You may think you know the story of Snow White, but this classic fairy tale is about to get a modern twist in the action-packed animated adventure Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs! This time, it’s the princess who will save the prince(s) — all seven of them… you see, the dwarfs aren’t exactly who you thought they were.
This family film from Lionsgate premieres on Digital and On Demand on September 18 and will be available to own on Blu-ray™ and DVD on September 22 — and I’ve got the perfect treat for your movie night!
About Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs
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!
Chloë 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. 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.
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.
