Project Disney: Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall

Project Disney officially kicked off last night. First on the list was Walt Disney's first feature length picture from 1937 - Snow White And The Seven Dwarves. Having never seen this one, I was quite looking forward to it. It was the film that started it all. All the other classics on the list came about due to the success of Snow White.

What happened with this, is something I feel will happen with a lot of the movies. I know the story but just haven't seen the movie. The film was not that bad. It wasn't the best Disney movie I have ever seen but I wasn't expecting it to be. It was from 1937 and a feature length animation had not been done before. The visuals were quite raw but I am looking at this as someone who grew up with the well established Disney movies of the 80's and early 90's and into the Pixar era. I did feel the storyline was a bit rushed. There was obviously a bond between Snow White and The Dwarves but it wasn't really showcased. Of the 80 minute running time, there was minimal interaction of the key 8 figures on screen together.

Overall, this achieved what I aim to achieve with this project, to watch the Disney movies I previously wouldn't care for and see the developement of animation over the past 77 years.
