  1. So interesting to see the "prologue" with Snow White's mother. I wonder if that was a scene that was slated to be in the film until late in the planning?

    1. A number of the first SW books and comics to be issued included a mention of her real mother, so I think in the very early stages of the film's development, there probably was some thought of including her.
