Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I remember watching “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” when I was younger.  As I had kids and started replacing my videos with DVDs, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was one I was waiting to be released.  I was so excited to receive a copy of  Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live w/ Blu-ray packaging) [Blu-ray].”  I can’t believe how many special features are included in the Diamond Edition!  Wow!  It was totally worth the wait.  There are games, backstage features, sing-along, and tons more!  This is definitely a set you want to own and watch over and over again!

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” Diamond Edition will be released by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on Tuesday, October 6th, 2009.  The Standard Definition DVD will be available on November 24th, 2009.  Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment (WDSHE) proudly marks two groundbreaking milestones with the highly-anticipated October 6 high definition debut of the most acclaimed animated movie ever made. Walt Disney’s original classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which made history in 1937 as the first full-length animated feature, is the premiere
entry in a spectacular all-new product line—Disney’s Diamond Collection. And, in an industry first, the historic release will make its bow on Disney Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack (two Blu-ray discs + DVD) a full seven weeks before the Deluxe Two-Disc Classic standard definition DVD becomes available on November 24.

Synopsis

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the time-honored story of a beautiful princess whose blossoming beauty disturbs her stepmother the Queen. Each day the Queen asks a mysterious magic mirror the quintessential question: “mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all.” As long as the mirror answers the Queen’s name, all is well. However, when one day the mirror replies with Snow White’s name, the evil Queen begins her quest to kill the young girl, so she may once again be “the fairest of them all.”  Snow White’s escape from the evil Queen’s plan leads her deep into the forest and to a small cottage where she meets, in one of the most famous scenes in motion picture history, the Seven Dwarfs. Once “off to work” they go, the wicked Queen persuades Snow White to take a bite of a poisonous apple that places a powerful sleeping curse on the young beauty. Heartbroken, the dwarfs make a glass coffin for their friend, because she is too beautiful to bury. Only when a handsome Prince — who had previously fallen in love with Snow White — finds her and kisses her, does she awaken, “to live happily ever after.”
