Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Updated on April 3, 2013


A timeless fairy tale that has captured the hearts of many, and creating a new generation of animated films that would follow in its' foot steps. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was the first full length animated film, and was the first to one to win an Academy Award (for technical achievement). This film along with the creation of many other memorable Disney characters, created one of America's biggest franchises. Although the story is rather simplistic and obviously dated by today's standards, it's important to remember this film's historical significance. Without this film, modern classics like "The Incredibles", "Princess Mononoke" and many others wouldn't exist. The film is based off the fairy tale of a young princess, Snow White, whom is forced into hiding because of her evil step-mother, the queen. The queen wants to be the "fairest of them all." Tragically, as the queen discovers through her magic mirror, she finds that Snow White is "fairer", so she orders to have her killed. Snow White's only refuge is in a small cottage, inhabited by seven dwarfs whom befriend her. Each one with his own unique personality like Dopey, Grumpy, Doc and so on. However, when the queen finds out where Snow White is hiding, she disguises herself as an old woman, so she can kill Snow White with a poisonous apple. Obviously, this film is predictable for many adults who're used to the stereotype fairy tales by now, but it does provide us with many memorable songs and characters that'll touch the heart of many young viewers. Using great songs like "Hi ho, hi ho, off to work we go" and memorable characters like Grumpy, Snow White, Sneezy and Doc, this film will echo inside the hearts of many young children who watch it. The theme of the story is one of envy and friendship. I'm sure many children can learn from this film about not being envious of others, and how they can overcome anything with the help of their friends. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to sound like a Disney fanatic or "an after school special", but to describe this film's impact on American society. Despite a decent script, the theme of the movie is carried out well for all young viewers. Overall, this film continues to be the "gold standard" for animated films.
