The wicked Queen, infuriated that she is no longer the fairest in the land, sends the huntsman to kill Snow White and return with her heart. Unable to go through with the act, the huntsman sends Snow White running into the woods where she comes across a house belonging to seven dwarves. When the wicked Queen discovers that Snow White still lives, she takes matters into her own hands.

Disney’s first full-length animated feature was never one of my favourites until watching it again a few years ago. As an adult I found that I appreciated Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs much more than I ever did as a child.

Seeing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on the big screen was a real treat. The plot is brilliant in its simplicity. The animation is not as dated as one would think. The tidbits of humour scattered throughout Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs still brought a smile to my face while rewatching.

The nostalgic value of seeing a movie from the 1930s in a modern cinema makes it an experience to consider. When it’s a ground-breaking and classic film like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, it’s an experience not to be missed.

Rating: 5/5

“Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.”
