The 1937 Disney film of Snow White shares the same main idea and plot as the original Grimm tale. The main plot of the story is that Snow White is living with a mother figure whom becomes jealous of Snow White’s beauty. Out of jealousy, she spends her days trying to kill Snow White so that the Queen may once again become the fairest of them all. Of course, there is the other main idea of love in the Disney version that helps the story end in the famous “happily ever after”. Similar to most, if not all of Disney’s revisions of the stories, he makes slight changes throughout the movie to make it appropriate for children to watch. In the Disney version, the Queen is still killed, but it is caused by her trying to kill the seven dwarfs. Although death in a Disney movie is still violent for children, it is not as bad when it is an accident like her falling off the cliff because it gives the kids a sense of victory that the evil witch has been destroyed. In the Grimm story the Queen is forced to dance herself to death which would portray a bad message to the younger viewers if Disney were to keep that in his film. Walt Disney makes the tales into cartoons and takes out graphic violence of the story in order for the movie to be seen and enjoyed by people of any age.
