This week's movie and book is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs . Turns out the story Little Snow White is available free on the internet, and you can find it here! I am very lucky to have a husband who loves Disney as much as I do!! My bedroom is full of Disney snowglobes and other goodies. I will show pictures of those later as we get to the movies that correlate with them. I have also been to both Disneyland and Disneyworld. Super super super super super fun! I mean... I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated just to DISNEY!
I do love the story though in the movie. Now-a-days you don't get Disney movies like this. Murder!!! Kill Snow White and get her heart! I just love it! I love how the villains in the older Disney movies are true villains and evil. Confession: one thing I love about Disney is the villains! Plus how cool is the evil queen when she has a Magic Mirror??? (Which I loved when the mirror was featured in the Shrek movie!).
Now... about the dwarfs.. yeesh they are annoying. I love their music in the film... but they are just too goofy for me. Of course the need to be the humor in the movie. In the book they really have no character at all... just apart of the story.
Snow White... she is actually quite young in the original story. A child age seven! Obviously Disney would need her to be much older for the story to work, so I am happy with this change. I do actually feel bad for her... here is a girl who has done nothing wrong but exist and then is chased down because of it.
Also... for you Disney fans out there... if you have not checked out Annie Leibovitz photos for the Disney campaign you must do!! I wish I could make the images larger... but the way my blog is set up they go off the sides! :(
Though this is my least favorite movie... everyone who is a Disney fan should watch it and own it.
