Additional Features

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

Format: DVD
I was extremely excited to receive this DVD.... Upon opening it, one gets the feeling that it is truly a special edition. The packaging is very nice: the DVD box is sturdy with two openings for each disk. The pamphlet inside the DVD is gorgeously produced and very helpful.
My first impression is that Disney has spent much time making this DVD user-friendly. There is an abundance of directions and drawings showing you what is on the disk and how to get there. Since there are two disks and a KINGDOM of information to pour through, these directions are very welcome (even to this seasoned DVD-viewer!)
Disney pulls out some familiar faces to make the experience as warm as possible: Disney himself appears in various footage; Angela Lansbury narrates the documentary and provides a "tour" of the disks; Michael Eisner shows up; and Barbra Streisand sings a specially recorded version of "Some Day My Prince Will Come".
SNOW WHITE, the movie, looks gorgeous and, although old fashioned, is quite wonderful. SNOW WHITE, the double-disk, is a lot of information to wade through. I am amazed at the amount of behind-the-scenes film that exists! Disney must have suspected that he was creating a classic - he filmed every aspect of it! I especially enjoy the HALL OF ART section. There are 3 halls of various story art (i.e. "The cottage"; "The castle"; "the Forest"; etc.) Although initially I found it hard to move from hall to hall, I eventually figured it out. The animated HALLS are extraordinary and the art that "hangs" there is incredible -- various renderings and attempts at bringing the story and locales of SNOW WHITE alive. It's even more incredible that Disney Co. held on to these papers for all these years.

It's so wonderful to live in a time when Disney's strange behavior of taking their classics off the market can be circumvented by great Internet marketers like Amazon. I was able to buy this 5 Star Disney Princess classic recently for my young princess through one of Amazon's third-party sellers. And without that opportunity, my little princess may have outgrown Snow White by the time Disney released it again.

Let me just say that my little one was absolutely captivated by Snow White, and to think that she would be deprived by Disney itself from seeing it at her perfect age is criminal.

The story is familiar enough to any parent, so I won't go on about that other than to say that of all the Disney Princess classics, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty have some scenes that might scare a young princess under the age of 5.

But you should take advantage of purchasing Snow White or any of the other "off-the-market" Disney princess classics like Beauty and the Beast now via one of this site's resellers if you have a little princess of your own that might not appreciate it as much when Disney decides that it's time.

And indeed, you will enjoy Snow White or any of the other Princess classics as thoroughly as your young one.

Side Note on Resellers: Beware of exorbitant reseller prices; renting may be a better option if available. Also beware of REGION 2 resales; Region 2 DVDs will not play in most US DVD players. Look for Region 1 US Amazon resellers.

Format: Blu-ray Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Side-by-side, I watched the Blu-ray disc of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs along with the regular DVD included in the Diamond Edition released in October 2009. Was the contrast between the Blu-ray and the original movie obvious? Yes. But, is the enhancement an improvement?

I am all for progress but as I watched the two versions together, although my eyes were drawn to the Blu-ray version for the vivid colors and clarity, there were definite problems with the changes. The colors are so bright that the misty original now looks like a current cartoon/animated feature instead of an old classic -- cheapened by the process rather than enriched. The original is filmed with a diffused gauzy sensibility in muted colors in both the background and foreground - a perfect balance and an expected setting for a fairy tale with a lovely princess, dwarfs, a wicked queen and a handsome prince.

In places on the disc, the Blu-ray contains inconsistent color enhancement. One scene - Snow White and the woodland creatures cleaning the dwarfs' home is a good example of the uneven application of the color saturation. The characters are harshly colorized in comparison to the subtle background - to the degree that it reminded me of a colorized classic black and white film where the backgrounds often remain in black and white and only the foregrounds are tinted. The dwarfs' mine scene is another example of the problem. So, parts of the movie are noticeably out-of-balance. The original looks like a work of art and the new version looks, although vividly colored, of lesser over-all quality and depth.

It is great to have both versions, and the extras are terrific, but sometimes "improvements" this drastic have the opposite affect and end-up detracting.

The home video BD/DVD release of the latest home video version of Disney’s 1937 classic full length animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” , will not be released until February 2nd, but – as a journalist – I was provided with an advance screener in exchange for an objective review. You’ve probably seen the film so there is no reason to spend time on it. It’s a CLASSIC. But this is first time it is available on Digital HD and “Disney Movies Anywhere” and they added about 30 minutes of NEW bonus material, so that’s what I’ll concentrate on here.
If you don’t already own the “Diamond Edition” release (from 2009) you will find literally HOURS of bonus featurettes here. These run more than the 83 minute length of the film. If you already have the Diamond edition, here’s what’s new:
1) A four minute “in Walt’s Words” short which has the audio of an interview with Disney in the 1960s melded with archival footage and stills.
2) A seven minute “Iconography” short which concentrates on three “artists/fashion n designers” who are Making money from “Snow White” tie ins. This is –honestly – a throw away, in my opinion.
3) A five-minute short on designing the characters with current Disney Animators paying tribute to the original artists.
4) A 4 ½ minute short (cross promoting Disney Channel star Sofia Carson) which gives you “7 Facts” you may not know about Snow White
5) “Snow White in 70 Seconds” – which “raps the plot” in – ACTUALLY – 61 seconds. (not sure why they call it “70 seconds”.
6) A 3 ½ minute “alternate sequence – using story boards for “the Prince Meeting Snow White”

The colors are bright and the transfers are great and – if you had your kids watching the previous disc, it’s probably scratched. So you “might want to upgrade”.
