Where did you hear that? I have a whole book on the making of the film as well as the dvd filled with bonus features and don’t recall ever coming across that information. He signs “The Prince” at the Disney parks.[adrotate group="5"]June 10, 2013 at 5:24 pm #197818

I’m not actually sure where I heard it but I’ve known it for years- out history teacher even referenced it at the time we did that part of the course. I must say I don’t think we have his signature in our autographs book so I can’t say anything on that front but I’m sure I’ve read much about it. It’s a common misconception of Cinderella fans that Cinderella is a better princess than Snow White because her prince actually had a name when it was in fact Cinderella’s prince which had no real name.June 10, 2013 at 5:45 pm #197820
Hm…this site is claiming that he is not actually named Ferdinand-
I think it’s just a myth that he has a name, much like many people claim the Beast’s name is Adam, but the official answer from the film creators is that they forgot to give him a name.
Snow White’s prince was supposed to play a much bigger role in the story but the animators were having too much trouble animating a human male.June 10, 2013 at 5:53 pm #197822
Interesting, especially the fact that the name fits directly and perfectly into the history of the time as like I said there was a prince Ferdinand at the time and he was known to be a very handsome and sought after person. And the film was released in 32, the year Ferdinand was assasinated. In actual fact I also read that on the original sketches done of the prince he was in fact named Frederick… It’s funny that to me he has always been Ferdinand and I certainly can’t remember ever being told that or reading it, it’s just always been there. Hmm.
Which raises another question, who on earth came up with Adam then? Because I thought he was always prince Adam- I think he’s called that in the stage show…?June 10, 2013 at 6:15 pm #197824
Actually, the film was released in December of 1937. I have never heard of the Prince having a name, and I used to work at Walt Disney World.
I’m not really sure who came up with Adam…it’s now even on a set of Disney wedding dolls I saw at Toys R Us and has appeared in a Disney trivia game…but I have read an interview with the creators who denied that he was ever given a name.June 10, 2013 at 6:49 pm #197826
Haha, lol oops. I have just done my history exam and keep getting dates mixed up. Yeah I did know it was ’37 lol, need to get exams off my brain. Funny how Adam just appeared, this is all really interesting! Hmm so we have the strange fact that Ferdinand grew in extreme popularity- I’m sure I’ve done a quiz where Ferdinand was the answer. Really want to see if I can find the sketch with Frederick on it…November 23, 2013 at 10:55 am #226026once_dudeParticipant
You forgot to mention the most important fact for ONcers in summarising INto th Woods. There si a mysterious imp-liike character woh shows up form time to time and says things like “When first I appear, I seem mysterious, but when you know the truth it’s nothing serious.” (that was not the exact line oops) I wonder who this person reminds me of (cough cough Rumplestiltskin) I won’t give the spoiler away whom the mysterious person is in the tale.
