The first, and by far most memorable full-length animated feature from the Disney Studios, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" may have been superseded technically by many of the films that followed it. But its simple story of a charming little princess saved from the evil deeds of her wicked step-mother, the queen, by a group of seven adorable dwarfs made history when it was first released in December, 1937 and has since become an incomparable screen classic.
|violence||1/10 The queen sends a huntsman to kill Snow White and bring back her heart inside a box as proof. The huntsman sneaks up on Snow White with a menacing look on his face and his dagger drawn. However, he decides to spare her and lets her run away. Snow White runs into the woods and is frightened several times. This scene is rather dramatic and can be unnerving for younger viewers. Later, the queen tries to prove to the magic mirror that Snow White is dead by showing him a box that allegedly contains her heart (it's that of a pig). The heart is not seen, but the box has a picture of a heart with a dagger piercing through it. Later she turns into the witch which can be scary. The witch falls off a cliff and a giant rock falls after her. The witch dies but it is not shown.|
