  • So having just recently re-watched Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, I noticed at the very end that as Snow and the Prince are riding off together, they stop and gaze at a hazy castle in the clouds. I know that it could just be a very tall castle that clouds are actually formed around and below it.

    However, it has led me to wonder if the Queen did actually succeed in killing Snow White, and at the end the Prince could be seen as the being bringing Snow into the afterlife, with the castle being a sort of Heaven. 

    What do you think?

    • Doubt it. If she were successfully killed, I don't think she would actually end up rising from the dead in front of everybody, and then walking away while the Dwarves are celebrating and cheering her on.

    • Good point. I forgot about the Dwarfs celebrating her waking up.

      I was saying that if she had in fact died in the ending of Snow White, they wouldn't have her waking up from the effects of the spell in front of the Seven Dwarfs, have them actually interact and celebrate her revival as she is going with her prince.

      Well, some people survive of poison.

      Oh. Now I get it. I haven't met/watched Snow White for a long time (although I have the doll.)

    • Check out "The Little Matchgirl". That's how I see it ending. The celebration of the dwarves is irrelevant. Whether or not it was the intention of the creators, It is still a work of art and is open to personal interpretation. Thus, I choose to see the ending in this way as it adds to the emotional weight and depth of the film and just makes it more enjoyable for me as a viewer. That's my 2 cents at least :/

    • Snow white dies. The end is her idea of her perfect haven. Where she is surrounded with those she loves and gets taken away by her prince into the castle in the sky. Its the last moment before she slips into death. Where she reaches her happy ever after.

    • Why so serious!? There should be nothing left for imaginative interpretation for a children animation back in 1937!

      And 1st, it says, “the Queen creates a poisoned apple that will put whoever eats it into the "Sleeping Death", a curse that can only be broken by "love's first kiss".”

      2nd, “As Snow White falls asleep the Queen proclaims that she is now the fairest of the land.”

      And 3rd, “ the prince, who had previously met and fallen in love with Snow White, learns of her eternal sleep and visits her coffin. Saddened by her apparent death, he kisses her, which breaks the spell and awakens her.”

      These should be enough prove, shouldn't they?

    • Snow White doesn't die properly, she falls into the 'Sleeping Death' until the Prince kissed her. Then he takes her to his castle, which is among clouds probably because it's in the distance.

    • Maybe you may not want to read my spill on this.... but I think that many old folk tales have been influenced by Biblical themes. I believe that Snow white represents humanity. The whitch wants to be the fairest of them all.... because humanity is created in the image and likeness of God. The devil has always been coveting Gods throne. And she wants to be better and more beautiful then they. The whitch also represents the serpent and Snow white, Eve, who is deceived by the serpent to take of the fruit. The whitch tell snow white the apple is no ordinary apple, it will give you whatever you want. In the Bible the serpent convinces Eve that if she its of the fruit she will be just like God. Snow white like Eve takes the fruit and its of it to get her wish, only to be deceived like Eve by the serpent. Humanity now FALLS asleep, she heeds of a Prince to come and give her a kiss of life. Jesus is the prince who saves humanity from the poison of the fall. She is awaken and she is resurrected and there is celebration. She walks away with her prince... to receive the Kingdom in the sky.

      What if Snow White's stepmother, the Evil Queen, has died after being chased away by the Seven Dwarfs?

      That's actually an interesting take on it. I never caught the biblical symbolism in the story before, but now that you mention it, it really is an interesting way to look at it.
