Snow White is one of the most beloved and popular fairytale princesses of all the time. First created by the Brothers Grimm in 1812 in Germany, Snow White has since taken a hold of the stage, silver screen, and audiences around the world. The first play adaptation of Snow White took place in 1912 and was entitled "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". Starring in the lead Broadway role as Snow White was Marguerite Clark who also reprised the role in the first full-length silent film, "Snow White", in 1916.
In 1937, Disney released its first full-length animated feature film, entitled "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" where the blue, red, and yellow dress that so many costumes are based on was first seen. In this film, the fairytale was brought to life with fairies, an evil queen, all seven dwarfs and a prince. Most recently, two film studios, Relativity and Universal Pictures, both came out with two distinctive Snow White movies. The Relativity film, entitled "Mirror Mirror" (March 2012) starred Lily Collins as the iconic fairytale princess and Julia Roberts as the evil queen. A comedic act, the film focused on the humorous side of the classic tale.
A darker version of Snow White's story, "Snow White and the Huntsman", arrived in theaters on June 8, 2012 and starred Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron as the evil queen, Ravenna, and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman. This film took place in a medieval time period and focused on Queen Ravenna's vanity and her need to kill Snow White to retain her beauty and achieve immortality. Throughout this film, the plot was similar to previous adaptations, except the happiness and "true love" themes were completely void.
Another smaller adaptation of the Snow White story is also seen in the ABC television series, "Once Upon a Time". Renewed for a second season, this fairytale drama series focuses on the evil queen's hold over the small town of Storybrooke, Maine. Throughout this series, Emma Swan, Snow White's daughter, is sent on a mission to break the curse that has caused the residents (all fairytale characters) to forget who they are. Starring Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White, Lana Parilla as the evil queen, and Josh Dallas as Prince Charming, the show has been televisions number one drama on Sunday nights.
