So my Great Grandpa was an air pilot in World War II. He used to sing us Whistle While You Work but they changed the lyrics while he was fighting in the war. The Lyrics are “Whistle while you work, Hitler is a Jerk, Mussolini bit his weenie now it doesn’t work.” I cant help but think of it anytime I see Snow White
I love Disney so much and it’s always been a dream of mine to work there as a character performer, but I know it will never happen because I’m autistic and really not good at interacting and conversing with kids. I’m a professional actor, and I’ve played Mary Poppins, Cinderella, and Snow White onstage, where I don’t have to interact with my audience. But knowing I’ll never play those characters in the parks still breaks my heart.
I know a lot of people hate how Disney keeps reusing the same “evil mother” villain, but I honestly love it when they do. I have an abusive stepmother and seeing princesses escape their own villains that are so very similar to my own gives me hope that someday I’ll be happy and free like Snow White, Cinderella, and Rapunzel.
I can sing exactly like Snow White. My friends thought her voice was annoying though, until I met someone in college who can also do it. Now I can fully enjoy myself with it.
I can’t watch Snow White anymore because it makes me think of my old neighbor who first gave me the movie. She was a nice old woman who loved the movie and it breaks my heart to think of how she must be lonely, or worse: dead. I just wish I could watch the movie with her one last time…
This sounds dumb, but Snow White is my favorite Princess only because she’s the only one who is flat-chested like me.
