Today we are excited to tell you that on Sunday night at 8 PM ABC will be airing an
all-new special  that gives Snow White fans an “unprecedented look at Walt Disney’s journey to create the historic first full-length animated feature film.” “Behind the Magic: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” will show fans how Walt Disney “decided to take a big creative, financial and personal risk: he put his small animation studio – until now dedicated to turning out comedy shorts – to work adapting a fairy tale into a full-color, full-length animated feature film.”
