Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Blu-ray Movie Review

Updated on September 13, 2014

The Best Version of Disney's Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs Ever Is On Blu-ray

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Walt Disney's first animated feature. In 1937 it was considered extremely unlikely that people would want to sit through a full-length animated movie. However, Disney spared no expense putting this movie together and it went on to great success and has stood the test of time extremely well. I am sure that Snow White is still hugely popular because of the wonderful music (including the highly unusual voice of Adriana Caselotti) and the loveable characters and creatures.

If you are in the market for a copy of this legendary animated movie, you should definitely be considering one of the blu-ray disc versions as that will present the movie in the best possible quality for home viewing and you will be happy to know that the blu-ray release ranked very well for quality of picture, sound and extras.

On this page, you will find all of the blu-ray choices that are available. You can choose from the more affordable, simple blu-ray disc package like the Diamond edition right up to the amazing gift sets, which include but are not limited to, the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Plush Gift Set and the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Limited Edition Collector's Set. You will also find the blu-ray movie trailer, reviews from amateur and expert movie reviewers and much more.

Disney called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs a 'limited time release' and put it "back in the vault" in 2011. However, if you are looking for a copy of Snow White on blu-ray or DVD it is still available through sellers on Amazon and eBay.

The Fairest One Of All

Snow White went back in the vault on April 30, 2011.

That has had a direct impact on cost. The movie is still available, but the prices have gone up.

Does Snow White Really Need An Introduction?

We all know that Snow White is the earliest of Disney's princess who escaped from a jealous stepmother and took up house with a group of seven dwafs. However, she eventually ate a poisoned apple from which she can only be revived from the spell by love's true kiss.

Amazon Customer Reviews of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The Amazon customer reviews of Amazon include comments like the blu-ray being simply brilliant. Dennis A. Amath was amazed that a 1937 class movie could look so vibrant and spectacular and that Disney did a brilliant job of restoring and remastering the film. He found the picture "pristine." In more technical terms he called the "new lossless 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio" magnificent. Justice4all72 call the quality unbelievably good.

What Age Is Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs Recommended For?

Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is definitely a movie classic. However, that does not make it suitable for all children. It is, as Commonsense Media says, enchanting but scary. They recommend Snow White for children aged five years old and up. The Movie Mom, in her book The Movie Mom's Guide to Family Movies, also recommends this book for children aged five and up.

In case you do not remember, the frightening parts include any with the wicked queen, when Snow White is in the enchanted forest, when she eats the apple and when the Queen transforms into a hag. Don't forget, the Queen actually orders the huntsman to kill Snow White and return with her heart. Take this information in before you show it to your very young children.

Some might even dislike the basic approach of Snow White, that of young lady content to stay home and clean house until her prince comes for her.

Finally, the movie does not have narrative and relies on the use of pages from the storybook to share details of the story. Non-readers will require someone to read for them.This film is a marvel, however, and boasts a beautifully remastered video and some of the most famous Walt Disney music of all time.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Blu-ray SteelBook

This SteelBook set includes Blu-ray and DVD, 3 Discs

Ever wondered what a SteelBook is? I did and recently learned that a SteelBook Case is one that is similar to an ordinary disc case but which is made out of metal making it much more durable and more attractive as well. Some collectors even prefer the more substantial feel of a SteelBook case in their hand. Often the SteelBook version of the movie features different artwork (as this from Snow White does) and sometimes that artwork is even embossed or dressed up in some way.

      Although I had seen the movie as a child, my mother and I attended a screening of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on a lark when I was a college student - it remains one of my fondest memories of time spent with my mother.

      This was the first Disney movie I ever saw. I must have been about 5 years old and I still remember how scared I was!

      I haven't seen it recently, but I'm hoping that someday I'll have a granddaughter and we can watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs together.

      I haven't seen it in years! The Snow White movie with the plush would be a great gift for a Snow White fan.
