Top 5 Versions of Snow White

Snow White is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable characters in any fairy tale.  So it isn’t too far of a stretch when I say that her legacy has stretched over different media, becoming lighthearted all the way to straight dark.  In this post, we’re listing the top five best incarnations of the fairy tale character Snow White in all media.


5. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This could be said to be the original Snow White which Disney gave to the world, presenting a likable character filled with hope and imagination despite the adversity of her stepmother.  She is without a doubt the physical manifestation of all that is good and pure.  Portrayed by Adriana Caselotti.


4. Avengers Grimm (2015)

The film portrays a very strong, very determined Snow White who’s not only absolutely hot but also has the ability to manipulate ice powers such as forming ice daggers and freezing enemies whole.  Although there isn’t much to her character (with little to no backstory unfortunately), she does a great job of being a badass and kicking bad guy booty. Portrayed by Lauren Parkinson.


3. Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

Though Stewart is known for her near emotionless expressions in her performances, at least she does have a great reason to be in this film.  This version of Snow White literally goes through hell, but does dawn her father’s armor and weapons so I guess she is a badass in her own right. Portrayed by Kristen Stewart.


2. The Wolf Among Us (2013)

Perhaps the most emotionless Snow White on this list, she is a deputy mayor of Fabletown and definitely carries the title to heart with an icy attitude and true grit.  Despite her hard exterior she is friendly and generally cares for others. Portrayed by Erin Yvette.


1. Once Upon a Time (2011-present)

Once Upon a Time

This is by far the most relatable Snow White on the list.  She isn’t just a good guy but a total badass, especially with a bow and arrow.  She isn’t pure by a long shot nor is she naive but she is human.  She is adventurous, courageous, and what the physical manifestation of true love means along with her husband, Prince Charming. Portrayed by Ginnifer Goodwin.
