war…it’s all just sort of delightfully bonkers. Here’s hoping the full film can live up to the insanity of the trailers.

The name “Disney” brings to mind images of fair princesses, charming princes, magical fairy tales, and simple happily ever afters. In recent years, though, Disney has begun rethinking their classic properties, and releasing more thematically complex versions of their famous films. Sleeping Beauty became Maleficent, which turned a wicked witch into a sympathetic anti-hero; a whole mess of fairy tales turned into Into the Woods, where happily ever after preceded a whole bunch of death and tragedy. The ranks of Disney Princesses grew to include women like Merida, the bow-slinging heroine of Brave, and Anna and Else from Frozen, who rescued each other from an prince, rather than the other way around.
