Christmas ornament

And It’s Happily Ever After for Snow White, Prince Charming, and Disney

While some of the ornaments in the Disney Store’s Moments that Made Disney series are more for the DisNerds, there are some moments that everyone can name without thinking about it.  That’s definitely the case with the fourth in the series, which commemorates  the year that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs opens.  It is such a huge moment not only in Disney history but film history it had to be included.

The ornament features Snow White and Prince Charming from the end of the movie.  The Prince is holding Snow White in his arms as he carries her away after waking her up from the spell she was under.  They are looking at each other and smiling.  The Prince is standing in grass that is sitting on the circular base of the ornament.  There are even purple flowers at his feet

I love this ornament for a couple of reasons.  First, the Disney Princes don’t get enough credit for their part in the happy endings.  It’s nice to see Prince Charming get included in this ornament.  I almost would have expected to see Snow White with the dwarfs since they are also in the title of the film.  The sculpt of these two characters is great.  But the way they are looking at each other is the second thing I love about it.  The look between them perfectly captures the look and love captured on the screen in the movie as they look into each other’s eyes.

Like the others in the series, this ornament has a nice flat base, so you can set it out and display year round.  But if you want to treat this as an ornament, you’ll find a red ribbon tied through the loop on the top of Prince Charming’s head.  That’s got to hurt.  But his sacrifice is worth it since the ornament hangs straight.

It’s hard to imagine a world without animated movies, and those of us who love the format owe a debt to Walt Disney and the huge risk he took for this movie.  Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Opens is an ornament that every Disney fan will be proud to display on their tree.
