The beautiful and kindhearted princess Snow White charms every creature in the kingdom except one - her jealous stepmother, the Queen. When the Magic Mirror proclaims Snow White the fairest one of all, she must flee into the forest, where she befriends the lovable seven dwarfs - Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, and Dopey. But when the Queen tricks Snow White with an enchanted apple, only the magic of true love's kiss can save her.Written by

In the dwarves' home, almost every wooden surface has an animal carved into it. Almost every item is carved into the shape of an animal. Even the edge of each stair-step is the face of an owl. Only the door to the bedroom looks to have smiling human-shaped creatures on it. See more »
When the dwarfs arrive home after working, they drop their tools and scurry behind the trees. A couple of minutes later, they have their tools again. See more »
Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.
What wouldst thou know, my Queen?
Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?
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.
Alas for her! Reveal her name.
Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.

Many countries deemed the film too terrifying, so foreign prints were edited. On initial release, England banned the film from unaccompanied children under 16, while in Sweden, an unedited version of the film was not released until 1992, at which point it was okayed for children under seven years with a parent. In that country, it had been edited by eight minutes in the 1960s and four minutes in the 1980s, trimming Snow White's flight through the forest, the Queen transforming into the Witch, and the Seven Dwarfs chasing the Witch up the mountain.

Snowwhite and the 7 dwarfs is one of the best cartoon-movies ever made, and is much better than many of Disney`s newer movies. The animation is brilliant, and could teach many modern cartoons a lesson or two about how to make a good cartoon-movie. I guess that I don`t have to tell you much about the story, since most of you are familiar with it, but I`ll tell you some of it(in case some of you have missed out on this classic). Snowwhite(a princess) is the most beautiful woman in the country, which her stepmother(the queen) doesn`t like. The queen orders her best hunter to kill Snowwhite when she is picking flowers. The hunter is not able to kill Snowwhite, and she runs deeper into the forest. The eventually discovers a small house, which is the dwarfs` house. The queen finds out that Snowwhite is still alive. Snowwhite is a true classic, with superb animation and stunning soundtrack. It was also a groundbreaking movie, which meant that Disney could produce more high-class cartoon-movies to an audience which was gasping for more. 9,5/10
