The New York Film Festival (September 28 – October 14, 2012) , conducted by The Film Society of Lincoln Center, has recently partially announced its slate of ‘sidebar films.’
Ashdon, Inc. and Disney Consumer Products announced today the launch of its Disney Forever Enchanted collection, a new line of prom dresses inspired by the personalities and stories of each Disney Princess character. Every prom season, a new collection inspired by a different Disney Princess story will roll out beginning with Snow White (available January 2013).
Launching at retail in time for the 2013 prom season, the debut collection pulls from different aspects of the 1937 Disney animated classic film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and captures its essence through rich treatments and a variety of silhouettes and fabrics. With seven design themes and 75 style options, Disney Forever Enchanted offers a stunning array of possibilities and choices for Prom goers.
As a follow-up to its too-successful-for-its-own-good Designer Princess collection, Disney Store today unveiled its new collection, Disney Designer Villains. Ursula from The Little Mermaid, the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Mother Gothel from Tangled, Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians and Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland are presented in the collection. And, of course, no collection of Disney’s most heartless of the heartless without Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.
The Walt Disney Family Museum has announced that it will be honoring the 75th anniversary of Walt Disney’s first full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with a special exhibition beginning later this year.
On view from November 15, 2012 to April 14, 2013, the exhibition celebrates Walt Disney’s vision and the artistry of his dedicated staff, illustrating how they shaped and defined an entirely new American art form through their creation of this groundbreaking film. Guided by the vision of a master storyteller, 32 animators, 1032 assistants, 107 inbetweeners, 10 layout artists, 25 background artists, 65 special effects animators and 158 inkers and painters and countless production staff came together to create the masterpiece. The exhibition is organized by The Walt Disney Family Museum, and guest curated by Lella Smith, Creative Director of the Walt Disney Animation Research Library.
On Saturday, March 12, join Disney Design Group Artist Costa Alavezos and Disney Ink and Paint Artists: James Bonserio, Erin Magill, Theodora M. DeLaney, David Rippberger, Lynn Rippberger and Sharon K. Vincent as they celebrate the premiere of the Look What I Got! entry into the Ink and Paint Cel series. In the cel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs enjoy some confectionery creations from Sweet Spells located on Sunset Boulevard in the Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. Look What I Got! is also the first entry in the Ink & Paint Cel Series to feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Even though they’re being released in the UK (save for any importers who bring them over to this side of the pond), we just couldn’t resist mentioning these brand new Disney Princess pens from Pyramid International. Aurora, Cinderella, Snow White and Belle combine both form and function in these full body pens. And just that little something extra, the pens also feature a feathery dress as the perfect writing utensil accent for a budding princess.

Many Walt Disney World Resort guests are familiar with the miniature train garden located outside the Germany pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. But we’re willing to bet a much smaller number of them realize that the garden is actually specially decorated for holiday seasons and festivals going on inside the park. Today, Walt Disney World released this photo showing horticulturist Julia Clark working on the garden for this year’s International Flower and Garden Festival which kicks off March 3 and shows off one of the neatest feature of this year’s decor: miniature horticulturists working on a dollhouse-size topiary of Snow White.

I just came across this collection available from Acme Archives titled Disney Underground. The collection allows artists to offer what’s described as an ‘abstract pop surrealism’ effect to classic Disney characters, including the fab five.
Pictured to the left is Porcelain by artist Steven Daily (you decide who it’s meant to be as the artist claims any likenesses are coincidental). The giclee on canvas is limited to 100 pieces, hand-numbered and signed by the artist. It measures 19″ x 24″ and is available unframed for $250 (framing and other options available).
