Updated: Sep 10, 2023


AFTER THE recent 4K restoration of animation classics “Cinderella” (1950) and Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993), Walt Disney Studios is jumping full force into 4K Ultra HD physical discs. On October 10, the studio’s first feature-length

animation masterpiece “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937) will be released on 4K and Blu-ray after an extensive special 4K restoration, using new scans of the original 35mm nitrate negative.

The beautiful and kindhearted princess Snow White charms every creature in the kingdom except one -- her jealous stepmother, the Queen. When the Magic Mirror proclaims Snow White is the fairest one of all, she must flee into the forest, where she befriends the lovable seven dwarfs -- Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy and Dopey. But when the Queen tricks Snow White with an enchanted apple, only the magic of true love's kiss can save her!


Video – A new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative (1.37:1 aspect ratio), supervised by Disney Animation experts Eric Goldberg and Michael Giaimo and features HDR10 (disc) grading and more likely Dolby Vision (Digital). The video will be encoded onto the smaller 66GB disc.

Audio – UPDATED: English 5.1 DTS-HDMA, English AD 2.0 Dolby Digital, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, French 5.1 DTA-HDHR
