| And then there was Disney,,,
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the very first animated film featured by Disney and one of the most charming. While it's a bit different from the original fairy tale, Walt Disney took this familiar classic and turned into a family film that is still talked about over 60 years later. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is such a charming film and is another example of beautiful animation and a terrific story that could charm it's way into your heart. I still enjoy watching this film to this day, who could love the seven dwarfs? They all were so funny to watch and are so memorable. They pretty much represent our moods, they're kinda like a mood ring that's put into one room, lol. But Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the perfect family film that is still holding up very well all these years.

Snow White is a lovely princess who one day is just traveling through the forest. She comes across a house where it's a total mess, she decides to clean it as a favor to those who are living there. It turns out that seven dwarfs live there and when they find her, they realize they got a good thing going here, a hot girl who'll clean for them. But not everything is happy, the evil wicked queen wants to be the fairest in the land and Snow White has just beat her by a land slide. So she disguises herself as a witch and offers Snow White an apple, she eats it, and dies. Now the queen's the hottest girl in town, but the dwarfs come up with a clever plan to get her true love, the prince, he must kill the queen and save Snow White so they could live happily ever after.

I'd say that's a nice summary, I try my best anyways. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is just one of the greatest Disney films ever made. It's such a charming film and is very much apart of our pop culture today and as far as films go, this is just a great one. I can't wait to show this to my kids one day, they'll probably laugh thinking how old this movie is that it's hand drawn, but I think that's what makes it so special. The voices, the songs, the animation, everything about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was just beautiful. I highly recommend this, it's a great family film.

10/10

When the birds are putting yellow flowers in the vase, right before they put the final one in that sticks up a bit in the middle, a flower that ends up right behind it appears out of nowhere.


Crazy Credits

Alternate Versions

Prior to 1954, Disney's films were distributed by RKO Radio Pictures. The original opening title sequence featured the RKO logo in it. In 1955, Disney created and started using Buena Vista Pictures Distribution. Beginning with the 1958 reissue, the opening title cards were replaced, with the RKO logo removed, and the Buena Vista logo inserted. The original opening and ending titles with the RKO references were included as bonus material on the 2001 Platinum Edition DVD and 1994 special edition laser disc, but were not restored to the actual film until the 2009 Diamond Edition DVD and Blu-ray releases.
