A new princess is introduced in "The Tower" episode of "Once Upon a Time," but singing birds and glass slippers are replaced by scary, black robe-wearing creatures as we say hello to Rapunzel. The episode starts off with a nightmare in the past (during the missing year). Prince Charming, seeing the room and the crib where he and Snow once laid baby Emma Swan to sleep, turns to see a grown up Emma dressed like a princess. She asks Charming to teach her how to dance -- it's a sweet daughter-daddy moment -- until it's not. She's violently pulled away into the cabinet that transported her to our world.

In the "Lady of the Lake" episode of "Once Upon a Time," royalty shows it can be both evil and touching, and Snow and Charming fight on opposite sides of the magical veil to get their family back together. Snow and Emma, still trapped in the enchanted forest, meet Cora, the mother of Regina and possibly a greater evil. Naive Emma, just talking away. Luckily, they're pulled out of the hole to meet the camp's leader ... Lancelot. Yes, he who was once "of the roundtable," knew Snow White.

"New York City Serenade" brings us back from the midseason hiatus on "Once Upon a Time," offering a whole new story line and leaving Neverland far behind. Emma and Henry are in New York, blissfully ignorant of the magical world, while the menagerie of heroes, creatures, evil queens and pirates that inhabited the Enchanted Forest have been banished from our real world. But something has happened to make Captain Hook return to the Big Apple for Emma. Oh, and there's a Wicked Witch now, but we'll get to that.

Encased in a coffin, waiting to be brought back to life: That's how Snow White spends a good portion of the folk story that bears her name. There's no such downtime for the princess in the snappy retelling "Mirror Mirror," a fractured fairy tale that occupies the divide between Disney and Grimm. A booster shot of testosterone lends kinetic kick to director Tarsem Singh's visually inventive interpretation, without shortchanging the requisite froufrou or sugarcoating the story's dark Oedipal heart.

The Gypsies in a Trunk acting troupe will begin another series of plays for families June 1 with a version of "Snow White." Performances will be held at 4 p.m. June 1 at Rancho Simi Park in Simi Valley; at 11:30 a.m. June 8 at the Community Recreation Center in Camarillo and at 4 p.m. June 8 at Barranca Vista Park in Ventura. All performances are free and will be held outside. Blankets are suggested and snacks are welcome.
"Snow White" is fairy-tale light in the Falcon Theatre's cozily familiar production. It's the kind of breezy comic diversion that had been the theater's most usual children's fare until its most recent season, featuring the anarchic Troubadour Players' circus madness, "Funky Punks With Junk in Their Trunks," and avant-garde French duo Blue Palm's poetic theater-dance piece, "Childhood."

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what's the best Snow White of all? Perhaps not "Snow White: A Tale of Terror." But Showtime's gothic, darkly comic, creatively mounted, lush new adult version of this classic Grimm Brothers fairy tale is a worthy alternative to the cuddlier "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." None of that kid stuff here. This is the unauthorized story that had to be told, the story that timid Disney wouldn't dare tell.
"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"--the movie--isn't the only Walt Disney landmark available again. There's also "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the soundtrack album. And it, too, is a delight. Where the 1937 "Snow White" movie has the distinction of being Disney's first full-length animated feature, the "Snow White" album was also a historic first: the first genuine soundtrack release.

Early in"Snow White and the Huntsman,"several droplets of blood fall to the frozen ground in extreme slow motion, a sample not only of the menace to follow but also of first-time director Rupert Sanders' truly painstaking attention to detail. The shot was the last sequence filmed by the veteran commercial director, and no matter how hard the crew tried, the production's artificial serum never had the proper viscosity or splatter. "It just looked like raspberry jam," Sanders said.

The risks that Helen Oyeyemi takes in her fifth novel, "Boy, Snow, Bird," are astonishing in their boldness. "Nobody ever warned me about mirrors," begins the narrator, Boy, a pale white girl in Manhattan's East Village whose rat-catcher father beats her until she runs away to a small town in Massachusetts and marries a man she doesn't love. It is 1953. The man she doesn't love, a widower, has a small child, also very pale and very beautiful, and very beloved by all, named Snow. In time, Boy and her husband have their own child, Bird, who is black; this is how Boy discovers that her husband and much of his family have been passing for white.

Two and a half weeks remain until the March 9 mid-season premiere of ABC's "Once Upon a Time" (entitled "New York Serenade"), and a lot of new info has come out in the interim that hints towards a magical smackdown in the Enchanted Forest. To recap the winter finale: Storybrooke is gone (supposedly) as the curse that brought the storybook characters into this world was reversed by the evil Peter Pan, played ably and creepily by Robbie Kay. Peter Pan was stopped by Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle)

"Once Upon a Time" fans have been waiting for her to show up since even before it was revealed at Comic-Con that she would be a guest star. Ariel from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" finally arrives, fittingly in the "Ariel" episode. Like many of the characters that appear, her story is a bit tragic, and that has to do with Regina the evil queen. It's the past in the Enchanted Forest, apparently a section way off where they don't know much about Snow White. The princess is on the run from local soldiers intent on bringing her back to the queen.

Captain Hook gets the spotlight in the "Good Form" episode of this week's "Once Upon a Time. " The mysterious bad boy pirate has never seemed like a cut-throat ne'er-do-well, just a regular ne'er-do-well, and we get to see that despite his "me first" attitude, he does have some compassion. And maybe a bit more for Emma Swan. This week, everything is basically in Neverland -- and that's where we start. The Lost Boys are going a bit wild and Henry gets caught up in it, stick fighting with a challenger.

Hey, Kristen Stewart, tell the paparazzi how you really feel.  The "On the Road" star, who's never been a fan of this particular shade of limelight, went berserk when a shutterbug tried get an informative glimpse of the 23-year-old actress as she was standing by a Los Angeles building Monday, according to TMZ, which obtained the footage. Stewart colorfully told the photographer - in a manner that isn't fit to repeat on this particular news site - to go away. When he asked her why, she didn't hold back.

"Snow White and the Huntsman,"starring a fierce Kristen Stewart and an even fiercer Charlize Theron as warring sides of good and evil, is a baroque enchantment filled with dazzling darkness, desultory dwarfs, demonic trolls and beastly fairies. It is an absolute wonder to watch and creates a warrior princess for the ages. But what this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white. Perhaps they are saving the passion for the sequel, for it seems there is surely one to come after director Rupert Sanders' brilliantly inventive debut.

Snow White had to make do with just four dwarfs due to cost-cutting at a theater in the eastern German town of Stendal, the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper reported. The Altmark Stendal theater said it could afford only six actors for its Christmas rendition of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," which led to protests from theatergoers.

The Evil Queen usually denies the "evil" moniker put in front of her regal title on "Once Upon a Time. "  Regina takes full possession of the name in "The Evil Queen" episode, and the mysterious duo of Tamara and Owen finally make their play, with some aid by Hook. Hook, kidnapped after thinking that his life's goal of killing Rumpelstiltskin had been achieved, is offered another killing deal by Tamara and Greg. They say that they can kill magical creatures and need Hook's help.

Following hard upon "The Artist," "Blancanieves" is the second silent black-and-white feature to emerge from Europe in little more than two years. A pair of films don't exactly make a trend, but "Blancanieves" has enough going for it to make you wish it did. A major critical success in its native Spain, where it won 10 Goyas (the Spanish Oscar), including best picture, "Blancanieves" is different in tone from "The Artist. " The title translates as "Snow White," and Pablo Berger (who made the wonderful comedy "Torremolinas 73" a decade ago)
