Way back in 1937 Walt Disney made his first feature-length animated film: Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. This is the movie that opened the door for thousands and thousands of other well-known and loved animated films. Without Snow White, her friendly troupe of seven hard-working, diamond-mining dwarfs and her evil stepmother, we may not have movies like Monsters Vs. Aliens, Cars and Wall-E to enjoy today.
Mirror, Mirror On The Wall …
In case you need a refresher, the quick and dirty version of the classic tale, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, goes something like this: Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who had to run away from her jealous (and very evil!) stepmother and found shelter with a group of seven friendly dwarfs deep in the woods.
… Who’s The Fairest Of Them All?
What few people know is that since 1937 the movie has been reissued a grand total of eight times; every reissue included developments in the animation and in giving each of the seven dwarfs their own unique personality and character (this was totally absent in the original Grimm fairytale). The fairytale was also toned down quite a bit to make it more family-friendly – in 1937 people thought the transformation of the evil stepmother into the wicked witch was too much for little kids, In England the movie was even banned to kids under 16 for a while!
