Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs

Dawn_Heart, this one is for you. I have decided to start with the leftover requests. However, I'm going to be doing something extra special I will  be doing three blogs on the first three Disney films. A review of Snow, Why The Donky Scene from Pinocchio scares me and Music Fridays: Fantasia.  Now you'll have to wait a while for Fantasia Music Fridays because of the delay from last week.   Just in case, your wondering lFantasia will be Music Fridays # 11.


Anyways on with the show




The Plot

Snow White is a young girl who live with her stepmother, The Evil Queen. The Evil Queen tries to have Snow White killed after the Magic Mirror tells her in her chamber that she is not The Fairest of them all. So she hires The Huntsman but he can't bring himself to kill the young girl and tells her to hide in the woods and this is where Snow White meets the Dwarfs.


Snow White voiced by Adriana Caselotti





Snow White is a young, timid and almost naive girl.  Her birth mother died and her father is a great king but her stepmother, The Wicked Queen has forced her to work as  a chamber maid out of spite and jealousy. Even with her condition, Snow White is a happy girl.  She is very polite and really there isn't much else I can say about her because compared to the princesses that came after Snow White, she doesn't have much of a defining personality.  She's nice and sweet but that's it.  I hate to say that about the first Disney princess but I think even Walt knew that because the ladies that followed  Snow White actually characteristics that defined them. I will admit that I may be a little nitpick but Snow White was still a decent princess.


The Huntsman voiced by Stuart Buchanan





The Huntsman is the main assassin for The Wicked Queen and she orders him to take Snow whit out to the woods to kill her but he cannot do it, he tells  Snow White to run and instead takes a pig's heart to the Queen to trick her.  Typing this out now, I just now realized how dark that aspect of this film is.


The Prince voiced by  Harry Stockwell





As I said with Snow White, there was no defining characteristic for her, the  same can be said for The Prince.  He is first seen when Snow White is singing and he instantly falls in love with her. There's one cliche I'm glad we moved away from.  He is not seen again until the end of the film and that is to revive Snow White.  It's hard to judge this character because he doesn't do much in the film but I will say that I do like his design. Sorry guys but there is nothing more to say here.


The Seven Dwarfs





While  Snow White and the Prince made not have had any defining characteristics or something that describes their personality, the exact opposite can be said for The Seven Dwarfs. They are practically named after their characterises and personalities. They are miners and they dig but don't what they're diggin' for.  They all live together in a hut in the woods.  They find Snow white there and decide to let her stay. Doc is the leader and just get this out of the way here are the names of all seven Dwarfs with quick descriptions.

1. Doc - The leader of the group and a take charge guy.  He is also the only one to wear glasses

2.  Happy -  The most rotound and he is always cheerful

3. Grumpy -  Never happy with anything

4. Bashful - The shy one of the group

5. Sneezy - Has bad allegeries

6.  Sleepy - Likes taking naps and is barely awake

7. Dopey - He doesn't talk much and he is the goofball of the group. He's the youngest of all Seven Dwarfs.

It seems that out of all seven both Dopey and Grumpy have become the most popular. Which, I can understand because Grumpy is perhaps the most relatable as we all tend to be a little Grump from time to time and Dopey, well he's just funny.

Music

Now this is where the film truly shines. The music in this movie is great  and it has held up to this day.

   Heigh-Ho





This song right here is a lot of fun and a great way to introduce the Dwarfs. It's fun and easy to sign along with. The  Dwarfs say they don't what they are digging for but they are just having fun and you have got to love the whole Heigh-Ho right before  the whistling. Something I have not been able to master. Personally, my favorite part of this song is when they are crossing the log. I don't why but I like that scene, it's pretty to look at.


I'm Wishing/One Song



I'm going to be honest this song can annoy me at certain parts because of the way Snow White sings it but once we get past that, it isn't a bad song at all. It is a beautiful song about Snow White hoping to find love and then The Prince comes in and  I like his performance because he is soft yet powerful with his voice. He makes  this song work for me.


Villains

The Magic Mirror voiced by Moroni Olsen




The Magic Mirror is basically a slave of The Wicked Queen. He is the one who answers the questions and he sets the plot in motion when he tells The Wicked Queen that Snow White is the fairest of them all. Honestly, he is perhaps one of the creepiest looking characters in this film as he is bodiless face trapped in a mirror.


The Wicked Queen/Hag  voiced by Lucille La Verne





Guys, this just dawned on me out of all the movie reviews, this is the first female villain. Anyways, The Wicked Queen. Well, she certainly lives up to her name as she is evil because she makes her stepdaughter work as a maid and tries to have her killed. Why, because out of spite? She is angered when she learns that Snow White is still so she transforms herself into The Hag and gives her the poisoned apple.  The Wicked Queen is quite a treat as she is one of the best villains and I even remember reading Walt saying that he thought that The Wicked Queen was too scary and they should never make another villain as scary as her.


My Final Thoughts

For all the nitpicking I did, this is a good film and I have do a ton of respect for it being the first fully animated film. It's beautiful to look at and the characters while some may be lacking personality are likable. As always, if you haven't seen this film and you'll probably find something to enjoy.  If you have seen this film before, I say give this film another watch and you may find other things to appreciate.


Updates & Announcments

All right guys just as a reminder, I'm looking for Requests for Return of The Requests.  Also I'll be putting up a list of songs that you can vote for the first ever Fan voted Top 6 which I started back around my birthday and well, I have kind of forgotten about it but do know that when that is put up, that will be the last day to vote and oh yeah, Darkfan21 wanted me to tell you guys, he might be stopping by with some sort of request or something. Just know I won't be here when he shows up.

  6. The more you pay attention to your nails the easier it will be to
    stop nail biting for good. To stop biting nails, your physician might
