Their first film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, was released in 1937 and became the first feature length film to utilize traditional animation techniques.

Disney explored the method of showing a story through a non-human source with Bambi (1942), began taking popular literature and creating films acceptable for children with Pinocchio (1940), and established the now famed Disney Princesses with Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937) (Odyssey). Villains created during this time period were illustrated to appear how villains were expected to look, meaning that they were illustrated with hard lines and angles in contrast to the protagonist’s softer curves.
