In case the two recent Snow White movies and "Once Upon a Time" weren't enough for you, Snow White is even having a moment on children's television.
The recently launched Disney Junior channel announced on Tuesday that they've started production on "The 7D," a reboot of Snow White's "Seven Dwarves."
Designed by Noah Z. Jones of the popular Disney series "Fish Hooks," "The 7D" look quite different from how we're used to seeing them.
"Our goal for Disney Junior is to engage kids with stories and characters that represent the very best of Disney storytelling," said Disney Junior Senior Vice President Nancy Kanter in a release.
"With 'The 7D,' we look to continue Walt Disney's legacy of reinterpreting classic folk and fairy tales in ways that delight new audiences. We're excited to re-imagine these familiar characters and put them in a new humorous setting that we think will entertain kids and parents alike."
The show's creative team has a pedigree going back to the beloved 1990s children's series "Animaniacs," "Pinky & the Brain" and "Tiny Toon Adventures," which might give us some idea of the tone of the series.
The show takes place in "Jollywood," whose Queen Delightful calls upon Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc (yes, the old names remain intact) to keep order in the kingdom. No word if Snow will make an appearance.
