THE FULL SCOOP
At long last, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ is stepping into the 21st century with a 4K Ultra HD makeover, thanks to a spanking new scan of its original nitrate film negative. If you thought the Cinderella 4K release was a visual feast, get ready to have your retinas dazzled—the same creative minds are in charge of Snow White’s spruced-up look.
Disney isn’t just stopping at ‘Let It Go’; they’re letting it grow, amping up their remastering game to ensure more iconic films get the 4K treatment. Oh, and don’t forget, a live-action version of Snow White is also cooking up some magic, so mark your calendars!
Disney is pulling out all the stops to celebrate ‘Disney 100,’ and the 4K re-release of their cherished classic, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,’ is a big part of that festivity. For the first time in human history (or at least since 1937), fans can lay their hands on the film starting October 10.
The revamped visuals come courtesy of an all-new scan of the film’s original nitrate negative. That’s right, the same team that sprinkled their fairy dust on the Cinderella 4K release is back at it. Given how Cinderella’s high-res facelift was met with oodles of adoration, expect a lot from this shiny new version of Snow White—a viewing experience you’ve never had before, folks.
Disney’s dedication to breathing new life into their golden age treasures means we can anticipate even more classics making their 4K debuts. While we don’t know yet whether Snow White’s 4K release will include any Easter eggs or bonus features, what we do know is that the film will sport cover art echoing the ‘Disney 100’ design that Cinderella rocked. And if you’re the exclusive type, Best Buy has got you covered with a special steelbook edition.
A Real-Life Snow White is Coming Soon
Speaking of old meets new, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ was the film that set the stage for animated feature films back in 1937 and has held onto its high regard like a stubborn ink stain ever since. Given this, it’s no shocker that Disney is whipping up a live-action adaptation set to hit the big screen next spring. The word is still out on all the nitty-gritty details, but we do know Rachel Zegler will play Snow White, with Gal Gadot flexing her villain muscles as the Evil Queen. So, while waiting for that, fans can take a trip down memory lane—or should I say, through the forest—with the 4K Ultra HD version of the one that started the Disney magic.
Snow White and her gang of seven vertically challenged pals will be up for grabs in 4K Ultra HD format come October 10. And don’t miss the official trailer for this timeless classic, which, if it were any more classic, would need its own museum wing.
