FYS Week 5
Snow White is a tale of maturation and growing up. In the Disney version, they add songs and adjust certain plot points to make it seem more mainstream and more for children. They change the scene where the queen asks for Snow White's lungs and liver and she asks for her heart instead. She also makes no mention of eating them. In the Story, the Dwarves have no names and are actually neat and tidy. The Disney film takes away most of the original motifs and turns it into a Damsel in Distress story. There is in fact only one attempt by the queen to poison Snow White as opposed to the three in the original story.
