Episode 9: Walt Disney's SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS with Hector Navarro
Today is a very fun and exciting day: Today is Hector Navarro day on SENDING THE WOLFE!
You may know Hector from Geek & Sundry, Hyper RPG or DC All Access like I did, so you can imagine my surprise when he selected Walt Disney's SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS as his movie for the show. What I quickly learned, however, is that Hector's passion for animation spans his entire life and our conversation about the medium is one of my favorites.
I was a bit worried that people would see "Walt Disney" and "SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS" and not listen to the episode but I am here to tell you that that would be a big mistake. Today's talk spans almost a century of Disney feature animation, that legacy, superheroes and Superman, fairy tales, cynicism, and so much more. I learned so much from this conversation and I think you will too.
Speaking for fairy tales and cynicism, if you're interested in reading my take on CINDERELLA in a woke and modern age, here is a link to the article "In Defense of the Fairy Tale: Does CINDERELLA Work In 2015?" that was originally published on Nerdist.
