Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs made history. It was the first full length animated film ever produced. Made by Walt Disney Productions in 1937, it was a milestone in film production and paved the way for further animated films to come, improving on our technology and skills to create the high-tech and extremely detailed animation we have today. But Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is not just a major film because of its impact on animation technology, it also has played a huge part in the childhoods of many people.
However there are positive things we can learn from this film. That if you are a kind, fair and generous person, then it will be a lot easier for you to do well in life, as well as being very rewarding morally. It also teaches you that you may start in a bad situation (with an evil step-mother who wants to kill you and take the throne) you always have a chance to chase your dreams and to make something of yourself. To always remain optimistic is also a message in this film. Snow White always seems happy and content with her life. Whether cleaning floors for her evil witch of a step-mother or tidying a messy cottage of dwarfs, she always seems happy with her lot in life, and of course this optimism eventually pays off because she gets her Prince Charming.
As juicy as an apple, it all comes together in the scrumptious plot. A seemingly innocent girl, treated badly by her step-mother, overcomes hardship and suffering as ever-the-optimist, finds a loving home and eventually gets her happily ever after. It tugs on the heart strings, it fills you with emotion (the ‘silly song’ makes children laugh and you can’t help feel content when Snow is whisked away by the prince) and, as all good films do, it entertains you. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs not only marked the start of animation films, but it also teaches good morals and it does the job of entertaining the masses perfectly.
