A Plethora of Snow Whites

Seriously, people, what's with all the Snow Whites? It's like the whole Armageddon/Deep Impact phenomenon. Fairy tales, Snow White in particular, are trendy right now, and we have them popping up out of the woodwork all over the place.

First off, we've got Once Upon a Time, the new ABC show about fairy tale characters who don't know who they really are, living in a little town in Maine, ruled by the mayor/evil queen. This show is four episodes in and I'm totally hooked. I just love it. In this rendition, we have Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White.

I like her as Snow White, though she's a bit older than I usually picture the character to be. She's more like a grown up, independent Snow. Also, in the fairy tale world, her Snow is seriously awesome.

We have the new movie Mirror, Mirror with Lily Collins as Snow White. She's definitely got the right coloring, but the star of this movie really seems to be Julia Roberts as the evil queen. 

Seriously cool dress.

I can't decide if this looks good or not. It's almost trying too hard to be funny and ends up being sort of ridiculous. Who knows, though, it could be great.

And lastly, we have Snow White and the Huntsman, with Kristen Stewart as Snow White. I'm not really sure about this casting. I thought Kristen Stewart was  Bella Everywoman, not 'the fairest in the land'.

Again we have a much more famous evil queen to steal the show in Charlize Theron, but Snow seems like more of a bad-ass, so that's fun.

If anyone asked me, I would have said that the best person to play Snow White (in my mind) would be Anne Hathaway. I think she is so beautiful and would be ideally suited for the role.

She would be my Snow White. Who would be yours? Any of the above strike your fancy?


  1. I'm beyond excited for SW and the Huntsman.
    However, my ideal Snow would be Liv Tyler. (I love the idea of Anne Hathaway, though!)

  2. I agree with you that Kristen Stewart was not the best pic for Snow White...I know I will make a lot of Twilight fans angry when I say this but I could not stand her in Twilight. I just couldn't do it.

    I 110% agree with you about Anne Hathaway as Snow! That would have been amazing!

    I STILL haven't gotten to see even one episode of Once Upon a Time!!! Maybe I will just buy the season when it comes out. lol

    This is actually the first time I've heard about Mirror Mirror. I love Julia Roberts! =)

  3. Snow White is my favorite character on Once Upon a Time. She is adorable and I love her.

  4. Gretchen - Liv Tyler would be a great Snow White. She has exactly the right coloring and looks.

    Julie - I agree with you on everything. I'm hoping her mumbly awkwardness was just her interpretation of Bella and that she won't be that way playing Snow

    Ashley - she is wonderful!! I love that show.

  5. I'm loving Once Upon a Time, too! And Ginnifer is totally adorable as Snow/Mary. (Although I much prefer her short hair.)

    I agree wholeheartedly that Mirror, Mirror has a strong chance of going too far into the silly, but I'm sure I'll see it regardless.

    I don't really have a particular Snow White in my head as the perfect one, but I think Bridget Regan has pretty accurate coloring.

  6. @Mandy - I love Once Upon a Time. It's my favorite new show this year.

    Bridget Regan definitely looks like a good Snow.

  7. I didn't expect Snow White and the Huntsman to grab me, but I like the trailer. Maybe it's because I love Charlize Theron. But with that vague accent, I can't help but be reminded of Arrested Development and start giggling ;)

    I think Allison Brie would be a good Snow White - so pretty!

  8. Bridget Regan is the perfect Snow White for me!:)
    I think Anne would have made a good Snow White too, but I also think that it might be too much of a typecast after the Princess Diaries, Alice in Wonderland and especially Ella Enchanted.
    I haven't seen Once Upon A Time or Mirror,Mirror but I like Ginnifer Goodwin and Lily Cole and look wise they certainly feel right.
