Having gone through both Platinum Collection and Diamond Collection cycles, Disney is now moving to the next phase of its home release strategy for the Walt Disney Animation Studios classics: the Signature Collection. And which film will kick it off? Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), of course.
Snow White was the first feature length animated film from Walt Disney’s company and arguably the first feature-length animated film ever. It is thus appropriate for it to begin the next phase, which also marks the first time that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has ever been available for Digital HD download.
The release includes new and in-depth bonus material like, “In Walt’s Words: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Iconography,” “@DisneyAnimation: Designing Disney’s First Princess,” “The Fairest Facts of Them All: 7 Facts You May Not Know About Snow White,” “Snow White in Seventy Seconds,” “Alternate Sequence: The Prince Meets Snow White,” and the recently discovered and restored Oswald the Lucky Rabbit short, “Hungry Hobos,” which will be a digital download exclusive.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs follows a beautiful princess that is the fairest of them all, much to the horror of an evil queen, whose mirror warns her of Snow White’s beauty. Hence, to avoid beheading, Snow White runs away into the forest and befriends a hippie commune of seven hard working wee people, who will protect her from everything but rotting fruit.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is an obvious classic and you will be able to own it for the first time on Digital HD on Tuesday, Jan. 19 or on its all-new Blu-ray Combo Pack on Feb. 2.
