Snow White is the protagonist of Disney's first animated feature-length film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. She is a young princess; the "Fairest of Them All", whose beauty is defined by her inherent kindness and purity. Shortly after finding love in a charming Prince, Snow White learns that her jealous stepmother, The Evil Queen, is determined to kill her. Snow White forcibly runs away from home to escape the queen's wrath, but finds shelter in the cottage of seven dwarfs. Now a refugee, Snow White dreams of reuniting with her prince and living happily ever after.
Snow White is the first member of the Disney Princess line-up. Her character provided the basis for later heroines in Disney fairytales such as Cinderella, and Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. Many of Snow White's traits - such as her royal lineage, friendly relationship with animals, and propensity for singing - continue to inspire both heroes and heroines in Disney animations to this day.
