Zwerg Nase

There are commercials on tv for a new animated movie. It looks like a typical damsel-in-distress, saved by gallant man movie. The weird thing? It's called "Zwerg Nase." Well I know that Nase means nose, so I looked up Zwerg, and it means dwarf or midget. Midget Nose? In the ad no one has an unusual nose, nor are there dwarves or midgets. Am I missing something?

Kevin looked up Zwerg Nase and found that it's a popular German fairy tale. It's more like a Beauty and the Beast story where a small boy is kidnapped and turned into...a dwarf with a big nose. See the connection? There was a picture of Zwerg Nase from the movie on the web, which they don't show in the ad. Apparently in the ad they just give the ending away because all they show is the man getting the girl. Anyway, it's good to have that settled.
