I love it when Disney classics are re-released. I get to add them to our collection and my girls (and my guy) get to experience the same movies I adored when I was little. Sometimes I’m surprised when they enjoy them just as much as I did — and that was certainly the case with Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs. Originally released in 1938, I worried that the movie might be a little too “old fashioned” for my kids and they’d be bored. Thankfully I was wrong! I’m so glad they are able to appreciate a classic!
According to Wikipedia, “At the 11th Academy Awards, Walt Disney was awarded an honorary Oscar, and the film was nominated for Best Musical Score the year before. In 1989, the United States Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry and is ranked in the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest American films, who also named the film as the greatest American animated film of all time in 2008.”
Those are quite the achievements! The movie is now available for the first time ever on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere as well as on Blu-ray Combo Pack for your enjoyment.
In case you aren’t familiar with the movie, here’s the synopsis:
“Forever enchanting and inspiring, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs embodies The Walt Disney Signature Collection’s legacy of animation. In this epic story of love and friendship, the kind and beautiful princess Snow White wins the hearts of the Seven Dwarfs and triumphs over the evil plans of a wicked Queen. Share the movie called “The Greatest Animated Film Of All Time,” (American Film Institute) in High Definition Blu-ray and for the first time ever on Digital HD, with special features for the entire family!”
