This documentary which shows how Snow White came to life, was released on the Platinum Edition DVD of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" as one of the many bonus features. The most interesting thing was how much the animators improved on their drawing from 1934 to the finished product. Definatly worth a view.
This featurette takes an interesting look at the making of Snow White & the
Seven Dwarfs and its implications for the Disney Company. It first looks at
what was going on at the Disney Company before the feature was undertaken.
Things seemed to be going smoothly for the Disney Company, but if they
didn't make an attempt at feature animation, they would have to settle with
being a little cartoon company. Snow White was probably the biggest gamble
any movie studio took. If Snow White failed, Disney would probably be no
more, and who knows where the world of entertainment be without
The featurette then took a look at the construction process of the film. I especially liked early footage of Walt Disney acting out the characters to give his animators an idea of what he wanted the film to look like. It was also interesting to see interviews of the legendary animators that worked on the film. I found it interesting to hear what audience reaction was to Snow White when it was first released. Animators were approached by their movie idols and congratulated for a job well done. And audience members were actually moved to tears during the movie, something unprecedented in an animation project. Snow White was truly a groundbreaking experience. From there, with Snow White being such a phenomenal success, the Disney Studios had plenty of money and room to try more new and innovative projects.
I learned all of this by watching this very informative special on the Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs Platinum Edition DVD. It was truly 45 minutes well spent.
My IMDb Rating: 9/10
