Finding Your True self with Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs

Every now and then a movie comes along with a great message and gets lost because not many people see it. Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs is a fun retelling of the Snow White story but with a message about being true to yourself and those around you. While my family and I enjoyed the movie, we all agreed that it started a little slow before the storyline really picked up. 

A classic fairy tale gets a modern twist in the action-packed animated adventure Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs, now on Digital and On Demand and available on Blu-ray™ and DVD this past September 22 from Lionsgate. ChloĆ« Grace Moretz (Bolt, Inside Out), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games series), Gina Gershon (TV’s “Riverdale”), Patrick Warburton (TV’s “Family Guy,” The Emperor’s New Groove), and Jim Rash (TV’s “Community”) lend their vocal talents to this humorous and heartwarming retelling of the Snow White fable, only this time it’s the princess who must save the prince(s) – all seven of them! This family-friendly film has “a strong body-positive theme that emphasizes the beauty of characters of all shapes and sizes” (Common Sense Media), and received the Dove Seal of Approval for All Ages.

This outrageous fairy tale spoof starts as Snow White steals a pair of red shoes that transform her into a princess. Meanwhile, a witch’s curse turns seven brave princes into dwarfs, forcing them to seek out the princess, hoping for a kiss to break their spell. Together, they must face Snow White’s wicked stepmother – who will stop at nothing to get her precious shoes back – and, along the way, learn that true beauty lies within!

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs was directed by Sung-ho Hong, and features character design and animation direction from Jin Kim, who worked on Disney’s animated classics Fantasia 2000, Frozen II, and Tangled. Music is by Primetime Emmy® award-winning composer Geoff Zanelli (2006, Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, “Into the West”; Emmy® nomination: 2010, Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, “The Pacific”), whose theatrical work includes Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Voice direction is from Tony Bancroft, the director of Disney’s Mulan. It was produced by Locus Animation Studio.

Go behind the scenes of this must-own animated adventure with enchanting Blu-ray and DVD bonus features, including two “making-of” featurettes and two music videos featuring the all-new original songs! The Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the price of $21.99 and $19.98, respectively.

  • “Something So Beautiful” Music Video

Final Thoughts: The movie has a great message about being yourself, loving yourself, and loving people for who they are not what they look like. This is a great message for children to see and learn about especially with all that they might see on social media. 

Kid-Friendly: The movei is very kid-friendly. I don't remember any jokes or scenes that might have been too much for kids. There are a few scares with some of the "tree" monsters, but nothing that will really scare a child. 

Violence: There are some fight/action scenes but it is al animated violence. Being that this is an animate movie, the violence is pretty tame and humorous at times.
