The beautiful and kindhearted princess Snow White charms every creature in the kingdom except one – her jealous stepmother, the Queen.

But when the Queen tricks Snow White with an enchanted apple, only the magic of true love's kiss can save her!

Did You Know?

While it was in production, the Hollywood movie industry mockingly referred to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as "Disney's Folly". Walt Disney had to mortgage his house to help finance it.

We all know the seven dwarfs today as Grumpy, Dopey, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Bashful and Doc, but several other characters were once considered in their place, such as Awful, Biggy, Blabby, Dirty, Gabby, Gaspy, Gloomy, Hoppy, Hotsy, Jaunty, Jumpy, Nifty and Shifty.
