Snow White and the Prince by Fatima Lakhani
“I’ve never been able to really get into the princess-centered Disney movies like Snow White and Cinderella because I can’t relate to Disney princesses. I’m not dainty and poised. My mother would give me grief for not liking the ‘girly’ Disney features. But I find non princess movies like Robin Hood and Big Hero 6 more exciting. But at 27 I still have a gender role guilt trip for not liking princess centered movies.”
Out of all the Disney deaths, probably the saddest for me is Snow White’s. Even though we already know how things will turn out in the end, Disney played up her funeral scene exceptionally well. Just the solemn organ music alone is enough to choke me up.
TRIGGER WARNING: I’ve never tried killing myself before, but lately I’ve wanted nothing more than to go to sleep and never wake up. I can’t watch the Disney fairy tale movies where characters go into deep sleeps like Snow White because I’ll wonder how peaceful it must be to be forever in a sleeping death.
