Disney figured out that it's not necessarily how many extras a DVD offers, it's how effortlessly the fan can view them. In two "guided tours," a viewer can see a selection of the excellent extras on the history and creation of Walt Disney's crown jewel. Disc 1 has an informative 40-minute documentary, plus karaoke songs, a neat trivia game, and Barbra Streisand's new version of "Some Day My Prince Will Come." Like Fantasia, the commentary track is expertly made up of historical recordings from over the years by Disney himself. The second disc brings out abandoned concepts, a crisp storyboard-to-film comparison, hundreds of well-organized drawings, and many historical recordings. The centerpiece, "Disney Through the Decades," is a mixed blessing of information and hype. Disney pride aside, they have done well with the film (now looking better than ever) that laid the foundation of their empire. --Doug Thomas

I love the fact that they include a Blu-ray, a DVD as well as a digital code (aka Multi-Format). I prefer to watch movies using physical media however, the digital code did work even though it was expired by a few months. You can use the Disney app on your iPhone, or iPad and the movie can be shared with iTunes as well. Very convenient.
The quality of the Blu-ray is fabulous, vastly superior to streaming.
A timeless masterpiece that children and adults love just as much as the day it came out.
I, of course, didn't see this when it was first released in the theaters in 1937 but am finding it hard to believe the picture could have been any better than this. Sound was superb as well. The short bit with Walt talking about this film was very intriguing as well. I usually don't pay much attention to the special add-ons but this one is worth listening to .
The story is well known but still fun to watch even though I've seen this close to a dozen times.
I would rate this classic film a very good 8.75 to 9.25 out of 10 - well worth owning for nearly everyone!

'Snow White' just about sums up why Walt Disney was a special individual. This is perhaps more prevalent when comparing the film to his second outing, Pinnochio, which is undoubtedly his masterpiece when it comes to artwork and technicality, where you can clearly understand how this film was a learning curve for both Disney and his artists.
But Snow White is just special - it is the natural progression of Walt's storytelling that makes this 'the' perfect fairy-tale. The film is so compact and neat that no scene is ever without a purpose, leaving little room for the viewer to rest from the story. What's also apparent is a delightful innocence in the script and style of dialogue, leading the main characters to explaining actions and thoughts much more directly and thoroughly as if the film was indeed a childs picture-book. This youthful nature makes Snow White much more idealistic and safe than any Disney film after, which is purely down to Disney becoming more ambitious.
The animation of this film is easily up their with Disney's Top 3 (Snow White, Pinocchio and Fantasia), and offers probably the best landscaping artwork of all his films - it's that beautiful. The character artwork isn't as texturized as later films, but uses block colours for simplicity which is indefinitely more effective for the story-book feel. Don't forget about the immense technical advances that were not only discovered during production, but made just for the film (inevitably, being used for every animation after). Not only was Snow White the first feature length animation in Technicolor, but it was the first to be Multi-Planed (multiple 'cels' placed above each other to create the illusion of depth), the first to be rotoscoped with live actors, and the first animation to be nominated and earn awards. Not bad, eh?
If you've never seen Snow White before, then you may be genuinely surprised and, hopefully, delighted at just how neat and tidy it is as a film. To some, this may be seen as a weakness because the story is inevitably predictable and in many respects primitive to latter standard, but their is a point being missed here. Disney was the father of 'the happy ending' - the single most important feature of Disneyfication. He took an old fable about a princess, and turned it into an idealistic, dreamlike experience that has become timeless. The way in which he did it, I've found hard to describe, but Snow White remains both the bench-mark and the framework for tales of later films.
And if you're not welling up in the eyes by the end, then make sure you're watching the right film!
lt came 2 days later!! Who wouldn't be happy with service this prompt!
lt was well packaged- and when opened was just as the advert picture.
lt was competitively priced at the time l purchased it- sept 2013.
Having watched the film- she loved it- which is obviously down to personal taste!
l would definitely recommend the seller and would definitely purchase from them again.
A wonderful story
And animation at it’s best
Although I already own the "original" Snow White on Blu-ray, I bought this one too now, to get a few other dubbed-language versions. When my little niece comes over, she will love that. Apart from the title on the cover, and the additional language support, this is exactly the same beautiful film version as the English one.
The price is very reasonable as well, which cannot be said of several of the original versions offered by third-parties. I'm sorry they try to cash in the way they do on the fact that the film is more difficult to acquire now (thanks to the "vault period" policy of Buena Vista).
I'm a happy uncle.
