We live in uncertain and troubling times in a tumultuous world: economic instability, growing international tensions, warring political parties, and a supposed apocalypse looming. Whatever can we do to face the onslaught of cynicism and hardship? Though my voice might not be the loudest in the grand scheme of things, I say we give a little whistle, wish upon a star, and face each day as it comes with a smile and a song. Yes, all the world needs is just a touch more Disney magic to make each day a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day and remind us “all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” So my way of spreading some pixie dust around is to end my previously unannounced hiatus and return Waking Snow White to its former glory. Granted, I am well aware that the fiftieth animated film milestone has come and gone; fortunately, I am just in time to celebrate an even bigger landmark for the Mouse: 2012 marks Walt Disney Animation’s seventy-fifth year. That’s seventy-five years of creating timeless magic for the entire world to enjoy time and time again, and I do believe that is indeed something worth celebrating. I am determined to make the remainder to 2012 the grand finale for Waking Snow White, and hopefully create a happily ever after for it that has been worth the wait. So if y’all are ready and willing to finish this journey with me, I do believe this princess’ nap has lasted long enough.
