Abby - Snow White Disney 1937

These scenes are from the animated Disney movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs made in 1937. The new techniques used in this full-length animated feature included 477,000 handcrafted drawings which would then be photographed and changed into animation. The movie was colour and had direct sound.
The colour and brightness of the above scene is very strong and shows life and happiness. It is busy, loud and has lots of movement. This contrasts with dull colours when the scenes are sad as in the bed scene. This scene is quiet and peaceful with little movement. Both have Snow White in the centre of the picture creating harmony.
The animals are shown as caricatures making them look sweet and cute. Snow White is shown as a substantially human figure, as are the Prince and Wicked Queen, moving into the realism which Disney animation used from this time.

These posters advertise the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from 1937. It was Disney’s first successful full length animated feature. The posters are well balanced with the text being in an important position and main characters shown.
The graphics in this movie influenced following animated features such as Pinocchio and Fantasia in the early 40s.
