Today we mourn the loss of Marge Champion the model for Disney’s Snow White, she passes away at 101 years young.
Marge was a gifted dancer and model for several of the most beloved characters of Walt Disney’s golden age of animation, most notably the iconic heroine of Snow White.
“Marge Champion brought all of her many talents to help bring iconic silver-screen women—from Snow White to the Blue Fairy in Pinocchio, to characters in Fantasia—to animated life,” Jennifer Lee, chief creative officer, Walt Disney Animation Studios, said. “Walt Disney Animation Studios owes Marge, a Disney Legend and pioneer in animation, our deepest respect and gratitude.”
Champion was honored as a Disney Legend back in 2007. D23 shared a wonderful tribute to her which you can check out here.
Her cause of death has not been released at this time.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
