Disneyland, which finally reopened last Friday, has revamped its famed “Snow White” ride to include the climactic moment from the classic 1937 film in which the Prince awakens the sleeping princess with a kiss, and some women are slamming the moment, snapping, “Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue?”
The ride, formerly known as “Snow White’s Scary Journey,” had featured scenes from the movie, some of them in the dark, including a dungeon scene, and culminated in the Evil Queen, who had poisoned Snow White before the prince ultimately awakened her, screaming as she fell to her death.
In the film, the evil Queen says as she prepares the poisoned apple and speaks to a raven:
Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through. Look! On the skin. The symbol of what lies within. Now, turn red to tempt Snow White. To make her hunger for a bite. Have a bite?
