“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was released by Walt Disney Studios in 1937. The movie was the first full-length cel-animated feature in motion picture history AND not only the first animated feature film produced in the United States, but also the first produced in full color! Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is considered the first Walt Disney Animated Classic.
Disney has announced a new collection of DVDs called their Disney Diamond Collection. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the first movie to be released to this collection by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. The movie will hit stores on October 6th in a Blu-ray combo pack. The standard Definition DVD of the movie will be available for purchase on November 24th.
