Little Snow White vs. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Disney took the ideas and plots from the Brothers Grimm but diverted from the original tale to make the movie more marketable for his audience. Disney then put a more magical twist on the story by including true love’s kiss and the magic used by the Evil Queen. Even though much of the Disney Movie is different, the story still has similarities to the Grimm’s.

  • “Mirror, Mirror, On the wall…” phrase is the same
  • Queen orders huntsman to take Snow White into the forest and kill her
  • He’s suppose to bring the Queen her some kind of organ  
  • Huntsman lets Snow White go and kills a wild animal instead
  • Snow White is afraid in the forest
  • The cottage is empty; Snow White falls asleep in their beds
  • Dwarfs are mesmerized by Snow White’s beauty
  • Snow White is placed in a glass coffin by the dwarfs
  • Prince and Snow White get married
