The evil witch Dellamorta cursed princess Rose when she was a baby. Before she turns 18, Rose will get stung in the finger by a sharp object and she and the whole castle will fall into a hundred year long sleep unless her true love would kiss her. The night before her birthday she sends her bf Jack to the 7 dwarfs, who live behind the 7 mountains to hide until after Rose has turned 18. Unfortunately he gets lost and captured by Dellamorta's dragon Burner. So at the party, Rose gets stung in the finger, and everyone falls into deep sleep. Everyone but the 7 dwarfs of course who will go on a journey to save Jack so he can save Rose.Written by
...and let's not forget her hot pink party outfit.
Most reviewers write this German CGI production off as toddler fodder. I disagree!
The movie gives nods to traditional fairytale characters (the dragon for instance seems strongly influenced by Disney's Reluctant Dragon), however Boris Aljinovic + Harald Siepermann managed to keep their satirical story and gags original. The animation quality of SHREK and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON may be a notch better (they probably had bigger budgets too), but I appreciated THE SEVENTH DWARF's design, style and colorful sets just the same.
And the music, well, those dreadful obligatory animation songs...here they at least get accompanied by some jolly shoe shuffling and tap dancing.
All in all I find The Seventh Dwarf good fun & great eye candy for any age. Yes, 60+ adults too.
