The Evil Queen pictured here, is referencing the current TV show Once Upon A Time. She is actually Snow White’s Step-Mother because she married Snow White’s father – the king – after the death of Snow White’s biological mother. The Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs doesn’t reveal what Snow’s Mom actually looked like.
Disney recently posted the image below of a “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” children’s book from 1938.
Inside the book you see pages with a drawing of Snow White’s mother and what happened before the film’s “Once upon a time.” Here’s a little bite from the seldom-seen storybook published by Walt Disney Enterprises, where you can read for yourself and get a taste of what the good and kind Queen actually looked like. As a bonus, we also find out how she came up with such an unusual name for her daughter:
Pretty interesting, right?
The photo below is not from that book – but it is certainly similar to that one! This is pretty much what I imagined her to look like. How about you?
