Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Diamond Edition
(2 Disc Set)

Having recently watched Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on DVD, I was also given the change to view the Blu-ray version and like the aforementioned format, the Blu-ray version has received a rather impressive facelift that has had the video and audio cleaned up considerably. Best of all, this 1937 feature film comes alive again in 2009 and once again, we were captivated by this enchanting movie about a princess and her seven new found friends.

The story begins with the wicked Queen who asks her magic mirror who is the fairest one of all. For years, the Queen was the fairest one of all, however unfortunately one day, this all changes and the mirror proclaims Snow White as the fairest one of all. Outraged by this decision, the Queen orders her Huntsmen to murder her beautiful step daughter, whether this is triggered by jealous, insanity or both, only the Queen knows.

Thankfully the Huntsmen is unable to perform this task and even worse, bring the heart of Snow White back to her as proof. He warns the princess and from there she flees into the forests, only to meet the seven dwarfs.

With parallels to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White enters their home, cleans it up and falls asleep in their beds until the the 7 dwarfs return to find an unexpected visitor and immediately, just as do the forest creatures, they fall in love with Snow White... even Grumpy.

Sadly while Snow White is hiding with Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy and Sneezy, the seven dwarfs, the Queen finds out that the Huntsmen has brought her not the heart of a human but the heart of a pig.

Taking matters into her own hand, the Queen creates a dastardly spell that turns her into an old hag in order to give the beautiful princess a magic Apple that will forever keep her asleep. Unfortunately Snow White succumbs to the Queen and without spoiling the story anymore, it's up to the seven dwarfs and a handsome prince to save the day.

Like the DVD version, the animation for a movie from 1937 is thoroughly impressive that boasts exceptional picture quality and it almost looks like a painting come to life. The only drawback to the movie like the DVD version is unfortunately the audio quality, however thankfully once you get immersed into the movie, it becomes a thing of the past. I understand that the cartoon was made in 1937, however Disney should be commended in transferring this to Blu-ray and t 72 years of age, you'll be pushing it to look this good! Of course, the songs in the movie are truly memorable classics like "Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, we're off to work we go!" and is probably an element of the film which made it so popular among all viewers.

Featuring a variety of genres in this classic tale from comedy to romance and adventure, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a must have collection for almost everyone. Whether you have children or wish to walk down memory lane, this movie can be watched time and time again.

Of course to celebrate the Diamond anniversary of Snow White, Disney have released this movie as a 2-disc edition that features some memorable special features that include commentary, the songs of Snow White and some great deleted scenes and explanations behind the creation of this magical movie. Lastly, add in some great games and activities and you have a must have Blu-ray for Christmas.

Highly Recommended!
