Since my blog is called Disney With Children it probably comes as no surprise that I have seen Snow White more times than I can count. When I began seeing previews for Mirror Mirror I was curious about this updated Snow White. Could the classic story of Snow White be retold, but still keep the essence of the original.
The answer is yes! The movie turns Snow White into a heroine of her own destiny. Along the way we meet a variety of characters, the Evil Queen played by Julia Roberts, Snow White played by Lily Colins, the Prince played by Armie Hammer, and the lovable servant played by Nathan Lane. Plus 7 adorable Drawfs who give a fresh take on the original characters.
I did not take Julia to the screening I went to-as the showing was later in the evening. While I think she would have enjoyed the story-and definitely the costumes I feel the movie is best suited for elementary school age children and older.
The acting is superb-and the costumes will blow you away.

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.
