Overview

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was for years the cornerstone achievement of the Walt Disney empire, so it comes as no surprise that Disney pulled out all the stops for their DVD release of this enduring classic. The film has been given a THX-approved transfer in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio, and along with a restored Dolby Digital Mono version of the soundtrack, there's a new Dolby Digital 5.1 audio mix (as well as a French soundtrack in Dolby Digital 5.1). The film features commentary from Roy E. Disney, (the son of Walt's brother and business partner), as well as comments about the film recorded by Walt Disney during his lifetime. There's also a short documentary on the making of the film, called "Still the Fairest of Them All," a new music video featuring Barbra Streisand performing " Some Day My Prince Will Come," and two interactive video games. There's also an entire second disc of bonus material, including original artwork, storyboards, and animation tests never before seen by the public, as well as: the original opening and closing credits from the film's initial RKO release; vintage trailers and publicity material; a look at how the film was restored for DVD release; footage from the film's world premier; and much, much more. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first full-length animated feature, and arguably the most influential; this meticulously assembled set leaves no question of the film's charm, as well as its lasting importance.
