The opportunity to assist in the restoration of “Snow White” was both an honor and a challenge, said director Eric Goldberg, who collaborated with animator Mike Giaimo. He added that they both tried to faithfully preserve the original color palette.
“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is still considered an unmatched example of animation. In 1939, the film was honored with an honorary Oscar as a “great film innovation that enchanted millions and initiated a completely new field of entertainment.” Walt Disney received the award in the form of one large statuette, accompanied by seven small ones.
“Snow White” regularly appears in the American Film Institute’s rankings. In 2008, it ranked first on the list of the top 10 films in 10 classic film genres (in the animated film category). Over the past 25 years, it has also appeared on lists of the 100 greatest American films of all time, the 100 greatest heroes and villains of all time, and the 100 greatest film songs of all time.

“Snow White” for modern times? What do we know about the live-action version of the classic animation?
Work is currently underway on the live-action version of “Snow White.” Its premiere is scheduled for next year. The title role will be played by Rachel Zegler, known for “West Side Story.” During last year’s D23 Expo, she had this to say about her character:
Snow White is a character you remember, but she has definitely been adapted to modern times. There is a strong emphasis on what it truly means to be the fairest of them all. For Snow White, this means finding her own voice and her own path, so she can be a just ruler.
