Just a quick glance at the 'net:

www.rsc.org.uk/cymbeline/current/actors.html:

Something I've been reading recently pointed to the unbelievable
similarity between the story of Cymbeline and Snow White. For example,
there's

the princess
the poisoning
the terrifying and unknown world
going into a deep sleep
the princess awakening and eventually finding her prince
the prince who has to go through trials to find her
www.hudsonshakespeare.org/cymbelline.htm:
...elements that would feel right at home in Disney movie like Snow White

www.curtainup.com/cymbeline.html:
..a small taste of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/cymbeline/context.html:
...the scenes in the Welsh wilderness, especially Imogen's death-like
slumber, bear a striking resemblance to fairy tales like "Snow White."

While teaching Hamlet five ears ago, my students proudly drew my
attention to the possibility of finding some hamlet motifs in "Lion King".
