Snow White is the title character from a European fairy tale, most commonly associated with the Brothers Grimm. Several versions of the story have been told and retold over the years, but the most popular is Disney's 1937 feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which first gave the Seven Dwarves distinct personalities and names.
