10 Magical Snow White Adaptations

I’ve always known that Snow White was a popular fairytale but it wasn’t until thinking about how many Snow White adaptations of the story I’ve seen that I realized how popular.

Happily, the story continues to be retold and retold, often with new and exciting twists that make us fall in love with the story all over again.

Here are ten different Snow White adaptations from over the years!

Betty Boop as Snow White (1933)

Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

In the midst of all the Snow White adaptations, this is the one that started it all. As Disney’s first feature-length film, this movie is still a wonderful classic.

Snow White: Faerie Tale Theater (1984)

This is very for-TV-fare with simple sets and soapy acting. Still it has a subtle childhood charm that makes it fun.

Snow White (1987)

This is a fun version as it’s a musical; the songs are hit or miss but there are some catchy ones like More Beautiful Than Me sung by the evil queen or Every Day sung by Snow White.

Snow White: Fairest of Them All (2001)

I always like it when a version attempts to add in some new twists and in this Snow White, her father is alive, which makes for an interesting take on the timeless story.
