Disney is currently preparing a live action remake of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Peter Dinklage spoke about this project. And the actor said he was shocked that the big-eared studio decided to tell such a story again.
Disney prepares Snow White in live-action
For several years, Disney has been modernizing many of its classics by offering remakes of certain cult animated films in live-action. Among other things, we were able to see again The beauty and the Beast, The Lion King or Aladdin. Given the success of these feature films, the famous studio with big ears decided to continue its momentum. A few months ago, we learned that he was preparing this time a remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
In this feature film, which will be more soberly called Snow White, the heroine will be played by Rachel Zegler, seen recently in West Side Story. We also already know that Gal Gadot will give him the replica in the skin of the Queen. Some fans have already praised Disney for the film’s diverse cast, including the choice of lead actress. But Peter Dinklage had much harsher words about the project.
Peter Dinklage shocked by the project
Dinklage was recently a guest on Marc Maron’s podcast, WTF. And the actor strongly criticized the studio, who called himself a progressive when he chose to bring such a story up to date:
I was a little surprised when Disney said they were proud to cast a Latin actress to play Snow White. Because they still tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Take a step back and think about what you are doing. It doesn’t make any sense to me.
Dinklage then went on to point out Disney’s paradoxical position:
They’re progressive on one side and on the other, they’re remaking this f***ing story about seven dwarfs living together in a cave. What is that ? Have I done nothing to advance the cause? I guess I’m not being vocal enough. The actress and the film crew have all my respect, but personally, it shocks me.
The star of Game Of Thrones On the other hand, said it was up for it if Disney plans to modernize the original story in the new version of Snow White giving it a progressive plot. We’ll see if Erin Cressida Wilson, the screenwriter of the new film, has this idea in mind. In any case, you will have to be patient to find out. Because if the feature film does not yet have a release date, it will probably have to wait until 2023 to see it hit theaters.
