I have been decidedly remiss in my posting in the month of March - so we're now on to April and it seems I have missed some news -
What were the seven dwarfs up to before Snow White entered thier life? A new pilot show announced for Disney Junior will explain just that:
7D (animated series pilot on Disney Junior)
Creators, including Walt Disney himself, have long been inspired to access classic folk and fairy tales... reimagining, reinterpreting and reinventing them for new generations. The animated series pilot 7D takes a new creative approach to the beloved Brothers Grimm tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, reimagining it in a comic and contemporary storybook world. The new music-filled stories introduce the whimsical world of Jollywood, where the kind-hearted Queen Delightful calls upon the 7D — Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc — for assistance.

This show is still in production and more details are sure to come. It is an interesting concept, but one that makes me more than a little nervous. Time shall tell if they get it right.
