One of the brightest nuggets from Disney's golden age, this 1937 film is almost dizzying in its meticulous construction of an enchanted world, with scores of major and minor characters (including fauna and fowl), each with a distinct identity. When you watch Snow White's intricate, graceful movements of fingers, arms, and head all in one shot, it is not the technical brilliance of Disney's artists that leaps out at you, but the very spirit of her engaging, girl-woman character. When the wicked queen's poisoned apple turns from killer green to rose red, the effect of knowing something so beautiful can be so terrible is absolutely elemental, so pure it forces one to surrender to the horror of it. Based on the Grimm fairy tale, Snow White is probably the best family film ever to deal, in mythic terms, with the psychological foundation for growing up. It's a crowning achievement and should not be missed. --Tom Keogh

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.

'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.
