The Old Peddlar Woman

Old Hag Grimhilde is a disguised form of The Evil Queen from the classic Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. When the Queen needed a way to get rid of Snow White once and for all for because of her beauty, she turns herself into a witch as a disguise.

Appearances

The Queen's Transformation

One night the Queen once again consults the slave in the Magic Mirror, who tells her that Snow White is living in the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs and that the Huntsman has brought her a pig's heart. Furious, the Queen descends a spiral staircase, entering a dark chamber filled with arcane and magical artifacts, as well as a raven perched on a skull. The Queen decides to go to the cottage herself, disguised as a peddler. Consulting a potions book on disguises, she mixes the required potion ingredients and drinks it, grabs her neck and tightly squeezes it until she effectively died. But she succeeds, transforms into the Witch and comes back to life when the transformation was complete. She ends up remaining in this form for the rest of her life. She reads through an unnamed book (supposedly a book of death spells) and decides that the method she is going to use is the Sleeping Death, which the only ingredients that are needed are an apple and a cauldron of poison

The Poisoned Apple

The Witch brews the poison and dips an apple into the brew, turning the fruit a tempting red. (During this scene, she is speaking directly to the audience.) She reads that the victim of the poison can be revived by 'Love's First Kiss', but convinces herself that the Dwarfs will bury the poisoned Snow White. Cackling to herself, she puts the apple in a basket, and walks down through the dungeon below, emerging from the castle's catacombs in a raft. As she makes her way to the dwarfs' cottage, two sinister vultures see her and, sensing that death is imminent, quietly pursue her.

Pursuing Snow White

She reaches the cottage and, according to plan, finds that the Dwarfs have left and Snow White is alone. Catching the girl by surprise, the Witch offers her the apple, but is attacked by the animals of the forest (who sense danger when they notice the two wicked vultures). Snow White does not recognize any danger in the old woman and lets her into the house to offer her a drink of water, while the animals rush to find the Dwarfs. The Witch tells Snow White that the apple will grant wishes, and, knowing of Snow White's romance with the Prince, persuades her to wish for a happy reunion before taking a bite. Snow White falls to the floor, taken by the Sleeping Death, and the Witch cackles with glee as a storm starts outside.

The Witch's Defeat

The dwarfs arrive in time to see her leave and, led by Grumpy, chase her up a tall mountain and corner her on a cliff. She attempts to crush them by dislodging a huge rock with them beneath it, but lightning strikes the cliff ledge, she is standing on causing her to fall hundreds of feet off the mountain. As she falls the rock tumbles down after her. The dwarfs watch as the two wicked vultures fly down to her body at the bottom of the cliff.
