Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After (also known as Snow White: Happily Ever After) is a 1993 American animated film created by Filmation. The story is an unofficial sequel to the fairy tale of Snow White. Aside from Snow White herself, the prince she falls in love with, the magic mirror, and the references to the wicked queen, all of the characters in Happily Ever After are unique to this film. Filmation had previously developed a plan to create a series of direct-to-video sequels to popular Disney motion pictures, but only this film and Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night were ever completed. The film was eventually released during the same summer that Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was re-released theatrically; sued by Disney, Filmation promised their character would not resemble the ones from the Disney version. An unreleased NES video game had been also planned in 1990 but a Super NES version of the video game was released four years later (a year later after the film's release).
