Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on Blu-ray, A Charlie Brown Christmas on Blu-ray, Plus More
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the time-honored story of a beautiful princess whose blossoming beauty disturbs her stepmother the Queen. Each day the Queen asks a mysterious magic mirror the quintessential question: “mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all.” As long as the mirror answers the Queen’s name, all is well. However, when one day the mirror replies with Snow White’s name, the evil Queen begins her quest to kill the young girl, so she may once again be “the fairest of them all.” Snow White’s escape from the evil Queen’s plan leads her deep into the forest and to a small cottage where she meets, in one of the most famous scenes in motion picture history, the Seven Dwarfs. Once “off to work” they go, the wicked Queen persuades Snow White to take a bite of a poisonous apple that places a powerful sleeping curse on the young beauty. Heartbroken, the dwarfs make a glass coffin for their friend, because she is too beautiful to bury. Only when a handsome Prince — who had previously fallen in love with Snow White — finds her and kisses her, does she awaken, “to live happily ever after.”

About Snow White's Disney View:
Walt Disney Studios, a leader in innovation, continues the latest advancement in home entertainment – Disney View -- bringing Walt Disney’s classic animation into today’s era of widescreen hi-definition viewing.
Utilizing Blu-ray technology, viewers can now expand their viewing experience beyond a beloved film’s original aspect ratio. Drawing beyond the borders of classic full-frame cinema, Disney View fills the otherwise dark edges of the screen with beautiful original imagery created specifically to enhance the film-viewing experience.
Over 18 watercolor panels of original artwork were commissioned by renowned artist Toby Bluth. An accomplished writer, director, designer and artist, Bluth served as Art Director for several Walt Disney Studio Productions including, “The Three Musketeers” as well as “The Tigger Movie”. A respected artist for Disney Art Editions and the Disney artist chosen to launch the Disney View feature with 'Pinocchio', Toby Bluth was the ideal artist to continue this visual innovation with Walt Disney's classic, SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS.A life-long admiration of Walt Disney’s creative achievements within animation reflects in Bluth’s passion for his craft.
Inspired by legendary illustrator Gustaf Tengrenn, who Disney recruited to work on SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS. Bluth paid careful attention to the rich palette of Tengrenn’s prevalent style. The color and design of each panel was carefully matched to the direct scenes in the film. Lighting effects were added as each Disney View panel was then digitally enhanced to suit the environments of the film and to ease the eye into a widescreen environment.
Walt Disney’s beloved animated feature films enter a new realm through Disney View, bringing today’s technology to classic entertainment, only with Disney Blu-ray on October 6, 2009.
