Yep, romanticizing the industry of mining... replete as it is with underground gas explosions, (naked) child labour, suffocation from gas leaks, and all manner of bountiful things...

@Sunny Fox I think you're really overthinking the mining scene here. It basically introduces the dwarfs, their passion for mining, and their cartoony nature/behavior to the audience.

Oh god, you have no idea how much you make me happy with this post. :pinkie:

Sure, the movie aged a bit. But i still consider it one of the most important movies of all time. I think even the existance of shows like My Little pony can be dated back to Snow White, since so many people working on MLP have watched the movies of Disney, including Snow White.

This movie deserves all the praise in the world. :)

Even more importantly, without animated movies like Snow White, it's possible the medium of animation may not exist today, much less evolve.

Animation would still have existed, the problem is that before Snow White, no one took it seriously.  Animated shorts were commonly made to play before actual feature films to keep the kids entertained, and nobody believed that it would be possible to hold their attention through a full feature-length film.  Of course, Walt Disney proved them wrong by making Snow White the first feature-length animated film.  Sure, it hasn't aged well and there are plenty of "not so progressive" tropes, but this was a huge milestone not just in the animation industry, but in the movie industry as a whole.  It showed that not only can you make an entertaining animated feature-length film for children, but that you could make money while doing it.

I'm still not so sure, for the reason you gave. Before Snow White, no one took it seriously. Snow White was a monumental risk, not just for being a full-length film, but for animation altogether. If Snow White failed in reception and profit, who knows what would happen to the field.

Here’s my best moment!

”Ain’t he sweet?”

”Smells like a... petunia!”

”He sure is cute!”

*hysterical laughter*

”YOU’LL PAY DEARLY FOR THIS!!”
