Blu-ray Release: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Signature Collection
By John Corrado
Today, Disney is releasing their beloved 1937 classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on Blu-ray, to kick off their new Signature Collection series. Famously voiced by Adriana Caselotti, Snow White is a charming princess who escapes the clutches of the evil Queen (Lucilla La Verne), and finds herself in the forest home of seven lovable dwarfs.
Both as the first full length feature directed by Walt Disney, the success of which paved the way for the studio’s countless classics that followed, and also as their inaugural princess, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has an important place in animation and cinema history.
The film remains a beautifully animated and engaging work of art, that is just as entertaining and delightful nearly eighty years after its groundbreaking release in December 1937, filled with appealing characters and luscious images that still transport us into this fairy tale world. For fans who don’t already have Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in their collections, or are looking to upgrade one of the older releases, this nicely packaged edition does justice to the film’s iconic legacy.
The Blu-ray also includes excerpts from an archival interview with Walt Disney himself, several new featurettes on the production of the film and its lasting legacy, a never before seen alternate sequence, as well as storyboarded deleted scenes, and many of the bonus features from the Diamond Edition release.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is 83 minutes and rated G.
