Not impressed with any of those covers. Snow White deserves better.

From a scale from 1-10, how cringe-worthy is this?

I'm definitely NOT buying this release.
this other video shows a clip of one of the other new "bonus features" (not sure this definition is appropriate)
No offense but these seem to cater to very young kids...
Very disappointed

UMMM...

Ok well first off, yes, that rap video was fairly cringe-worthy but actually not as bad as I feared. And at least it was brief.

The Fairest Facts of All didn't bother me. I have no problem with that.

But what I do have a problem with is the "Behind the Magic" special told us the ink and painters only added a single drop of red paint/dye/whatever into Snow White's cheeks to make the color, but then this "Fact" tells us it was make-up. SO WHICH IS IT?!

That rap video is awful! I can't believe they even decided to include such a pathetic excuse of a bonus feature for a classic such as Snow White. On the D23 website they included this article:

https://d23.com/heigh-ho-snow-white-com ... igital-hd/

The video presents some of the other bonus features this release will include, and I'm very interested in some of them. It's such a pity they won't include the ABC Special on the disc, because I still did not get a chance to see it yet. :(

I'm definitely buying this one, since it's my favorite Disney film (heck, I think my favorite movie, period) of all time, and I love collecting everything related to it.

I didn't watch the special, and nor am I a Snow White expert, but I've read and seen multiple times that it was make-up applied to her face if that's any help.

That is of help, but the special said something like "There was a rumor women used their own make-up in Snow White's cheeks" and then said it was a drop of red paint. But I thought I remembered reading in a book the women used blush and Walt said, "You know exactly where to put it?" and such. I don't know what to believe, but thanks for adding some info.

The running time for the new bonus features has been released. It's pathetic. :facepalm:

Hungry Hobos (5 min 23 sec) *Digital Exclusive*
In Walt’s Words: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (4 min 22 sec)
Iconography (7 min 15 sec)
@DisneyAnimation: Designing Disney’s First Princess (5 min 15 sec)
The Fairest Facts of Them All: 7 Facts You May Now Know About Snow White (4 min 35 sec)
Snow White in Seventy Seconds (1 min 12 sec)
Alternate Sequence: The Prince Meets Snow White (3 min 39 sec)

Also, when you buy the digital release you get to download a "DisneyGraph" which is marketing speak for this Snow White drawing by Mark Henn.

Yikes, that is bad. Hold onto your Platinum & Diamond Editions for sure. That's what I'm doing and I'm skipping this release.

Ive been collecting the Target digibooks and I sorta feel compelled to buy the Snow White one, but otherwise I would have passed on this release.

USA Today ran an interesting piece about Snow White. I'm guessing it's because of the Blu-ray coming out soon. Still, enjoy!

Very interesting article! Thanks for sharing! Definitely showed the prince behaving badly! But I wonder what much is left to see of the scene if I purchase the movie...

I wonder what extras from this film are left that have not been released that your average movie watcher is going to care about. Notice I didn't say collector of film historian.

Thanks for the picture of the DisneyGraph Sotiris, it's pretty nice, but a whole gallery of art from the original production was in this release, that would be the only kind of pictures worth getting this release.

In the review they mention what might be the only noteworthy bonus feature of this release

NEW! (sort of) Disney's First Feature: The Making of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1080p, 33:15): A lengthier version of the supplement entitled The One that Started It All found on the Diamond Edition release, Disc 2

The running time of The One that Started It All was 17 minutes so while I would love to watch this new bonus feature, the extra 15 or minutes or so do not justify the 20$.
I wish I could find it in a torrent somewhere.

Based on the reviews and runtimes listed above, that brings us to roughly 40 minutes of new bonus content (with the lengthier version of the making-of featurette taken into account). Some of it's pure fluff. Some of it sounds like stuff I'd love to see.

But I'll be passing on this one. Once again, Disney has dropped way too much from the previous releases to justify purchasing this. I can't keep dancing this dance. I'd be happy to buy this movie a third time if Disney was putting together a definitive release, but they don't need to because they're Disney and it'll sell no matter what.

Maybe one day they'll give us everything in one package. Until then, I'm content with my Platinum and Diamond editions.

What a wasted opportunity.

It would be a waste of money. It has the same video/audio and adds only paltry new bonus features (and loses others). Even if you're craving the digital code, you could probably purchase it off of someone for much less than importing the whole package.
