About Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs
This outrageous fairy tale spoof starts as Snow White steals a pair of red shoes that transform her into a princess.
Meanwhile, a witch’s curse turns seven brave princes into dwarfs, forcing them to seek out the princess, hoping for a kiss to break their spell.
Together, they must face Snow White’s wicked stepmother – who will stop at nothing to get her precious shoes back – and, along the way, learn that true beauty lies within!
