One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming to life in the motion picture event for the whole family, "Mirror Mirror." A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, "Mirror Mirror" features breakout star Lily Collins ("The Blind Side") as Snow White, a princess in exile, and Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts as the evil Queen who ruthlessly rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince in this magical comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer ("The Social Network") as the Prince, and Nathan Lane ("The Birdcage") as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.

(iPad/iPhone here) Featurette: A Behind the scenes look at Mirror Mirror.
“The lowly shall be exalted and the mighty brought low.” -Ezekiel 21:26
This from Jonathan Lockwood Huie characterizes this Snow White:
“As she passed among the hungry and the dejected,
delivering the rations and water,
she chanted in a low whisper,
‘the spark of the mind - the sparkle of the soul’ …’
‘the spark of the mind - the sparkle of the soul’ …’”
(iPad/iPhone here) Clip: Break a Spell
Not shown in the clip is the answer: True Love’s Kiss.
But what makes this kiss interesting is that it comes from Snow White, not the prince.
Dwarfs as giants. Appearances can be deceptive. Some things are not what they seem.
Virgil: “Trust not too much to appearances.”
(iPad/iPhone here) Clip: Bandits.
This version of Snow White combines other folk tales like Robin Hood.
Elements from of other folk tales include: 1. Snow White is locked away like Rapunzel. 2. Rob the rich and give to the poor like Robin Hood. 3. The dress-up ball from Cinderella. 4. Use of wooden puppets from Pinocchio.
(iPad/iPhone here) Cllp: Puppy Love.
Magic! Like everything else has, involves more than first imagined.
Aesop: “We would often be sorry if our wishes were granted.”
Beautiful landscapes with an Eastern touch.
Human and the environment in harmony.
Beautiful connection between nature and human made structures.
Frederick William Faber: “Every moment of resistance to temptation is a victory.”
And in this telling, Snow White resists the apple!
