It’s actually not ‘Mirror, mirror on the wall’ — here is the correct quote!

by Staff writer

There are a lot of reasons we misquote popular movie lines.


Sometimes we misremember movie quotes because a sequel or the book version was different.

Other times, a misquote gets reinforced by other movies and TV shows misquoting it and reinforcing an incorrect memory in our minds — as is the case of the old time classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937).

The misquote as it has appeared on several remakes and spinoffs has always been: “Mirror, mirror, on the wall – who’s the fairest of them all?

But it might interest you to know that the real quote is actually: “Magic mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?

Still in doubt?

Here is our evidence!

    1. Yes you’re correct. So there is this theory of the Mandella effect. Things we remember one way are not how they are now. The theory is that Cern and their antics either destroyed our current universe or shifted us to a nearly identical parallel universe. In this parallel universe, things are almost exactly the same, but there are subtle, slight differences. Like the quote about mirror mirror now being magic mirror. Someone I know claims Looney Tunes used to be Looney Toones. Unfortunately, I don’t remember how tunes was spelled from when I was a kid to verify.

  1. I have a photo of the book, copyright 1972 by Walt Disney Productions International and Pan-American by Random House Inc and in that children’s book it is printed, “Mirror, mirror on the wall.” So we know it was at least printed in the book as “Mirror Mirror”.
