Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Diamond Edition Review & Coupon
Who's the fairest of them all? Starting tomorrow, Snow White will be once again! Disney is releasing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Diamond Edition, a fun combo pack of a DVD and Blue-ray with special features.
Originally released in 1937, as the very first animated feature film, it helped spur every little girl's fantasy of being a princess and finding her prince. Of course, that included my little princess, who had never seen Snow White until One2One Network sent us the Diamond Edition to review (Yes, I should be labeled an evil Queen for not making sure she'd watched it before now. I mean she is already four...lol).
There is a reason that it's a classic, and won an Academy Award (including an extra 7 "dwarf" Oscars!) in 1939. It still has the power to enthrall and makes us shiver at the witch, even after all these years.
In my opinion, this is one where the extras make all the difference. On the Blue-ray, the Magic Mirror is your host, taking you through all of the movie and even offering recommendations of what to do next. There are several games including, Jewel Jumble and Dopey's Wild Mine Ride. We didn't get a chance yet, to try Scene Stealer, which uploads a picture and inserts it on the face of a dwarf in the movie. Finally, my son's favorite extra was Tiffany Thornton's music video of "Some Day My Prince Will Come." Most tweener parents will recognize her from Disney's Sonny with a Chance
. We also didn't have time to watch the featurette, Snow White Returns, that would have been similar to a sequel, if it had been released.
This was a lot of fun, brought back a lot of memories, and definitely made some new ones! Hubby had never seen this before and loved getting to watch his little princess enjoy it. My 10 year old son wasn't thrilled with the whole story line, but thought the extras were a blast, so didn't consider it a total loss...lol.
